Sam Altman who was fired by ChatGPT-maker OpenAI has taken to X to issue a statement wherein he thanked all for the outpouring love that he received. Furthermore, the co-founder described it a strange day that felt like reading his own eulogy while still alive.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), he wrote, “I love you all. Today was a weird experience in many ways. but one unexpected one is that it has been sorta like reading your own eulogy while you’re still alive. the outpouring of love is awesome. One takeaway: go tell your friends how great you think they are.”

He further added, “If I start going off, the openai board should go after me for the full value of my shares.”

Earlier, OpenAI President Greg Brockman who announced that he is departing after Altman’s ouster said that they were informed about their removal on Google meet call.
