Sports Journo FIRED After Calling Republican Tim Scott “Uncle Tom”

( A sports journalist from News 12 Connecticut was fired on Wednesday after he racially abused Republican Senator Tim Scott. Fred Gerteiny referred to the Black Republican senator for South Carolina as an “Uncle Tom” in a Tweet that has since been deleted.

Gerteiny, who is white, responded to a Tweet by The Hill, which referenced Scott’s comments about how President Donald Trump referred to the Proud Boys during the first debate between him and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Referring to Trump’s “stand back and stand by” comment, Scott said the president “misspoke” and should clarify it.

In response, Gerteiny said, “Thanks Uncle Tom.”

The Tweet might have been deleted, but Washington Examiner reported Siraj Hashmi screenshotted the exchange.
