Yes, your activities on social media can cost you, your job! A Bank of America employee, Christine McMullen Lindgren who went on a racist Facebook rant on Wednesday has been fired from her job as a personal banker at an Atlanta Bank of America location after her rant went viral.
Christine McMullen Lindgren replied to an unidentified post by writing:
“I hate hate Facebook for this reason you f*cking n**gers. And yes, if [you] can call each other that well I can too. F*cking n**ger go back to Africa. Get over your pity party. You created this hatred and your own kind that brought your great-great-[grand]parents over here and sold them. Do something with your lives and your children’s lives. I’m sure you don’t work, collect welfare and teach hatred. Your poor children. All five of them you can’t afford because I pay for them.”
Several Facebook users sent screenshots of the racist rant to Bank of America's Facebook page with screenshots of Ms Lindgren's racist rant. Some Facebook users even threatened to cancel their account if Ms Lindgren continued to work for the bank.
Bank of America released a statement on Thursday saying that she had been fired.
