CBS Vice President Hayley Geftman-Gold was FIRED for her demeaning Facebook post aimed at victims of today’s Las Vegas shooting massacre. Geftman-Gold posted on her Facebook page that she had no sympathy for the victims, who were attending a country music festival Sunday on the Las Vegas Strip.
“If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs [sic] will ever do the right thing,” wrote Geftman-Gold, vice president and senior counsel of strategic transactions. “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”
The Facebook page appears to have been deleted. CBS Corp. moved swiftly against Hayley Geftman-Gold. “This individual, who was with us for approximately one year, violated the standards of our company and is no longer an employee of CBS,” stated the network. “Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to all of us at CBS. Our hearts go out to the victims in Las Vegas and their families.”
