A Georgia man has been fired from the Sheriff’s department and another has resigned over disgusting messages they shared on Facebook about minorities and women. In those messages, Brant Gaither and Jeremy Owens joked about pulling over Black drivers for giggles.
“It’s supposed to rain tomorrow. Might not get too many niggs,” said Owens. “I hope we get a few but (expletive) if we don’t,” Gaither replied.
Their messages were exposed after another deputy was given Owens’ old computer. McIntosh County Sheriff Stephen D. Jessup said as soon as he learned of his deputies behavior, he got rid of them. “There was never any question of what I needed to do and I did it,” Jessup said. “I do not tolerate that in my department.”
While the messages have not been released in their entirety, according to the AJC, one of the exchanges poked fun at domestic violence against women, and another made an offensive joke about a black pregnancy test and fried chicken.
Gaither (pictured right) was fired, prompting Owens to resign the following day.
3 Shocking Truth’s About Angela Bassett: Favorite Screen Kiss, Oscars Controversy, Star She Would Shag!
Angela Bassett was a completely open book during her recent appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live and we LOVED every bit of it.
The beauty, who is currently pushing her new show, 9-1-1, opened up about a series of topics during the hit Bravo show, including her favorite onscreen kiss AND who she would marry, shag or kill between Forest Whitaker, Sterling K. Brown and Daniel Kaluuya.
Here are three shocking confessions you never knew about the Black Panther star.
Best Kiss: When asked to rate her kiss with Lady Gaga, Bassett admitted that she remembered it “fondly” and that she had “good memories.” She then followed up by unveiling that some of her best onscreen kisses include Rick Fox and Taye Diggs.
Oscars Controversy: HipHollywood recently caught up with Bassett’s husband, Cortney B. Vance, who said his wife should have received an Oscar for What’s Love Got To Do With It. So when a fan said they felt she was robbed of the coveted Hollywood award, she said responded: “Yeah, me too.”
Marry, Shag, Kill: Although just a game, Angela was asked to choose who she’d marry, shag or kill between Forest Whitaker, Sterling K. Brown and Daniel Kaluuya. Whelp, she didn’t have the heart to kill any of them, so she agreed to tie the knot with Whitaker and Brown. Angela then suggested she’d shag Daniel because he’s “wild.”
And we’d be remised if we didn’t include who she thinks is more of a “sex kitten in the bedroom” between Michael B. Jordan and Chadwick Boseman. Her answer: Michael B.
