Another dumbass racist has bit the dust … job-wise, that is. You’d think by now that common sense would have overcome them and shown these idiots that it simply doesn’t pay to show your true, racist intentions about the current residents of the White House on social media.
Yes, you would think that. However a Regions Bank senior-level employee, June Pridmore, was labeled “Racist of the Week” on social media after posting negative, misspelled comments on Facebook about President Obama and his family, some of which alluded to slavery, is no longer with the company, the bank says.
Pridmore was senior vice president of loan operations since 2008, according to her LinkedIn profile, which has been deleted, reports AL.com.
“I voted [Trump] in,” Pridemore wrote. “I like him. He has a beautiful wife unlike the ugly and embarrassing woman (for lack of a better word), in the White House now. Ms. Trump’s face would make Michele (sic) O’Bama (sic) a Sunday face.”
“I’m certainly glad [Trump] he has a lot of money because she he (sic) won’t be bought out like Barack (sic), socialist Muslim O’Bama (sic) or his wife or all those host of relatives they have in the whitehouse (sic) for US to support.
“They have sponged the US of money flying to every single location in which they could vacation, taking the Grandmother with them. ….Oh yes, and let us NOT forget they flew the family dog on a SEPARATE plane. If any idiot out there thinks that is justified, you deserved him as president.”
We’re sure you won’t be surprised to learn that the comments, like the spate of similar racists ones expressed through social media since President-elect Donald Trump’s victory, ignited a social media firestorm.
Regions, headquartered in Birmingham, initially said it launched an investigation and revealed its response today. Bank spokesperson Jeremy King said:
“We appreciate the concerns shared about offensive social media comments that were made through an associate’s personal Facebook account. We want you to know that we share those concerns. Those comments do not reflect our values as a company or the way we do business. The associate is no longer an employee of the company.”
