Apple fired a newly hired manager after staff protested his appointment. The man was hired in April to join the company’s advertising department.

It is Antonio Garcia Martinez, a former Facebook product manager who, according to Apple employees, made misogynistic and racist comments in a 2016 book in which the man testifies about his time at the social media company.

According to The Bloomberg news agency reportedly asked Apple employees to Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of software and services, about what went wrong during the hiring process to help promote the culture of inclusion at Apple.

Apple then discontinued the partnership, stating in a statement to Bloomberg that the company is “committed to an inclusive, open workplace where everyone feels respected and accepted.”
