Mozilla CEO Brenden Eich has stepped down from his post, following a backlash over his support of California's gay marriage ban back in 2008. The most recent backlash was when OK Cupid decided to pull their support for the browser because of his beliefs.
Mitchell Baker, executive chairwoman of the Mozilla Foundation, the nonprofit best known for its Firefox browser, announced Eich's resignation in a blog post Thursday afternoon. She apologized to its users for its slow response saying, "We’re sorry. We must do better," she said.
Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech. Equality is necessary for meaningful speech. And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.
Our organizational culture reflects diversity and inclusiveness. We welcome contributions from everyone regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, language, race, sexual orientation, geographical location and religious views. Mozilla supports equality for all.
"What’s next for Mozilla’s leadership is still being discussed," Baker said. "We want to be open about where we are in deciding the future of the organization and will have more information next week. However, our mission will always be to make the Web more open so that humanity is stronger, more inclusive, and more just: that’s what it means to protect the open Web."
