Ads criticizing Google over firing James Damore have been plastered on benches and bus stops near the company's office in Venice. Notably, some of the ads are negatively comparing Google to Apple and Steve Jobs.

Startup investor Alex Rubalcava‏ spotted the banners earlier today:

"Someone is in Venice is not happy about Google's firing of that memo guy. These are all over Santa Monica and Venice."

The ads appear to take issue with Google's firing of James Damore, a now famous former employee that wrote a 10 page memo attributing the larger number of male employees at the company to cultural biases and genetic differences. The memo sparked a heated debate; however, the firing of Damore for voicing his thoughts on the issue may have ignited an even bigger one.

A Blind survey found that a majority of employees at Google, Uber, Yahoo, Airbnb, Microsoft, Facebook, and Amazon thought that Damore should not have been fired. Apple employees were split nearly 51 to 49 in favor of his firing.

Damore has now filed a complaint against Alphabet under a provision of the National Labor Relations Act that protects workers' rights activists. Some legal experts say he has an 'above decent' chance of winning his case.

Today, New York Times columnist David Brooks called for Google CEO Sundar Pichai to resign over his handling of the situation accusing him of joining the mob against Damore.

The ads attacking Google accuse the company of hindering free thought/speech. For example, one reads, "Think Different. Apple > Get Hired. Google > Get Fired." Another reads "Apple - Think Different. Google - Not So Much".

Steve Jobs is legendary! Do not make him share a poster with someone so mediocre.

Demore gonna sue the sh!7 outta Google....Case will settle for an undisclosed amount. Libtards.....please realize you MAKE Republicans look good when you pull this sh!7...you MAKE Republicans look even BETTER when the libtard mainstream media then covers the story and helps Google spin it even further...You guys suck at being the underdogs now. And you guys can thank your underground status from the 8 year D'Obama dynasty.

Anything with is "ism" is cancer, certainly feminism is at the top of the list. Equality for all, even if you're white, straight and male.

DeMore never once mentioned any "biases" within that 10 page memo. He actually is addressing Googles hiring "biases" instead....Define irony...I can't believe how much of the American society has become self victimized and so damn sensitive to words....
