CBS Executive Fired

Oct 3, 2017

An executive with CBS was fired after she went on Facebook and expressed that she was not at all sympathetic towards the shooting victims in Las Vegas. Hayley Geftman-Gold’s wrote, “I’m actually not even sympathetic [because] country music fans often are Republican gun toters.” She continued, “If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing.” This came just hours after 59 people were murdered and 520 people were injured in a mass shooting in Las Vegas. The post was picked up in Twitter and went viral. CBS announced the firing saying, “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.”
