On January 15, 2022, Chamath Palihapitiya, Chairman of the Virgin Galactic Board of Directors, made statements with utter disregard for human rights and human life.

Specifically, Mr. Palihapitiya, made the following statements in the ALL-IN podcast (Episode 63):

“Let’s be honest, nobody cares about what’s happening to the Uyghurs.”


“The rest of US don’t care”


“I’m telling you a very hard, ugly truth, OK? Of all the things I care about, yes, it is below my line.”


“I think that human rights in the United States is way more important to me than human rights anywhere in the globe.”


In response to statement that people care about the shelves being empty, Mr. Palihapitiya states “sure, that I care about”, and goes on to list what he cares about.

Virgin Galactic’s mission focuses on EVERYONE, not picking one segment of the population and giving it a ranking as to their importance, as Mr. Palihapitiya voluntary opts to do. Mr. Palihapitiya’s statements were made in utter disregard for human rights and human life. He is not fit to serve on the Board, much less as Chairman, of a public company!

As investors, shareholders, consumers, and interested parties, we demand that Mr. Palihapitiya resign or be removed from his role. His presence diminishes the commitment and integrity of the company!
