Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff Was Ripping Apple During The New iPad Event

Here’s an odd tidbit to come out of Apple’s “new iPad” event.

Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff sat in the crowd and tweeted out a bunch of insults aimed at Apple.

At first he was cordial and just live tweeted what was going on, but as he sat there longer, he took more and more shots at the company:

After he started tweeting about diversity a few people pointed that Salesforce’s board is eight white men and one asian woman. So, he’s not exactly practicing what he’s preaching.

Why did he start a fight? We don’t know, but he likes attention, so maybe he was just trying to stir things up.

Anyway, we doubt he’s going to be invited back next year!
