C’mon son, you work at WalMart, how you tryin’ to clown ANYBODY?!?! The checks have officially stopped coming in for a 54-year-old Walmart employee after he posted a hateful Facebook post directed at Muslims.
A Walmart worker in upstate New York has been fired for a sickening Facebook rant about Muslims.
Terry Earsing, 54, posted online a snap of two women wearing traditional dress as they shopped in the Hamburg store where he was assistant manager.
Underneath, he wrote: “Halloween came early this year…. do they really have to f—in dress like that…your in my country … get that f—in s— off!!!!!”
A member of the local Muslim community spotted the comment and informed the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which in turn alerted Walmart executives.
An investigation was launched, and Earsing was promptly fired.
“As soon as we became aware, we began looking into this and as a result, this associate is no longer with the company,” Walmart spokeswoman Kayla Whaling told The Buffalo News.
“We set high expectations for our associates, and this associate clearly failed to meet these expectations at every level,” she added.
Earsing later apologized, saying it was a joke that had spectacularly backfired.
“I’m truly, honestly sorry about the whole thing. I just apologize. I don’t know what else I can say,” he said.
He also said that a friend had sent him the snap when he was not working and that he had added the caption and uploaded it from home.
Ryan Mahoney, president of New York CAIR, commended the store for its quick actions.
“We absolutely commend them for doing the right thing,” he said, adding: “I wish this person didn’t take this course of action and force this outcome.”
When are y’all gonna learn that the things you put on social media can affect your bottom line!!! And why the big deal about what another person puts on their body? You don’t have to wear the outfit so why ridicule the person who chooses to do so?
