Ads critical of Google’s decision to fire an engineer over a diversity memo are appearing all over Venice near the company’s office.

One of the unofficial advertisements shows the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs with the accompanying phrase “Think different.” Right underneath that image is a picture of Google CEO Sundar Pichai saying “not so much.”
