Julian Assange, the co-founder of news leak publisher WikiLeaks, has offered a job to the recently ousted Google employee who was terminated after he wrote an internal memo criticizing the company's diversity policies.
Google has not publicly named the author, but Bloomberg reported that software engineer James Damore confirmed in an email that he had been fired for "perpetuating gender stereotypes" and was exploring legal action against the Alphabet ( GOOGL) unit.
"Censorship is for losers, WikiLeaks is offering a job to fired Google engineer James Damore," Assange wrote on Twitter ( TWTR) Tuesday, while also linking to a WikiLeaks article he wrote entitled, "Google Is Not What It Seems."

Damore accused Google of stifling conservative voices in a 10-page memo called "Google's Ideological Echo Chamber," which circulated over the weekend.
