Well, that was fast. Hayley Geftman-Gold, the CBS legal exec who wrote on Facebook that she’s “not even sympathetic” after the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas because “country music fans often are Republican gun toters,” has reportedly been fired:
CBS has parted ways with one of the company’s top lawyers after she said she is “not even sympathetic” to victims of the Las Vegas shooting because “country music fans often are Republican,” when discussing the tragic mass shooting that occurred in Las Vegas late Sunday night.
“This individual, who was with us for approximately one year, violated the standards of our company and is no longer an employee of CBS. Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to all of us at CBS. Our hearts go out to the victims in Las Vegas and their families,” a CBS spokeswoman told Fox News.
Be careful what you post on social media in the wake of national tragedies. https://t.co/P23j9Px8qy
