Netflix fires communications chief for using racial slur

I would love to know the story behind this. It almost sounds like he was using ****ar in the context of how not to use it and they fired him.

Quote:
Netflix fired top communications executive Jonathan Friedland on Friday after he used a racial slur on multiple occasions during meetings with company employees.

In a memo to staffers obtained by the Hollywood Reporter, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said Friedland used the N-word “several months ago” during a meeting with the company’s public relations team about sensitive words. Within days, Friedland purportedly used the word again while discussing the previous incident with human resources employees.

Some of the company employees who witnessed Friedland use the racial slurs reported the incident, Hastings said. Friedland joined the company in 2011 and had served as the streaming giant’s chief communications officer since 2012.

“I’ve made a decision to let go of Jonathan Friedland,” Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said in a memo to employees obtained by the Hollywood Reporter. “Jonathan contributed greatly in many areas, but his descriptive use of the N-word on at least two occasions at work showed unacceptably low racial awareness and sensitivity, and is not in line with our values as a company.”

Maybe it would help race relations if we could all use it in text if we replaced the g's with the same symbol used for a spade in a deck of cards?

Anything, no matter how crazy, is worth a try in the pursuit of harmony.

Anything short of a lynching of this insensitive bastard is just letting him off the hook.

I wouldn't repeat it. It's a 6-letter word.

Agreed. My guess he was not liberal enough.

So he said the word ****er at a meeting about insensitive words, then repeated it to human resources to explain what he was saying?

The world has become full of people softer than soggy bread.

Context matters. It doesn't sound like there was anything remotely malicious about his use of the word. These are the same idiots who would claim huck Finn is a racist book. Assuming that's all there is to the story. PC police overreaction.

Phillip Mudd said the forbidden slur TWICE on CNN with Don Lemon

...And yet no one cared. You can pretty much worship satan, smoke crack, and say racial slurs as long as you can give your Two Minutes of Hate towards Trump. Incredible.
