Racist Gets Fired For ‘White People Don’t Like You’ Message To #BlackLivesMatter (IMAGE/TWEETS)

A racist troll living in Minnesota recently lost his job and only has himself to thank after a profanity-laced message he left on a #BlackLivesMatter Facebook group page was brought to the attention of his employers.

Brad Schultz, a now-former employee at agricultural processing company Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), left the comment on the #BlackLivesMatter group’s page in response to a massive protest at the Mall of America last week. Expressing his annoyance at the event, Schultz unleashed his white privilege and went on a short, racist rant on Christmas Eve:

After using racial slurs and stating that black people who didn’t comply with police deserved to get shot and killed, Schultz told protesters to “get a job” and move on, because “white people don’t like you.”



The post gained attention immediately, and soon another Facebook group called Threatwatch got involved. Threatwatch describes its purpose as “holding hate accountable,” and went right to work, taking screenshots from Schultz’s personal page and posting them. People also started circulating Schultz’s work number, with instructions to get in touch with his boss and tell ADM about the kind of person they were employing. This made Schultz change his tune instantly, and he apologized for his “rude” and “cruel” post and begged the group to remove his images.

Schultz’s apology came too late, though – his bigotry had already gone viral, and showed no signs of stopping. Soon his racism had gone international.



Word of Schultz’s comments eventually got back to his workplace, who tweeted their disapproval of the incident and assured the public that Schultz’s comments didn’t represent ADM’s values. ADM also stated that the racist was no longer an employee at the company:

On Tuesday, Minneapolis NAACP President Nekima Levy-Pounds posted a message on Facebook that said, “hopefully, individuals will learn from Brad Schultz’s mistake and think twice before making racist statements on social media.”

Currently, Schultz’s Facebook page can no longer be accessed by the public.
