Covington Catholic High School students were hit with a barrage of death threats and calls for violence after the now-infamous interaction with a Native American protester during the March for Life.
One journalist took it to the extreme and actually wished death upon not just the kids, but their parents too.
“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.
He added: “'Racism is in its Boomer death throes. It will die out with this younger generation!’ Look at the s**t-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.”
While, many times, these kinds of far-left threats go unpunished, Abriss’s employer took swift action.
INE Entertainment fired Abriss immediately after seeing the disgusting tweets.
In a statement provided to The Wrap, the company said, “We were surprised and upset to see the inflammatory and offensive rhetoric used on Erik Abriss’ Twitter account this weekend.”
The statement added: “He worked with the company in our post-production department and never as a writer. 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 March for Life incident was initially reported as if the students surrounded and harassed Native American protester Nathan Phillips. However, when the full video of the interaction emerged, it become clear that Phillips intentionally put himself in the middle of the crowd of students.
Still, the media attacks have continued even after the truth emerged.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has reportedly invited the students to the White House amid the smoldering controversy.
