Regions Bank Senior VP Labeled “Racist of the Week” After Offensive Comment On Obama
June Pridmore, whose deleted LinkedIn profile stated her position as Regions Bank's senior vice president of loan operations, has lost her job after making racist and derogatory comments about President Barrack Obama and his family.
In a Facebook post which caught the attention of the netizens, she tagged the president as "socialist Muslim O'bama." She even threw an insult on the first lady by calling her an "ugly and embarrassing woman" compared to President-elect Donald Trump's "beautiful wife."
She went on by saying, "Ms. Trump's face would make Michele (sic) O'Bama (sic) a Sunday face."
In a long and mostly misspelled rant, she criticized and accused the Obamas of flying their dog to vacations on a separate plane. She also made a malicious comment of the family possibly inviting the relatives to live with them, with the burden of the expenses falling on the taxpayers.
The first lady's mother, Marian Robinson, moved into the White House to help take care of the presidential couple's daughters.
Pridmore, who took pride on Trump's victory, said, "I prefer a man who can buy Michele (sic) and Barack and sell them several times over."
Regions Bank, which is the nation's 18th largest bank, took notice of the widely-shared Facebook post and assured the people that they will launch an investigation regarding the matter and take appropriate actions.
"Those comments do not reflect our values as a company or the way we do business, and the associate has no role in approving or denying loans," the bank clarified through a post on the bank's Facebook page.
Later that day, the bank revealed their response by posting that Pridmore is no longer associated with the company.
Her Facebook page has also been deleted after her post outraged social media and cost her position from a prestigious bank.
