The message got the attention of the Secret Service and her employer, Cold Stone Creamery. She was promptly fired and the company spent much of Thursday responding to angry tweets about the womans post, FOX40 reports.
This employee is no longer w/the (sic) company & her disgraceful and completely unacceptable comments do not reflect our views, the company tweeted via its official Twitter account.
Helms had deleted her post and deactivated her Facebook account, but the damage was done. What may be even more disturbing than her post, is the fact that she initially didnt appear to be remorseful at all.
I dont understand what I did wrong, she told FOX40.
However, she later admitted that what she said was wrong. Helms also argued that she is not a racist and said she doesnt really want Obama to be assassinated because, after all, he does have two kids.
I think I was just really upset, and (the post) just kind of came out, Helms said.
Well she is getting death threats now.
And what about the folks on Twitter threatening the Republican presidential candidate?
Replace "Obama" with "Bush" and this never becomes news.
But I don't see any way to halt the slide into the abyss at this point other than civil war - or a properly coordinated counter-counter-revolution.
Most of us desperately want to avoid conflict but time and opportunity are ticking away. So maybe if we are lucky they'll just put us into re-eduction camps?
The nerve of her, - - hating Obama as much as he hates us!!
A little knowledge of Latin and a bit of history, and she could have gotten away with it.
Even if you think only your 'friends' will see it because you set your FB account to 'private'.
I agree she is wrong to be so vulgar, but it sounds like she was hot headed after the election results and let it fly. Her fault because someone did see it and snapped a picture.
Well it is freedom of Speech.
The freedom of speech does not protect one from the repercussions of its misuse.
Something I learned a long time ago, back in the usenet days. I draft my posts in notepad, read carefully and, most often, delete without posting. But ALWAYS think, THINK before hitting that SEND button.
At least she didn’t run over anyone.
Another Usenetter, eh? It reminds me of the days of my Everex 300 bps dialup modem to a POP to connect to the Internet, long before the term "www" became part of the vocabulary.
The only difference is that I used (and still use) vi instead of notepad to prepare my posts, many of which never got beyond the /tmp directory and quite properly ended up in /dev/null. :-)
Exactly. YAWN. Get back to me when the leftist scum are held to the same standard.
It does for leftists, apparently.
Man, - - if she’s getting that many threats over simply makin’ a hotheaded statement, - - just imagine what these same people would want to do to her if she was responsible for the deaths of 4 Americans, - - oh, - - wait a minute . . .
They will use her as an example to make it sound like all Republicans think the way she does.
I’m thoroughly sick of people acting as though using the “n-word” is the same as committing murder. How could it be, when blacks use it among themselves?
There are pejorative slang terms for just about every race and nationality on the face of the planet. Using ANY of them is not nice nor polite, but enough of the breathless outrage over the “n-word”; it’s no worse than any of those other pejorative words.
