Radio host Amber Athey fired from radio station for mocking VC Kamala Harris’ outfit

Amber Athey, the Washington editor of The Spectator magazine, was fired from her co-hosting job at WMAL-FM over a tweet she posted last month joking about Vice President Kamala Harris’ clothing.

On Monday, Athey declared on Twitter that she was fired from “O’Connor & Company” for making a “racist” remark about Kamala Harris’s SOTU dress, not because she was “sick or on vacation.”

‘Kamala looks like a UPS employee — what can brown do for you? Nothing good, apparently,’ Athey wrote in the March 1 tweet, referring to an old UPS tagline.

During the State of the Union address about a month ago today, She sent out a tweet mocking Vice President Kamala Harris’s wardrobe.

“Harris wore a chocolate brown work suit that was mocked on social media, with some comparing her to a Hershey’s chocolate bar and others wondering why she matched her chair’s hue.” She choose a UPS joke based on the company’s now-defunct slogan:

She claimed that it wasn’t until a few days later that she realized the snide remark had offended anyone.

At the University of North Texas, She spoke out against protests in support of ‘trans kids.’ She was pursued by a horde of crazed left-wing extremists who want to chemically castrate infants in the name of “gender affirmation.”

The Kamala tweet was suddenly reframed as racist, and dozens of Twitter accounts boasted about contacting my employers about my “bigotry,” Athey explained in a column for the publication.

Emails were also sent to Athey’s bosses at the radio station and the magazine, urging that she be dismissed.

‘They told me that the tweet I sent about Kamala was ‘racist’ and that subsequent follow-ups defending myself and making fun of the efforts to cancel me were unacceptable. I had violated the company’s social media policy, they said, and I was terminated effective immediately,” Athey wrote.
