Bank Of America employee sacked just hours after racist Facebook rant
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.
We are aware of an unacceptable post on Facebook. The comments are reprehensible. We have terminated the employment of the individual.
