A top Vice President lawyer was just fired after here remarks stirred a lot of controversy following last nights terror attack in Las Vegas.
Hayley Geftman-Gold said the following in a post on Facebook about the event.
I am “not even sympathetic” to victims of the Las Vegas shooting because “country music fans often are Republican gun toters”.
Brandon Moorse from RedState shared the screenshot just before it was deleted and the comments said everything about the response to her statement.
Geftman-Gold released the following statement of apology after she was fired for the comments.
“Earlier today I posted an indefensible post in a Facebook discussion thread concerning the tragic Las Vegas shooting, a statement I sincerely regret. I am deeply sorry for diminishing the significance of every life affected by Stephen Paddock’s terrorism last night and for the pain my words have inflicted on the loved ones of the victims. My shameful comments do not reflect the beliefs of my former employer, colleagues, family, and friends. Nor do they reflect my actual beliefs — this senseless violence warrants the deepest empathy. I understand and accept all consequences that my words have incurred.”
It’s too late for an apology for this awful comment. She should directly apologize to the families who lost loved ones in this tragedy, not to the media.
