We're used to accepting abuse from Apple as customers, but according to incriminating emails leaked to Mic, women who work at the company are asked to "think differently" by accepting unfriendly work environment, and so are some men. Goodbye forever, cruel world. This is worse than when Apple broke our hearts by taking away our beloved headphone jacks.
Melanie Ehrenkranz of Mic.com has amassed over 50 leaked emails from Apple employees, most of them women, complaining to superiors about discrimination and sexism in the workplace. She reached out to many of them for further comment.
Here are some low lights:
A woman named Danielle wrote an email to Apple CEO Tim Cook to address a problem with rape jokes at work. "Rape jokes in work chat is basically where I completely draw the limit," she wrote. "I do not feel safe at a company that tolerates individuals who make rape jokes." She says he never responded.
One woman said she missed out on possible promotions that were given to men under the table.
