Oh boy, someone is not telling the truth!
Just a few hours ago, news broke that Parler had fired CEO John Matze.
Matze released a statement announcing he was fired and seemed to suggest he was working for free speech while his firing was a sign the company would be caving in to the pressures of Big Tech.
Take a look:
Parler CEO John Matze was terminated by the board. 🤷♂️

“I understand that those who now control the company have made some communications to employees and other third parties that have unfortunately created confusion and prompted me to make this public statement,” #Parler CEO #JohnMatze said in a statement.https://t.co/VF9udmSHHu

The Daily Wire had more to report:
Social media platform Parler has terminated CEO John Matze, according to a memo sent by Matze to staffers and obtained by Fox News.
“On January 29, 2021, the Parler board controlled by Rebekah Mercer decided to immediately terminate my position as CEO of Parler. I did not participate in this decision,” the memo read. “I understand that those who now control the company have made some communications to employees and other third parties that have unfortunately created confusion and prompted me to make this public statement.”
“Over the past few months, I’ve met constant resistance to my product vision, my strong belief in free speech and my view of how the Parler site should be managed,” Matze continued. “For example, I advocated for more product stability and what I believe is a more effective approach to content moderation.”
Well, Dan Bongino didn’t like that one bit.
Dan was FIRED UP and he immediately went online to “correct the record”.
Basically, Bongino says it’s exactly the other way around and that he would never put his name on something that did not stand 100% for free speech.
He seemed to imply it was Matze messing things up.
