Proof that in the world of new media, previous transgressions that prove that you’re a bigoted asshole will not necessarily be held against you. Keith Rabois works at Square, the credit card gadget for iPads and smart phones.
Mr. Rabois, in what he later characterized as an attempt at demonstrating the importance of free speech, harassed a Stanford professor while he was at law school there, repeatedly calling him a gay slur and, Ayatollah Khomeini-style, wishing death upon him. (“Faggot! I hope you die of AIDS!” and “Can’t wait until you die, faggot.”)
The irony? If my (notoriously accurate) gaydar is right, Keith is as queer as a $3 bill. Of course, this should come as no surprise to anyone who’s witnessed the hypocritical implosions of the likes of Ted Haggard and Larry Craig in recent years.
And judging by the childish defensiveness of some of his tweets, Keith might be hiding more than his sexual orientation. His 4th-grade Twitter bravado is the electronic version of a penis car.
UPDATE: Loathesome self-hating homosexual Keith Rabois no longer works at Square. Why? He married a beautiful young woman and took a year’s paternity leave to take care of his baby children.
Of course I jest. He hired some
boy toy guy, sexually harassed coached him, and then was sued by this young man (ingrate!). He was then hired by Bill “Falafel” O’Reilly Vinod Khosla. We wish Mr. Keith “Faggot” Rabois all the best!
