Journalist Fired After Calling for Covington Teens and Parents to Be Killed
Writer fired from his role are INE Entertainment after making threats
Joining the long list of leftists who made violent threats to a group of Catholic high school students who were unjustly targeted as 'harassers' to a Native American protester, one media outlet has now fired one of its journalist for a similar contribution.
A writer for Vulture has been fired from his role are INE Entertainment after calling for the deaths of r the Covington Catholic students and their parents “to die.”
The journalist joins the likes of Kathy Griffin and Reza Aslan, and multiple blue tick 'leftists' brigades, who made threats against the MAGA hat kids.
“I don’t know what it says about me, but I’ve truly lost the ability to articulate the hysterical rage, nausea, and heartache this makes me feel.
"I just want these people to die. Simple as that. Every single one of them. And their parents,” Erik Abriss Tweeted on Saturday.
“'Racism is in its Boomer death throes. It will die out with this younger generation!’ Look at the shit-eating grins on all those young white slugs’ faces."
"Just perverse pleasure at wielding a false dominion they’ve been taught their whole life was their divine right. F–ing die,” he added in a follow-up tweet.
Abriss, who was a post-production supervisor for INE Entertainment, was fired after the Tweets went viral, according to TheWrap.
“We were surprised and upset to see the inflammatory and offensive rhetoric used on Erik Abriss’ Twitter account this weekend. He worked with the company in our post-production department and never as a writer,” the company said in a statement to TheWrap.
“While we appreciated his work, it is clear that he is no longer aligned with our company’s core values of respect and tolerance. Therefore, as of January 21, 2019, we have severed ties with Abriss,” the company concluded.
Abriss, who failed to respond for comment from TheWrap, has since made his Twitter account to private.
Despite his Tweets going viral and being written about, the journalist doubled down calling the Covington Catholic students “MAGA chuds” and “racist.”
Nick Sandmann, who was at the center of the media circus, has now become a figure of hate overnight for leftists.
Regardless of the media narrative, which has been debunked not just by Sandmann's statement but also by different camera angles, the left is continuing on their tirade of abuse.
Sandmann, who is a junior at Covington Catholic High School, said Native American elder Nathan Phillips approached him:
“it was clear to me that he had singled me out for a confrontation, although I am not sure why.”
In the statement, Sandmann raised several points that seem to validate various videos and reports that debunked first viral videos by left-leaning outlets.
The media narrative was that group of students were “mocking” Phillips, but in addition to the statement and videos, that doesn't seem to be the case.
The teens are believed to be getting lawyers in involved, as PJ Media reports: Los Angeles-based trial lawyer Robert Barnes offered to represent the Covington families for free should they decide to sue the New York Times.
According to Barne's website, he has a history of taking on the causes of underdogs:
"Fighting for individuals against unethical law firms, corrupt banks, and rogue government agents, Barnes continues the family tradition his great-grandfathers started centuries ago, fighting for the freedoms that founded America."
