Chief Executive Officer of Apple Inc., Tim Cook today took to Twitter condemning the recent military coup d’état in Myanmar led by Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Min Aung Hlaing.

In his tweet, the tech head said – “The rising violence against the Asian community is a painful & urgent reminder that we must unite against racism in all its forms. There is no place for hate in our society. The team at Apple stands together & we will be donating to groups providing support to those affected.”

The coup has received strong criticism from various leaders all around the world and by several international bodies too. Recently elected US President Joe Biden too showed support for the Myanmar population which has taken to roads in protest of the coup.

Biden has also announced that the USA will be imposing sanctions against the military regime.

A resolution was passed by the United Nations Human Rights Council on Friday which dictated that the military must free Prime Minister Suu Kyi and other government leaders which have been kept under arrest.

Myanmar’s military has failed to meet the demands of the protesters and has extended its detention of Aung San Suu Kyi, whose remand had been previously set to expire today.
