John Matze, fired last month as CEO of social media app Parler, told Axios that he feels “betrayed” by investor Rebekah Mercer, the heiress daughter of hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer.
Said Matze: “I thought I knew her. She invited my family on trips with them and everything. I thought that she was, generally speaking, I thought she was being real. And then she just abruptly has her people fire me and doesn’t even talk to me about it.”
He added: “I feel like it was a stab in the back by somebody that I thought I knew. And so for me, you know, I would never do business with her again.”Save to Favorites
