#AppleToo leader Janneke Parrish has reportedly been fired by Apple, with the company claiming it is because she deleted files off her work phone during an investigation.

Apple Maps program manager Janneke Parrish was accused of deleting files that reportedly included the apps Robinhood, Pokemon GO, and Google Drive, and by doing so, impeding an investigation. According to The Verge, Apple staffers believe that the firing is actually retaliation for her work organizing the group that talks about conditions within the company.

“We can confirm she is no longer with Apple,” Parrish’s attorney, Vincent P. White of White, Hilferty and Albanese, told The Verge, “but cannot speak further to address the situation at this time.”

Parrish previously said publicly that she was disappointed with CEO Tim Cook’s all-hands meeting, which was set up to discuss the issues of pay equality and harrassment. “With the answers Tim gave today,” she said, “we weren’t heard.”

This is the second reported firing after an Apple employee spoke out about the company.
