The company's board of directors fired him over the Google Meet call which took place on Thursday night (16 November), and along with him, it was Greg Brockman who was also pulled from his position as a chairman of the board.

It was today (20 November) when both- Altman and Brockman arrived at OpenAI's headquarters which is based in San Francisco to negotiate a possible return to the company. 

After citing The Information, Reuters reported that Mira Murati who is the Interim CEO has told OpenAI employees that she had invited the two former executives. 

On the official page of X (Twitter), Sam was seen wearing a guest badge of OpenAI and made an expression which looked goofy. He wrote in the post: “first and last time i ever wear one of these"
