My nephew Will, six at the time, told me that he got in trouble for talking in school because, in his words, “I can’t keep my big mouth shut.” Seems he’s not the only one with that problem.

Tony Blevins, one of Apple’s senior executives is leaving after he turned up in a viral video on TikTok making an off-color joke that he fondles “big-breasted women” for a living, reports Bloomberg.

In the video, published on Sept. 5, he was approached by TikTok and Instagram creator Daniel Mac as part of a series where he asks owners of expensive cars their occupations. The executive was stopped by Mac while parking a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, an out-of-production sports car that fetches hundreds of thousands of dollars.

According to Bloomberg, when asked what he does for a living, Blevins said, “I have rich cars, play golf and fondle big-breasted women, but I take weekends and major holidays off.” He also touted that he has a “hell of a dental plan.” […]

The main job of Blevins, a vice president at Apple, was to negotiate with suppliers to keep the price Apple pays for computer parts down, according to a Wall Street Journal profile of Blevins from 2020.
