KSWO in Lawton is getting a lot of attention this week after firing one of their employees because of a brain teaser she did Monday morning during the news.
Mandy Bailey was a meteorologist over at KSWO. She was fired after doing a brain teaser that someone found offensive. The brain teaser was of the word THERE, with a noose hanging off the 'T'. If you think about it, the answer is 'Hang in There', since the noose is inside the word there. Someone called KSWO to complain about this.
I do not know if they found this insensitive to suicide or if they found it racist cause they interpreted the noose as lynching. Either way, KSWO agreed with that listener and fired Mandy for her brain teaser. Let me say my opinion on this, in no way do I believe Mandy did anything wrong. I don't think she meant anything by this brain teaser. She wasn't trying to be racist or make fun of being that commit suicide. I think it was a simple brain teaser that a viewer misinterpreted and saw something that wasn't there.
We are knot amused.
there is going to be a lot of this going around...
we will all just have to hang in there and hope it gets better...
years of government education have left the US with millions of people who cannot comprehend a simple sentence.
So, ONLY ONE VIEWER CALLED IN AND THEY FIRED HER?..................
I thought Idiocracy was a great movie.
I just hate living it.
hang in there?...................UH-OH, YOU’VE TRIGGERED ME!...............
That was a real burn, but we’ll get by asbestos we can.
No more playing word games like Hangman.
Especially if the secret word is Banana!
Dang me, dang me
They oughta take a rope and hang me
High from the highest tree
Woman won’t you weep for me
“hang in there?...................UH-OH, YOUVE TRIGGERED ME!...............”
The right to not be offended is not in the Bill of Rights. The Founders did not foresee this onslaught of pussies and snowflakes - they saw Americans.
That's all it takes.
Bloomingdale's pulled a "Fake News" T-shirt off their shelves after a single Tweet.
Ain't "Woke" fun?
“So, ONLY ONE VIEWER CALLED IN AND THEY FIRED HER?”
Probably was the understudy anchor waiting for the opportunity to take her place.
They couldn’t just give her a good talking -to and be done with it?
Oh the control they have been given
There should be a list of words that we are allowed to speak published.
But I supposed everybody is offended by something. Every time I hear the words: president obama, barack obama, michelle obama, Democrat, Democrat Party, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Maxine Waters, to Name a few, I am offended.
I could see if this was California, but in Oklahoma ? Geeze louise...
Im offended by people who are easily offended.
I think that whoever was offended by this should be fired for offending me.
