The Bank of America has been sacked after a racist rant she posted on Facebook gained traction on social media.

Christine Mcmullen Lindgren is today unemployed after the bank worked fast to distance itself from a racist rant about African Americans.

Directly below her post, one commenter noted that she was a personal banker at the Bank of America, and was likely one of the many people who contributed to the sacking.

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Lindgren said African Americans: ”Don't work, collect welfare and teach hatred.”

The company called the comments reprehensible hours after they were posted.
