Anyway, I could care less what happens between that ignorant hillbilly and his employer, A&E. Obviously they have been good for each other, but now, to A&E, he has crossed a line. We will see.
Still, this is America; he has a right to his freedom of speech. But sadly for him, his employer has a right to can his ass in this type of situation as well.
Free speech sometimes has a price, just ask that Dixie Chicks, lady.
Finally, I am sure that conservatives will come to the defense of Justine Sacco as well.
In case you didn't know, Justine is an executive for an entertainment PR firm, and she found it necessary to show the world her ignorance via twitter.
"The communications director for media conglomerate IAC, which represents brands like OKCupid, is in trouble after publicly tweeting a racist “joke” that’s getting few — if any — laughs.
Sacco, who's represented brands also include Vimeo and CollegeHumor, was not immediately available for comment.
But the offending tweet disappeared late Friday night — which would be early Saturday morning in Africa. Just after midnight in New York, in fact, Sacco’s entire account vanished.
