The world has hated Apple Maps with a fiery passion, and Apple is ready to clean house and get rid of key people who were in charge of the disaster.

According to a tweet by Bloomberg news, Richard Williamson, the executive behind Apple’s new Maps app, just got fired by Eddy Cue. After Scott Forstall was recently fired, Cue was given the reigns on the Maps app and it appears that he’s wasting no time getting things fixed.

Richard Williamson oversaw the mapping team while Scott Forstall was Senior Vice President of iOS Software Development. Apple has not yet made the news of Williamson’s firing public yet, but the move is part of Cue’s plan to install a new leadership team for the Maps group. Williamson’s replacement is not currently known.
