OKCupid credits its boycott with helping force the resignation of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich:
A statement from an OKCupid spokesman said that the dating site firm is “pleased that OkCupid’s boycott has brought tremendous awareness to the critical matter of equal rights for all individuals and partnerships; today’s decision reaffirms Mozilla’s commitment to that cause.”
OKCupid ended its boycott on Wednesday after “consultation with Mozilla and understanding their commitment to take affirmative action,” a spokesman told ABCNews.com.
OKCupid’s management had not called for Eich’s resignation but the company said today, “We are satisfied that Mozilla will be taking a number of further affirmative steps to support the equality of all relationships.”
Endorse gay marriage, or lose your job. I predicted this world ten years ago, and people scoffed. Nice.
