An Apple program supervisor who posted nameless tales of discrimination suffered by co-workers on the tech big has been canned, in accordance with reviews.

Janneke Parrish, an Austin-based worker who labored on Apple Maps, is a pacesetter of #AppleToo, an internet group that printed tales of alleged “racism, sexism, inequity, discrimination, intimidation, suppression, coercion, abuse, unfair punishment, and unchecked privilege” confronted by Apple employees.

She was fired final week for deleting files — together with apps Google Drive, Robinhood, and Pokemon Go — from her work device throughout an organization investigation, according to The Verge.

In a tweet, Parrish, 30, implied she was fired in retaliation for her work with #AppleToo.

“There are consequences for speaking out. There are consequences for doing the right thing,” she stated. “But we do the right thing because it is the right thing to do. #AppleToo is about asking Apple to do better, to end systemic discrimination, abuse, and pay inequity.”
