She further accused of being harassed at Google. “They lied, gaslit, subjected me to harassment, stalking, attacks online against me & team with close to ZERO Black ppl in this space at Google where ones who were there left one by one…[sic.]” she noted in another tweet.
Gebru posted a series of tweets about what all she had to go through and rebuffed Pichai’s claims of “allowing debate.” “But I understand how from your position of privilege you’d consider this “allowing debate”. Those used to treating Black women like trash and basking in their privilege would consider even having to answer this question from a reporter “debate.” These people are unreal, [sic.]” she further tweeted.
