Houston journalist Scarlett Fakhar, has lost her job after she spoke her mind on Facebook after the election. She said that Obama has made the “entire country hate one another” and was glad Trump won. Does the first amendment mean anything anymore?
In a Facebook post that has since been deleted, Scarlett Fakhar, a Fox 26 Houston journalist, said “God had a hand” in the election and she could “barely sleep from how happy and relieved she was” after Trump’s election victory.
In place of the deleted post, Fakhar said: “Guess what fans!!?? FOX 26 Houston is trying to take my fan page down now! DON’T LET THEM! #FREEPRESS #FREESPEECH #FIRSTAMENDMENT”
A spokesman from the KRIV confirmed to a local US newspaper that the journalist was sacked, but declined to comment.
She wrote: “The media has made this a race issue, when in reality the matter boils down to a difference in political philosophy.
“As a multiracial person myself, I never have been or never will be racist.”
