Here’s little blurb most folks missed and I thought I would post about it to brighten your Monday just a bit. I know mine improved at seeing this.
Yeah, the name might not be real familiar to you but you will remember this little wench real quick here in a moment.
Remember her now?
Yeah, this one,
Jeong’s Twitter feed was filled with a host of messages that could be construed as racist and offensive. She compared “dumbass f—–g white people” to dogs, said that “old white men” were “lemmings,” opined that white people would “go extinct soon,” and used the hashtag #CancelWhitePeople.
“Are white people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically being only fit to live underground like groveling goblins,” she wrote in 2014 before adding a paragraph claiming that “whiteness” resulted in being “awful.”
Well it seems as though she actually supported a boycott of the very institution she worked for. They aren’t saying but I’m sure that rubbed someone the wrong way and the next thing we know, she quietly resigned from the editorial board this last August and is now working as a contracted contributor.
“I made the change so I can work on what I want to work on in the immediate moment,” Jeong told CNN on Friday.
Sure honey, whatever you say.
I’m sure scrambling day to day to make a paycheck as a contracted contributor is so much more liberating than say, being on the editorial board of a major newspaper.
