Justine Sacco is — er, was — the PR director of The Daily Beast‘s parent company. And, no, I didn’t miss the irony of her job title. She has apparently been relieved of her job responsibilities with the media outlet after her ill-advised tweet:
Phil Robertson, star of the hit show Duck Dynasty, was also recently suspended for comparing homosexuality to bestiality and saying that African-Americans were happier under the Jim Crow laws — Happy, happy, happy.
It hasn’t been confirmed that they are both represented by the same attorney, who specializes in representing people — like Justine and Phil — who are simply expressing their faith.
It is also unconfirmed that they are planning to use their wealth and new-found free time to collaborate on building the world’s largest Jim Crow memorial. An unidentified inside source says, “A Jim Crow memorial in every state” — that’s the vision. The source also says, “They both just want to make the world a better place.”
