OpenAI, the company that created ChatGPT, dismissed CEO Sam Altman stating that it ‘no longer has confidence in his ability’ to continue leading the Microsoft-backed firm. This move sparked a flurry of reactions on social media, with many, including BharatPe co-founder Ashneer Grover, expressing solidarity with Altman. Now, an entrepreneur’s post has gained significant traction on X.
In a witty take on the situation, entrepreneur Siqi Chen tweeted, “Pretty wild that the first job OpenAI took was Sam’s.” He humorously pointed out the irony that the company that impacted job markets through AI advancements sacked its own CEO, Sam Altman.
