Two weeks after making some controversial statements on his personal account on Facebook, Head of Communications of Grindr has announced that he will be no longer working for the company.

Controversial comments read like this: “Some think marriage is between a man and a woman. I think so, too, but it’s a personal matter, some people think the purpose of marriage is to have your own biological children. It’s a personal matter, too.”

Today, he wrote his resignation letter on saying goodbye to his former colleagues and said that“as an out and proud gay man madly in love with a man I don’t deserve, I refused to compromise my own values or professional integrity to defend a statement that goes against everything I am and everything I believe.”

In the same letter he thanks everyone who have helped fighting for LGTB community and added that he “will be cheering you on from the sidelines.”
