Brendan Eich has stepped down as CEO of Mozilla, after a debate over the executives donation to an anti-gay marriage initiative threatened to overtake the companys inclusive reputation. In a blog post, Mozilla confirmed the resignation, adding that the company prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn’t live up to it, adding, we know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves. His resignation is a reversal from Eichs tone in interviews all week, which seemed to suggest that the CEO wasnt going anywhere over the issue. As Re/Code notes, Eich will also leave his post as the head of Mozillas related nonprofit foundation. Mozilla characterized Eichs departure as voluntary.
