"You'll see the picture of k. A. tv anchor chris. May i don't know if that's the anchorman. Or the meteorologist berry brent. Both of them suspended indefinitely. The news anchor. I mean the news director fired. Because african american activist doctor a nica whitfield heard about the stunt the return to the seventy s and fired off a complaint to w atv in which she wrote that the stunt was perpetuation of systemic racism to have a european american man wearing afro ray wig. Now she didn't get an answer so then she reached out to john. Seeber's who's a sinclair broadcast group. Vp and group manager in charge of stations. Arkansas texas and oklahoma. He immediately issued the following apology. We apologize to all viewers who were rightfully offended by the segment. And we promise to enact and enforce new new measures to prevent future incidents from occurring. What are you going to clear out the whig closet. Don't let anybody wearing more wigs. How you gonna. What are you gonna do what proactive steps. You gonna take to keep your your weatherman and your anchor for put not a big curly wig and of course lert reading the comments section of this article. There's a big debate about whether it's really an afro wig or just a big frizzy curly-haired wag because a lot of people in the seventies had big frizzy curly hair. I don't know k. a. k. Atv is taking this very seriously. They have promised to implement further training for sensitivity and workplace. Conduct sinclair has indefinitely. Suspended the anchorman and weatherman. Who have worked at the at the tv station for more than twenty years and the news. Director nick genty. Who's the longtime news director. There fired the head honcho. There at sinclair sheba's he'd called the cultural appropriation is what is known as a horrid and juvenile and he was especially disappointed as the staff had undergone six weeks of racial sensitivity training prior to the segment. I guess the sensitivity training didn't cover wigs. Meanwhile dorothy tucker president of the national sociation of black journalists said that the episode followed another ugly incident in which a mammy doll was left in the keya k. atv newsroom to greet a new black anchor. Kate says we'll do further training. They're gonna have to have more sensitivity training now not everyone thought. The segment was insensitive. Writes the new york. Post one commenter on the arkansas times site wrote good grief as evidenced by all the comments. Here there were tens of thousands of white guys with ugly afros in the seventies. Another person tweeted another commenter said. I'm african american. I saw the weather report with the whigs. I didn't think too much about it. Everything is not racism. There were white man in the seventies who wore afros just like blacks. It's a shame someone had to lose their job over this. Listen here's the reality. And you and. I know this everybody knows it was a joke about the seventies and it was not intended to disparage black people. You think the tv newsman. That been there twenty years of the weather manner because let's disparage black people. Heck they were posted on their twitter accounts. Are there were joking about it. But people are terrified of the mob. You get on the wrong side of an activist and your career goes up in smoke. Creepy it really is. it's a it's a creepy process. People pretend to be offended this claire executive. You don't think he's mad about is that there's controversy. He doesn't think those guys were raised. Those guys were attacking black people. He's just trying to cover sinclair's but because of what might be going to get sued. I dunno people pretend to be offended and that others pretend to agree that something that is completely not offensive is offensive. Here's the new rule at the station. Kabc don't you dare have any fun. Don't have any fun whatsoever. No fun aloud here. You read the news. We don't want to offend. Dr a whitfield in case she might be watching. What eight hundred. Six five five. Mike i i hear this stuff and you see it happen. And you realize the mob gets emboldened by mob behavior. That's why people are harassed kirsten cinema. There's no consequences for this stuff. Because everybody's afraid of the mop..
