Surprise! Fox Exec Fired For Ignorant Racist Comments Against Black Employees

Published On March 28, 2017 | By patrice | The latest posts

FOX News has now taken the necessary steps to fire veteran controller Judy Slater after she’d allegedly been accused of racially profiling her African-American colleagues, according to reports from The Grio.

In one of the alleged instances, Slater asked a black employee if all three of her children had the same father.

In another, she’d called a black woman “sista” and openly made complaints about the way that the word was pronounced. She’d even wrote down words like “sister,” “mother,” and “father” and went as far as asking employees to say the words out loud.

There was also another unnecessary incident when Slater allegedly said goodnight to one of her co-workers and topped it off with a “hands up don’t shoot” gesture.

After so many complaints of her poor behavior it was finally brought to the attention of Kevin Lord, the executive Vice President of Human Resources at Fox.

Slater was then forced to go through an investigation.

“We take any complaint of this nature very seriously and took the appropriate action in investigating and firing Ms Slater within two weeks of this being brought to our attention,” according to a network spokesperson. “There is no place for abhorrent behavior like this at Fox News.”

The fired former exec began working for the network in 1998 after overseeing the company’s accounts, she was then promoted in 2006 to the Vice President of Controller.
