Goes to show, people should think before they post nasty, hateful s**t on the internet, especially with their employer visible on their profile, actions have consequences, and many places of employment have social media policies, so good luck explaining to your employer why you shouldn't be sacked for posting racist bulls**t on the internet. It's not about your justification, it's about how your comments are reciprocated, just like any other bullying policy your company has.

I know my employer, one of Australia's major airlines, would definitely haul me into the managers office if I ever did something like this and racially vilified professional sportsperson on the internet, especially since my company is involved in some well known social justice campaigns.

No, he also said something crook and deserves what he gets

And his employer (*cough*RebelSport) is visible on his Facebook profile too
If he doesn't get the sack there is something wrong, and I'll never shop in that chain ever again if they don't, not that I do anyway.

I'd rather people think about why they hold such obviously wrong views, and figure out that they should not hold them. Those who are motivated primarily, or only, by fear of reprisal are bound to uphold the bigot's proud tradition of cowardice and crocodile tears.

How thoroughly unremarkable do you have to be to tie your entire sense of self and worth to your ethno-cultural identity, and how small-minded do you have to be to express that exclusively through the denigration of others?

Suns supporter also did a 'laughing reaction' (the only one) on the banana emoji post too, off memory.
