“And another 4 years of the n*****. Maybe he will get assassinated this term..!!” Denise Helms wrote on her Facebook page on Tuesday, right after President Obama was announced as the winner of the US 2012 election. The post was later deleted, but was circulated in Facebook and Twitter and earned criticisms.
“I didn’t think it would be that big of a deal. The assassination part is kind of harsh. I’m not saying I’d go do that or anything like that, by any means, but if it was to happen I don’t think I’d care one bit.” Helms, who have worked for Cold Stone Creamery for less than a year, told FOX40 on Thursday, but she did not apologized.
“Well, it’s not something I would dwell on. It’s not something I would be upset about,” Helms, 22, said, when she was asked if something bad would happen to President Obama, adding that she does not consider herself a racist.
Meanwhile, Cold Stone Creamery has already announced that Denise Helms was removed from her job. “The employee is no longer w/the company. We were as shocked as you were by her outrageous & completely unacceptable comments.” Cold Stone Creamery (@ColdStone) tweeted this Thursday.
