Hopefully the station doesn't cave to the rage mob mentality of people who need to mind their own business.

I've been called worse by a coworker and I called one coworker a worse name, too.

We never went to the media to report on our spats.

Gorillas are handsome animals. No woman thinks an unattractive guy looks like a gorilla. And it wasn’t funny at all.

Incredibly stupid what she said, but to a majority of the country, or maybe just social media there is no better red meat than the opportunity to rage and demand the firing or destruction of ones life.
This post here is the perfect example of normalization and how easy it is to make the awful... normal.

I'm still going to stand by the graces of a somewhat better era and say that bigotry absolutely should cost you your job.

Jeezus.

An ever better question is this. Who in their right mind would say something so stupid, regardless of what might happen next?

I don't doubt that some women are more attracted to gorillas than men who are less than exceptionally attractive. So I guess the anchor was complimenting her unattractive co-anchor then.

Because everyone is amazed at how ignorant people can be. Really, there are no limits anymore.

She was probably just teasing her coworker. An even better question is this. Who in their right mind is so fragile and humorless?
