A suburban Chicago zoo said it has “taken prompt action” after allegations that a zoo employee posted a racist comment about serving “rude a– white people” to social media while working at the facility.
A photo posted Monday shows an employee wearing a Brookfield Zoo uniform with a caption reading “at work serving these rude a– white people.” The photo tagged Brookfield Zoo and almost immediately sparked outrage from some customers.
“Yesterday, we became aware of the actions of a single employee which we agree are unacceptable,” the Chicago Zoological Society said in a statement. “This employee’s statements in social media are in violation of our policies and do not reflect our institution’s values.
“We have zero tolerance for these kinds of divisive behaviors,” the statement continued. “We treat all employment matters confidentially, but rest assured that we have taken prompt action to remedy the situation.
Not only did this twit tag her employer but even if she didn’t she was clearly wearing a uniform OF her employer so eventually someone probably would have seen her racist post.
Of course, she probably thinks she was fired due to ‘white privilege’ or something. And she also probably thinks black people can’t possibly be racist.
And how dare anyone hold her to respectable standards?
