Racist Fox News Employee Fired
Fox News has fired a veteran comptroller this week after she made demeaning comments and gestures to black employees at the company. Judy Slater was accused directly by African-American colleagues, The Grio reports. Slater’s behavior was brought to the attention of Human Resources by coworkers.
Slater apparently thought it was ok to directly question if one her colleague’s three children had the same father. In another recorded incident, she called a black woman “sista” and complained openly about the way black people pronounced words. She wrote down words like, “sister”, “mother”, and “father” and asked the African-American employees to say these words out loud. On a third occasion, when saying goodnight to her black co-workers, Slater raised her hands in a “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture. This chick a out-of-line.
Kevin Lord from Fox’s human resource department said “we take any complaint of this nature very seriously and took the appropriate action in investigating and firing Ms Slater within two weeks of this being brought to our attention.” In other words, they got her out of their ASAP. Enjoy the unemployment line, ashy.
