Charlotte woman filmed yelling at black neighbor has been fired from job at Spectrum

The hell is wrong with these people?

And yes, I’m blaming Trump for this kind of shit. Trump didn’t start racism, but he has stoked the flames and emboldened these shitheads to be proud of the awfulness that they embrace.

The woman who was filmed yelling at a black neighbor in south Charlotte has been fired from her job at Spectrum, the company confirmed Sunday.

As the videos went viral, the woman was quickly identified online as Susan Westwood. A screenshot from a LinkedIn page, which had apparently been deleted by Sunday afternoon, showed that she worked for Spectrum Enterprise in the Charlotte area.

In response to a question from the Observer about whether Westwood was still employed, a spokesperson for Charter Communications — which bought Time Warner Cable in 2016 and changed the cable company’s name to Spectrum — specifically referenced the videos filmed in a Charlotte parking lot.

“The incident recorded in Charlotte is a blatant violation of Charter’s code of conduct and clearly disregards the company’s commitment to inclusion and respectful behavior,” spokesperson Patrick Paterno wrote. “As such, Ms. Westwood’s employment with the company has been terminated, effective immediately.”

The Good Place

I don’t have much to talk about today (I need a break from the news, at least until the midterms are over so I’m still on a media diet) but is anybody here watching The Good Place? I literally just found out about it last week from a colleague and have been binge-watching it on Netflix. Such a good show. I hate 99% of network shows but this is really clever. Not many other sitcoms squeeze in Aristotle and Kant into plots.

What else is good out there Cynics?
