Meteorologist Mandy Bailey has been fired from Oklahoma’s KWSO 7News because of a brain teaser puzzle she did Monday morning during the news.
Bailey was fired after doing a brain teaser that someone found offensive.
KWSO 7News announced Bailey’s dismissal on their Facebook page, saying she had been “terminated immediately”.
The station wrote:
From KSWO management: On Monday morning, one of our employees at KSWO-TV displayed an image that was offensive and unacceptable. At KSWO, we do not tolerate behavior of any kind that depicts hatred, social injustice, racism or anti-Semitism. The employee responsible was terminated immediately. On behalf of all of the employees at KSWO, we offer you our sincere, heart-felt apology with a promise that we will continue to work tirelessly to earn your trust every day.
Many commenters are upset by the firing. One comment from a local business owner, reads: “I am pulling my advertising.”
Another person added: “Everyone saying bring Mandy back. Yeah, KSWO7News did her wrong, but at this point why would she wanna come back to work for them? They just proved they wont support an employee. Who would want to work for an employer like that.”
