A Black Google employee said he was stopped by security at his job after someone reported him.
Angel Onuoha, who is an associate product manager at the company and a recent Harvard University graduate tweeted that he was stopped by security staff who didn’t believe he worked for the company, Forbes reported.
“Riding my bike around Google’s campus and somebody called security on me because they didn’t believe I was an employee,” Onuoha said in the viral tweet posted on September 20. “Had to get escorted by two security guards to verify my ID badge.”
Two days later, Onuoha tweeted that security “ended up taking my ID badge away from me later that day, and I was told to call security if I had a problem with it.”
