Sprint gives black woman’s phone number to racist harasser who sends her violent threats

Sprint accidentally gave a black woman’s phone number to a racist harasser who sent her violent threats, reports the Kansas City Star.

Almitra Buzan and her husband, Robert, had visited a Sprint store in Lee’s Summit, Missouri because the wifi wasn’t working properly.

After the couple left, a white man who workers described as “unsavory” came to have a specific number applied to his phone.

The store’s technician accidentally gave Almitra Buzan’s phone number to the man.

The man responded by sending a torrent of violent racist threats.

“Tell Rob I said to suck a dead N*gger’s d*ck,” read one message.

“Well f*ck that little c*nt Jenni I’ll make sure I whoop her little a** real good ok granny? Will that make you feel better?” read another.

Even more disturbing for Buzan was the fact that the violent racist threats were appearing to come from her phone.

“How’s this coming from my phone? My phone’s in my hand,” she told a local TV station.

In response, a customer support representative offered them a credit for the three hours Almitra’s phone was out of service because the man had her number. A supervisor didn’t even say they were sorry, she said. Ultimately, they received a “best and final offer” of a $532 credit.

Spring has not said what they have done to the man who sent the harassing texts or discussed what precautions were taken to protect the information he may have been able to get off her phone.

Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.

Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."

"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.

"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.

She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."

Jimmy Carter hospitalized due to complications from his recent falls: report

Published

on

On Monday evening, former President Jimmy Carter was admitted to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.

Carter, aged 95, is reportedly being treated for pressure on his brain due to bleeding — a complication from recent falls. His condition is currently unknown.

Carter, who served as president from 1977 to 1981, has placed a strong emphasis on humanitarian work in his years after leaving office, in many cases going to physically build homes with Habitat for Humanity despite his advanced age. He has suffered numerous health issues in later years, including surviving cancer, and often allows himself little time for recovery from these episodes before returning to his postpresidency works.
