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.

Student Snaps A Viral Photo Of Her Classmate With A Racist Pep Rally Sign

In a Facebook post that was shared over 3,000 times, a Hispanic teen shared an image of several of her classmates at a pep rally, one holding up a sign that read, “Put the panic back in Hispanic.” Another held a Trump campaign flag. Pep rallies are sure different than they were when I was a teen, huh?

“This happened yesterday at our school pep rally,” wrote the teen, Jennifer Lopez Vazquez. “They know it’s Hispanic Month. That’s very disrespectful in so my ways. But it’s funny to think that our school thinks it ‘OKAY’ this is Honestly what white trash looks like.”

The original caption on image, which was posted on Instagram by one of the teens in the photo, read, “Put the Panic back in Hispanic. #dontgetButthurt I’m honestly not gonna care if you do anyways so!! #sorryboutit.”

She might be sorry now, though. Since the photo has gone viral, local newspapers have picked up the story, and school administrators are investigating the behavior. 

“We are aware of a photo that appears to be taken at a Robertsdale High School football pep rally Friday Sept. 15 that is circulating on social media containing political banners and unacceptable language,” said the school’s superintendent in a statement. “School administrators, as well as my office, are following up on the matter.”

Basically: yikes. Also, high school students, you’re too young and under-developed to start experimenting with edgy “comedy.” (Like, what is the joke here, exactly?) Save it for the professionals.

Twitter Comedian Digs Up A Bunch Of Racist Tweets From Donald Trump Dating Back To 2013

A Twitter user posted some really disgusting old Tweets from — you guessed it — none other than 45:

Let’s take a closer look at these.

Don’t got to this original tweeter’s profile. Seriously. You’ll want to break something.

 This “editorial” is what we like to call “Completely Made Up To Get Attention”:

And, of course, don’t forget about his wish to reinstate the death penalty in New York specifically for the Central Park Five, a group of teenagers (four black, one latinx) who were exonerated in the rape of a white banker by a DNA test in 2002 after their 1989 conviction.

Donald Trump is a white supremacist. There are no other words for it. And people like @Freeyourmindkid want to make sure the world knows.

James Woods Tries To Slam Liberals For Tearing Down Racist Statues—It Didn’t Go So Well

James Woods Tries To Slam Liberals For Tearing Down Racist Statues—It Didn’t Go So Well

The “Ghosts of Mississippi” actor attacked “#liberals” by suggesting the removal of the Iwo Jima World War II memorial.

James Woods is furious over the removal of Confederate statues around the country. 

And to express his disgust, the actor, who is well known for his far right politics, suggested on Twitter that liberals may go after the famed Iwo Jima Memorial next.

Cue the Internet, which turned its mocking meme generation to eleven by offering up suggestions of other statues liberals might want to take down. No monument was safe, regardless of what they stood for.

Thank you, James Woods, for giving birth to the “I thought some of you might like to see it one more time…” meme.

Service with a smile? Sorry, Bob’s gotta go.

Wiggling french fries are a disgrace to the food industry. 

What’s the point? 

The Fonz should not be in bronze.

Too high to get over, too low to get under. 

Users also weighed in on the idiocy of the actor’s much maligned tweet. 

When one user took to Twitter to defend keeping the statues, he got schooled with some facts.

Some perspective.

This Marine revealed the logical flaw at the heart of Woods’s tweet.

But hey, we’re not out of the “Woods” yet, here’s one last meme for good measure.

Man Shares Photos Of Racist Trump Supporter’s Car, And Twitter Exploded

They say you can tell a lot about a person by their car. We don’t know who owns or drives the car that Krang T. Nelson (seriously, Twitter, never change, these name puns are amazing…) parked next to, but the Twitterverse has collectively decided they’re the absolute worst. 

Things started with Twitter user @KrangTNelson posting this tweet.

For those having trouble seeing, we’ll go image by image. 

First up, this person has a noose hanging from their rear-view mirror.

This is the most troubling image of the three, given the recent unfortunate resurgence of the noose as a symbol of racial intimidation among white supremacists.

Next, there’s a sticker depicting Trump attacking Obama.

Wrapping up the trifecta of terrible, we have aNickelbackCD.

Twitter exploded with responses.

Intellectually based and factually correct snark is the very best kind of snark. Very high quality.

Took the words out of our mouth.

One user had a not-so-subtle suggestion for Krang.

Succinct and to the point.

@Damons had a different perspective than most.

Northeast really just wants everyone to be happy.

Is this a thing? Please let this be a thing.

Saint Krang DOES have a nice ring to it.
