OkCupid, Gay Activist: Homophobic Mozilla CEO Steps Down After Dating Site Launches Protest

By Jeremy Staley | /Bent April 3, 2014 at 3:55PM

Well, well, looks like it's safe to open Firefox again. As for OKCupid, I officially forgive you for sending on me on at least 50 horrible dates.

Earlier this week, dating/hookup website OKCupid did something pretty fantastic. When users tried to access the site via Mozilla Firefox, they got this:

OK Cupid

You could go on and access the site anyway if you wanted (but if you're reading this blog, let's hope you opened Safari instead), but it was a nice, mildly ballsy gesture on OKCupid's part. And --- who'd of guessed -- it worked! Just four days later, Brendan Eich has stepped down as Mozilla's CEO, and Mozilla released this statement:

“Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn’t live up to it. We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves,” read the post, in part. “We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better.”

Well, well, looks like it's safe to open Firefox again. As for OKCupid, I officially forgive you for sending me on all those tragic dates. Here's to dating/hookup sites protesting horrible people everywhere!
