Viewer Called News Anchor A Racist Slur And She Blasted Them On Air

CBS Atlanta anchor Sharon Reed gets a lot of hate mail at work, much of it leaning on pretty racist rhetoric from trolls online. It seems like she is just about done with tolerating it. BuzzFeed Newsreports that Reed received a letter from someone named “Kathy Rae,” which was filled with racist slurs, or it would have been if the person writing it knew how to spell. Reed shared the message on Facebook, which reads:

you need to be fired for the race baiting comment you made tonight
it’s o.k. for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites, really??? you are what I call a Niger not a black person. you are a racist Niger. you are what’s wrong with the world

No, Kathy Rae doesn’t mean the country.

Reed also took time out to talk to Kathy Rae on air, and wherever she is, someone better take Kathy Rae to the burn unit, because this is scorching:

Reed repeated Kathy Rae’s email live, noting the message sender’s spelling errors. Then she decided to let Kathy Rae’s hate do the talking.

“I think when arguing with somebody, you have to be careful not to mischaracterize their viewpoint,” said Reed. “So I won’t mischaracterize your view either, Kathy Rae. I get it. On December 5, 2017, you think it’s okay to call this journalist a nigger. I don’t, but I could clap back and say a few things to you. But instead, I’ll let your words, Kathy Rae, speak for themselves.”

Everyone is straight up in love with Reed right now:

And don’t forget her coworkers sitting on either side during this epic clap back. They know what’s up.

This Poor Guy Called Mike Pence Is Getting All Of Mike Pence's Hate Mail

Pop quiz time! What is the Twitter handle of Donald Trump’s soon-to-be vice president Mike Pence? Well, it’s not @MikePence, but plenty of people seem to think it is. In fact, @MikePence is owned by a liberal software developer of the same name, whereas the Mike Pence we all love to hate goes by @Mike_Pence. 

As you can imagine, this has led to a pretty hilarious situation where a software developer gets all the messages intended for a man who advocated for ‘conversion therapy’ to ‘cure’ homosexuals. Here’s a sample of what he’s had to put up with for the last year…

And this is all despite his biography clearly stating that anyone tweeting him probably has the wrong guy… 

Being a man who says he hates VP Pence to the very core, you can probably understand why Pence is so upset to share his name. 

At first, the software engineer tried to be polite and inform people that he isn’t the Mike Pence they think he is, but after Trump’s nomination and victory it all became too much. “I don’t generally waste the time to correct people,” he told NYMag back in July. 

So instead, he used his name as an opportunity to troll Trump supporters. “I get to troll conservatives a bit by pretending to be in a love affair with Donald Trump using my account,” Pence said. 

While he may not be enjoying the situation, everyone else finds it pretty hilarious.

While others said they were in a similar position.

And some just want him to replace the vice president entirely.

Mila Kunis Called Out Hollywood's Rampant Sexism In This Revealing Open Letter

As much as we’d like to think otherwise, Hollywood isn’t immune to the rampant sexism that plagues the workforce and ensures that women won’t achieve pay parity for another 136 years. And who better to reveal the horrific industry secrets than an insider herself?

Actress and businesswoman Mila Kunis penned an open letter, published on Ashton Kutcher’s website A Plus, calling out the culture of misogyny in Hollywood — and declaring that she’s done caving to the industry’s sexist approaches. 

She began her letter by recounting a situation in which a Hollywood producer threatened her career when she refused to pose semi-nude on the cover of a magazine to promote her upcoming film. 

“‘You’ll never work in this town again.’ A cliché to be sure, but also what a producer threatened when I refused to pose semi-naked on the cover of a men’s magazine to promote our film. I was no longer willing to subject myself to a naïve compromise that I had previously been willing to. ‘I will never work in this town again??’ I was livid, I felt objectified, and for the first time in my career I said ‘no.'”

The producer was wrong — she did work again (she’s Mila f*cking Kunis, after all) but the encounter stuck with her. 

“What this producer may never realize is that he spoke aloud the exact fear every woman feels when confronted with gender bias in the workplace.”

“It’s what we are conditioned to believe — that if we speak up, our livelihoods will be threatened; that standing our ground will lead to our demise. We don’t want to be kicked out of the sand box for being a “bitch.” So we compromise our integrity for the sake of maintaining status quo and hope that change is coming.”

In an attempt to avoid the misogyny of Hollywood, Kunis started her own production company, Orchard Farm Productions. After signing with a producer and pitching a show to a network, the executive wrote the following in an executive email chain:

“And Mila is a mega star. One of biggest actors in Hollywood and soon to be Ashton’s wife and baby momma!!!”

….Hmm, last time we checked, “Ashton’s baby momma” wasn’t the top entry on her IMDB page. 

With his email, the producer epitomized the issues women in the entertainment industry (and workforce in general) are facing. 

This is the entirety of his email. Factual inaccuracies aside, he reduced my value to nothing more than my relationship to a successful man and my ability to bear children. It ignored my (and my team’s) significant creative and logistical contributions.

Kunis ended the partnership because she’s a badass and completely over this kind of behavior. 

She ended her letter promising to confront Hollywood sexism head on. Because she will work in “this town” — and she can decide who she’ll agree to work with. 

“I’m done compromising; even more so I’m done with being compromised. So from this point forward, when I am confronted with one of these comments, subtle or overt, I will address them head on; I will stop in the moment and do my best to educate.”

“I will work in this town again, but I will not work with you.”

Yaaas. Bowing down. You tell ’em, Mila.
