CBS has parted ways with one of the organization’s top attorneys after she said she is “not even sympathetic” to victims of the Las Vegas shooting due to the fact “country music lovers often are Republican,” when discussing the tragic mass shooting that took place in Las Vegas late Sunday night.
“This individual, who was with us for about 12 months, violated the standards of our organisation and is no longer an employee of CBS. Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to anyone at CBS. Our hearts exit to the victims in Las Vegas and their families,” a CBS spokeswoman advised Fox news.
Hayley Geftman-Gold, the network's now-former vice chairman and senior counsel, took to facebook after a gunman opened fire at the route ninety one Harvest music festival in Las Vegas, killing at the least fifty eight people and sending more than 520 others to hospitals.
“If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs [sic] will ever do the right thing,” Geftman-Gold wrote in a now-deleted message that was first reported and captured by The Daily Caller.
Geftman-Gold continued: “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc [sic] country music fans often are Republican gun toters [sic].”
Geftman-Gold is presumably referring to Sandy Hook, which occurred in Newtown, Conn. back in 2012. A 20-year-old gunman, Adam Lanza, killed 20 kids and 6 adults during the tragic occasion that sparked extreme political debates concerning gun control.
Geftman-Gold did now not work directly with the network’s news department. in line with her LinkedIn bio, Geftman-Gold worked at CBS since September 2016 and graduated from the distinguished Columbia college law school in 2000.
