Elon Musk Lays Off LGBTQ Employees At Tesla
During Pride Month?!?!!?

During Pride Month!

During Pride Month!!!

It's as if Elon Musk believes that normal business operations continue during Pride Month!

He's history's greatest monster!

Tesla has laid off both the President of its LGBTQ+ community and a lead involved in diversity and inclusivity programs at the company.

While they were let go as part of a broader wave of layoffs, it comes amid several comments Tesla CEO Elon Musk made, concerning what he describes as the "woke mind virus."

Earlier this month, we reported on Musk telling Tesla executives in an email that they need to cut 10% of the workforce and pause hiring due to having a "super bad feeling" about the economy.

Now we learn that many employees involved in diversity and inclusivity programs were part of the layoffs, including the President of Tesla's LGBTQ+ community and a lead involved in diversity and inclusivity programs at the company.

According to sources familiar with the matter, Bobby Berretta-Paris was let go last week. Berretta-Paris was a 5-year veteran at Tesla. He was hired as a recruiter and promoted 3 times over his 5-year tenure at Tesla. He was also the volunteer President of LGBTQ+ at Tesla.

Sources also told Electrek that a software engineer who had been working at Tesla for four years during which she was promoted three times -- most recently as senior software engineer in charge of naming conventions in Tesla's vehicle UI team. (Update: we removed her name.)

The engineer also happened to volunteer as a Diversity and Inclusion Leader and was involved in employee protection when it comes to issues of diversity and inclusion.

Last week, Musk fired employees who circulated an open letter which other employees were asked to sign, demanding that he stop tweeting because his tweets made them uncomfortable. He fired them because Tesla is a workplace, not an activist rallypoint, and because the employees involved might have been making other employees feel uncomfortable at work by involving them in their crusades.

On the other side of the professionalism and dedication to mission spectrum (so to speak), there's the US Navy, unfortunately:
