|A man, identified as John Pisone, goes on racist rant|
According to Butler News, a man identified as John Pisone took time out of his day to go on a racist rant during a peaceful protester of a fracking operation in Pennsylvania.
Pisone, who apparently worked for MMC Land Management - a company subcontracted by Rex Energy - was fired after video of his rant went viral.
Via Raw Story:
In a video posted to YouTube on Monday by photojournalist Tom Jefferson, a man wearing work clothes and a camouflage hat is seen approaching anti-fracking activists who are protesting Rex Energy’s drilling operation in the Mars Area School District.
“Have you actually done something with your life, have you had any kind of a job?” the man asks one of the older activists, who laughs in his face.
“Just like this chimp right here,” the man continues, motioning at the camera.
“What did you say?” one of the activists asks.
“Yeah, chimp,” the man replies. “A f*cking n****r right here with a mop on his head. I don’t give a f*ck. He’s milking my f*cking tax dollars.”
Although the man was initially identified by some as an employee of Rex Energy, a statement later revealed that he had worked for MMC Land Management.
“Today, we were disgusted to learn that one of MMC’s former employees used racial slurs and made racially charged comments during a peaceful protest in Mars, Pennsylvania, outside of work hours at a location with which we have no affiliation,” the statement posted to Facebook late on Tuesday explained. “We are sorry that this incident occurred. Whether at work or not, we do not condone hate speech – EVER.”
“MMC has terminated this employee and will never do business with him again in the future.”
