Google employees upset that the company “protected” Andy Rubin

Google employees upset that the company “protected” Andy Rubin : Apparently, this news has not gone over well with Google employees. A story in Gizmodo states that executives of the search giant held a meeting with employees on Thursday, and one letter reportedly displayed at the gathering read, “Multiple company actions strongly indicate that protection of powerful abusers is literally and figuratively more valuable to the company than the well-being of their victims. What concrete and meaningful actions will be taken to turn this around?”

Some Google employees took to Twitter to vent their frustrations, including interaction designer Sanette Tanaka Sloan who wrote in a tweet that “We can do so much better.” She also said that the way Google handled the situation with Rubin and the two other executives is “crushing.”

The criticism from inside Google dovetails with the Times‘ initial report which noted that “nowhere was condemnation of the internet giant’s actions more pointed than among its own employees.” Rubin continues to deny what he calls “false allegations.”
