Street artist Sabo put up fake Google advertisements outside Google's offices in California to protest their firing of diversity manifesto author James Damore.

From RT:
On Friday, a street artist who goes by the name Sabo took credit for plastering anti-Google fake ads just outside Google offices in Santa Monica and Venice, California.

In one of the ads, the classic Apple slogan, “Think different,” is printed next to an image of Apple CEO Steve Jobs, while the words “not so much” are printed next to an image of Google CEO Sundar Pichai. Another ad features Google’s iconic styling with the word “Goolag,” a reference to Soviet labor camps, known as Gulags.

Sabo posted images of the ads in a series of tweets Friday, along with a message telling Google to “search these keywords ‘go F***k yourselves.’”

Sabo, a self-proclaimed right-wing artist, says his mission is to be “to be as dirty, ground level, and mean as any Liberal artist out there.”

The ads were apparently made as a protest of Google firing James Damore, an engineer who distributed a 10-page memo that argues the gender gap between men and women working in tech and leadership positions is due to biological and psychological differences. Damore’s memo also accused Google of silencing conservative political voices within the organization.

In an Op-Ed for the Wall Street Journal on Friday, Damore wrote that he was fired because he “committed heresy against the Google creed by stating that not all disparities between men and women that we see in the world are the result of discriminatory treatment.”
Incidentally, David Brooks of all people in the New York Times on Friday called for Pichai to resign.

"Either Pichai is unprepared to understand the research (unlikely), is not capable of handling complex data flows (a bad trait in a C.E.O.) or was simply too afraid to stand up to a mob," Brooks said.
