CBS fires executive for 'deeply unacceptable' post after Vegas shooting
Los Angeles Times ^ | 2017/10/12 | Stephen Battaglio

Posted on 10/02/2017 1:12:44 PM PDT by Phil V.

CBS Corp. fired a vice president in business affairs Monday for comments she made on social media regarding the mass shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas. Hayley Geftman-Gold, wrote on her Facebook page that she was not sympathetic to victims of the shooting because, she claimed, most country music fans are Republican. Geftman-Gold also wrote: “If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing. I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”

Alcohol and social media are a bad combination.

Nah, a few weeks "vacation" until things cool down.

Let this be a lesson to our side too. There should be consequences for making ignorant and hateful statements on social media.

For instance, I'm sick and tired of so-called conservatives calling for California to "fall into the sea" or for NYC to get nuked.

The comments were deleted but not before they were picked up on a number of right-wing blogs and websites.

Who, having retained a shred of human decency, the Times now considers the bad guys in all this. I have to wonder, though, at what point it dawned on Miss Congeniality that her post might get her in trouble. It had to take at least as long as it took for those evil "right-wing blogs and websites" to take a screenshot or two...

So, a very highly-paid attorney got canned! I hope she meets kathy griffin on the sidewalk one day and both are fighting over an empty soda can and who gets to turn it in for 5cents.

More likely, she will get a high-paying job in a democrat administration doing what she likes: destroying normal human beings.

I take great sadistic joy in knowing that this twitter twat lost her job. For years ONLY normal people were fired for saying things. It’s about time that the vile left got some of it too.

And these are the people who try to pontificate about social issues, but all you have to do is get just underneath their thin facade to see how full of hate they are.

calling for California to "fall into the sea"

Actually, a great idea for America.

And I live here.

A really stupid post by this woman.

Wonder how she made vp, passed the bar exam, passed law school, graduated from high school, was promoted from elementary school.

Mindnumbingly stupid
