Leo Laporte, head of the rapidly-declining TWiT network, has reportedly banned his staff from using any model black iPhone. The infamously race-ranting Laporte has apparently put the kibosh on any iPhone other than the gold or white model.
Laporte, who has on numerous occasions practically taunted African-American guest hosts with racially-tinged phrases and questions, is rumored to be so against the darker-hued devices, that he’s taken to posting memos prior to the Sept. 9 launch of the latest Apple creation. “Attention Staff: Please remember that only white- or gold-colored iPhones are permitted within TWiT HQ. Your compliance is appreciated. Any Android device of any color is permitted, however as those phones are hopeless anyway,” says one such memo that is posted in the TWiT staff kitchen.
