Uber director David Bonderman has resigned from the company's board following a remark he made during an Uber staff meeting Tuesday that was widely seen as offensive to women, according to a source familiar with the matter.

The ill-timed remark came during an all-staff meeting to discuss of how the ride-services company would transform itself following a probe into sexual harassment at the company.
OR as I like to call it "Old white dude doesn't now how to stop mansplaining"

:lol:

Hey, brother, there'd be more talking but also something good to look at, knowwhatimean?

Seriously though, I have only been following this peripherally. This is a different guy than the CEO who is out/on leave, yes? And this meeting was to discuss basically how to not be a sexist company, right? Does that count as irony?
