Business Insider has fired its CTO, Pax Dickinson, because of offensive tweets. How offensive were his tweets? Well, it depends on which ones you want to discuss. Dickinson dabbled in pretty much everything.

Who has more dedication, ambition, and drive? Kobe only raped one girl, Lebron raped an entire city. +1 for Lebron.

Aviators: on. Collar: popped. Smirk: engaged. A brogrammer at home in its native habitat. http://twitpic.com/5zii0g

Henry Blodgett, CEO of Businness Insider, had this to say about Dickinson:
A Business Insider executive has made some comments on Twitter that do not reflect our values and have no place at our company. The executive has left the company, effective immediately.
Business Insider’s team is composed of more than 100 talented men and women of many backgrounds, and we highly value this diversity.
We have no idea why it took until just now for BI to fire Dickinson, but at least it finally did.
