The FSF responded with this statement:

They're lying.

The employee (who I won't name, because I don't want her harrassed) was
being harassed by another employee who was transphobic. Her fellow
co-worker sided with him and then she started standing up for herself
because she was being bullied. She was identified as a threat to the
FSF's internal stability and then she was fired. What should have
happened is the people bullying her should have been fired.

Which is these people:
Stephen Mahood
Ruben Rodriguez

We in the libreboot project will never accept this. That's why we left GNU.
