An Alabama police officer was fired this week after he made two Facebook posts against Michelle Obama that some say was racist.
Mediaite reported that Officer Joel Husk first posted a black and white photograph of bodies strewn across a battlefield along with the caption,“Over 620,000 white people died to free black slaves and still to this day not even 1 thank you.”
The second post showed photos of Melania Trump with the caption “Fluent in Slovenian, English, French, Serbian and German,” and then images of first lady Michelle Obama with the caption, “Fluent In Ghetto.”
Talladega City Manager Patrick Bryant said Husk was fired because he violated the city’s code of conduct policy.
“We will not tolerate that kind of conduct by any employees. We take very seriously our responsibility to treat everyone equally and equitably. We have to make sure we take steps for the community to trust us,” Bryant said.
