The move came as quite a shock to many, given that since joining the company in 2008, Marcario has steered it to unprecedented success, in sales but also in amplifying its environmental activism.

Marcario has also been an unapologetic critic of Silicon Valley leaders and our current version of capitalism.

In a new interview for Lesbians Who Tech, released as an episode of Kara Swisher’s Recode Decode podcast, Marcario talked about the growing #StopHateForProfit Facebook ad boycott, if there is such a thing as compassionate capitalism, and what her next move may be.

And the most polarizing things create the most amount of ad revenue, I guess.

I hope this coalition of companies continues to grow and grow, and put more pressure on Facebook, with an actual hit list of demands.
