【美国】苹果副总裁Denise Young Smith为争议性的话语道歉

Apple's Diversity, Inclusion Chief Denise Young Smith Apologises for Controversial Remark

Apple's Vice President of Inclusion and Diversity Denise Young Smith has apologised for her controversial remark on diversity she made during the One Young World Summit in Colombia earlier this week, a media report said.

At the event, Smith was explaining how Apple focuses on diversity and commented that there could be "twelve white blue-eyed blonde men in a room who are still diverse".

"Diversity is the human experience. I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of colour, or the women, or the LGBT," Tech Crunch quoted her as saying.

"There can be 12 white blue-eyed blonde men in a room and they are going to be diverse too because they're going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation."

The comment attracted criticism from diversity advocates and commentators she made during a panel discussion.

On Saturday, Smith sent an apology to her team members at Apple saying that "she understands why some were offended by her statement" and attempted to clarify what she meant. 

据媒体报道,苹果公司的副总裁Denise Young Smith表示为她在本周早些时候在哥伦比亚举行的一次青年峰会上发表的一些颇具争议性的言论致歉。

在这次峰会中,Smith解释了苹果如何关注多样性,并评论说,一个房间里即使有"十二个蓝眼睛的金发白人男子,他们同样可以变得多元化"。

"多样性是人类的体验,当多样性或多样性被标记给有色人种、女性或同性恋时,我感到有点沮丧,"Smith表示,"当房间里有12个蓝眼睛的金发白人男子时,他们也可以变得多样化,因为他们会为对话带来不同的生活经历和生活视角。"

这一评论引起了在小组讨论中提出多样性的倡导者和评论员的批评。

周六,Smith向她的团队成员道歉,她说,"她明白为什么有些人因为她的发言而感觉被冒犯",并试图澄清她的意思。
