Wow. Wow. Wow.
Nikole Hannah-Jones called out author Fred Joseph for using his massive social-media platform to get a white woman fired over an altercation he had with her at a Brooklyn dog park that we told you about on Sunday night.
“This didn’t sit right with me and does not seem like an ethical use of one’s platform,” she tweeted:
Yeah. This didn’t sit right with me and does not seem like an ethical use of one’s platform.

Hannah-Jones was responding to this tweet from author and Davidson College professor Issac Bailey that was also critical of Joseph’s actions:
This doesn't feel like a proportionate consequence for the offense. An angry encounter between strangers in a park doesn't need to be resolved this way. https://t.co/wLtwuQTEnu

Wait, we’re AGREEING with her?

I never thought I would see the day when we agree. But here we are 🤷🏼♀️
