A road rage incident that devolved into a white woman hurling racist abuse at black drivers has cost the woman her job, reports KRON.
The confrontation, captured on video that went viral, ended in the woman calling the other driver the N-Word.
“It actually made me upset. If anyone has seen the video, I was kind of shocked that she went along and said that,” said Marshaunte Farris, who recorded the video.
It didn’t take long for the viral video to lead to the discovery of the woman’s identity. She was an employee at a finance company, and her employer told KRON they’re parting ways.
“The behavior reflected in the video is completely inconsistent with our values and the individual involved is no longer employed by the firm,” they told KRON in a statement.
But the victims of the hate-filled tirade don’t get much satisfaction from her sacking.
“You know, I gain nothing from her losing her job. I just wanted to post the video, hoping that it would go viral so we could make an example that this is not okay to treat people like that… she could have killed us,” said Farris.
