Nordstrom Fires Employee For Anti-Police Facebook Remarks
USA Today reports high-end retail merchandiser Nordstrom fired a Portland employee because he posted controversial statements on his personal Facebook page. Due to the rampant police brutality affecting Black men, the employee, Aaron Hodges who served as a sales associate shared on social media:
“Instead of slamming the police, I prefer a Kenny Fort approach. Every time an unarmed black man is killed, you kill a decorated white officer, on his door step in front of his family.”
Hodges who has since deleted his social media profiles on Facebook and Twitter, worked at the Nordstrom in downtown Portland, OR. He noted on his social media profile that he worked for the corporation and had pictures of himself at work. Because of this and his profile’s privacy settings, former NYPD police officer and The Blaze commentator John Cardillo was able to tweet a picture of Hodge’s Facebook Page to Nordstrom’s Twitter handle.
Other Nordstrom clientele tweeted to the retail corporation, hoping Hodges would be fired for posting a violent remark.
Earlier today, Nordstrom shared with their followers that Hodges is no longer an employee at Nordstrom.
Below is a news report of this case. Do you think Hodges should have been fired?
