Jim Frenkel was fired by Tor when official complaints of sexual harassment were made and investigated. I don't see any reason for a public apology. I think a private apology would be completely appropriate.
Sean Fodera made sexist remarks about Mary Robinette Kowal due to both of them being involved in an organization (SFWA) that was not Tor. Kowal said it was no big deal. Fodera apologized. I don't see why Tor would need to apologize for anything.
Irene Gallo calls a bunch of fans and authors "unrepentantly racist, misogynist and homophobic" while promoting a new book from Tor. Then goes on to say that a bunch of books are "bad-to-reprehensible" including work published and edited by Tor and books and stories written by people that Tor would like to work with. Multiple complaints are filed against her and there's a lot of noisy online activity asking what Tor's official position on the issue is. Tor's publisher posts a letter saying that Gallo's position is not Tor's position and their employees have been reminded to clarify the difference in the future.
For some reason there's a group of people out there that think these three situations should all be dealt with the same way and the only reason they weren't was sexism.
Not semantics. If her statements were made on a private facebook page and then leaked it would be a different situation but she put that comment up for the entire world to see. Vox Day sitting on the screenshot for month is irrelevant when it comes to how Tor should respond to complaints.
It wasn't a private facebook page, it was a personal facebook page. And she was busily promoting a Tor product (in fact if you look at the facebook page that seems to be the main point of the page) when she decided to insult a bunch of fans, coworkers, and authors. Which lead to some of these people lodging complaints against her and wondering what Tor's stance on the issue was, which lead to Tor's publisher making an official statement.
