A distempered liberal “journalist” who tweeted out his wish that the Covington Catholic kids and their parents would be murdered has been fired from his job.
Until today, Erik Abriss worked for a digital company named INE Entertainment. But after his hate-filled tweet wishing for violence on people whom he opposes went viral, his employers decided to distance themselves from their their former employee.
Abriss, who also writes for the pop culture website Vulture, went on the attack on Saturday.
“I don’t know what it says about me but I’ve truly lost the ability to articulate the hysterical rage, nausea, and heartache this makes me feel,” Abriss tweeted… then deleted. “I just want these people to die. Simple as that. Every single one of them. And their parents.”
(His tweet is archived here.)
That was not the only tweet Abriss made on the incident.
“Look at the shit-eating grins on all those young white slugs’ faces. Just perverse pleasure at wielding a false dominion they’ve been taught their whole life was their divine right. F**king die,” Abriss tweeted afterward.
That was all quite enough for INE Entertainment which moved to cut ties with Abriss.
“We were surprised and upset to see the inflammatory and offensive rhetoric used on Erik Abriss’ Twitter account this weekend. He worked with the company in our post-production department and never as a writer,” the company told TheWrap.
“While we appreciated his work,” the company added, “it is clear that he is no longer aligned with our company’s core values of respect and tolerance. Therefore, as of January 21, 2019, we have severed ties with Abriss.”
Vulture.com has yet to reply to the incident.
That’s one down. But literally hundreds of other hate-filled, violent liberals should also lose their jobs over this, too.
