Multiple Firings After Racially Charged Facebook Remarks Mocking a Black Child Go Viral
On September 16, Gerod Roth whose profile name is Geris Hilton, publicly posted a captionless selfie to Facebook with a small black child behind him..
The post would sadly go viral after attracting many racially charged comments by Hilton’s friends.. That post would also get Roth fired from his day job..
The child was one of Hilton’s coworkers at Polaris Marketing Group. Regardless of how adorable the child is, Hilton’s friends continued to post bigoted and racist comments about him.
Its crazy that a person who works for a marketing firm, thought this would be a good idea. He knew him and his friends were racist, and the reaction this picture would get. He is probably somewhere blaming this on some one else. He is lucky the childs mother didn't hurt him.
