( – Gemini, an Alphabet-owned company, has received a lot of backlash relating to its artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot. According to users on social media the image generator AI had created images that were historically inaccurate and would often replace White people with people of color including Asian, Native American, and Black people.

Following the backlash Google announced that they were going to pause the image generation feature and that they would put out an improved version after all of the issues that had been brought to their attention were addressed. 

Jack Krawczyk, the product management senior director from Gemini Experience had gone viral online for his social media post during the controversy. In a tweet that dated back to April 2018, he wrote “White privilege is f—ing real.” He proceeded to state “Don’t be an a—hole and act guilty about it – do your part in recognizing bias at all levels of egregious.”

In a post in 2021, he had also allegedly claimed that the inaugural address delivered by President Joe Biden was one of the “greatest ever” as he had addressed systemic racism and had focused on the American ideal. 

Another tweet that went viral had Krawczyk claiming that since filing his ballot in support of Biden he had been “crying in intermittent bursts.” However, Fox News Digital had found a series of other comments made by Google employees that seemed to show political biases. 

In 2020, Clément Farabet, the Google DeepMind vice president of research, which is created by Gemini in collaboration with Google Research made several comments in which he applauded then-President-elect Joe Biden while slamming then-President Joe Biden.
