IN 2014th year, Ike was in the epicenter of the scandal, which cost him the position of Chief Executive Officer `Mozilla Corporation`.

For many, the news of the departure of Brendan `Mozilla Corporation` first seemed a joke : not only that Ike is one of the founding fathers of the corporation, it is also considered by many employees ,It is one of the most promising corporate employees, and largely thanks to his efforts, the company can move forward with confidence. But his departure was not a joke : at the end of March 2014.

According to them,

They realized the importance of this decision and are confident that it will bring them significant losses, however, if such a step will not be accepted ,in the future in part on their shoulders it will lay the blame for the oppression of sexual minorities in the United States. It is interesting in this story is also the fact that after the leaders of `Mozilla Corporation` few days decided to dismiss Ike from his position and apologize for such tactlessness. Of course,the incident has not been without criticism from Brendan and his development of defense, but the company refused to further discuss the conflict, putting the final point of the phrase that the CEO must take care not only of income and position the company in the market, but also be responsible for the user ,in whose hands is the real power.

For many, the news of the dismissal of Brendan seemed devoid of any meaning, however, as the company`s executives admitted that they agree that there must be people in the management of the company ,which not only meets the needs of the company, but also the norms of modern society, to which racism and homophobia were in the distant past.
