The maelstrom around the Kentucky high school students who were falsely accused of surrounding an elder Native American and mocking and harassing him is still churning. Most of those who have called for physical violence against the kids and their families will not have to answer for it at all. But one media outlet with a little integrity left did.
INE Entertainment fired one of their journalists who contributed to Vulture and publicly called for the Covington Catholic students and their parents “to die.”
“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 stated adamantly in a tweet.
“’Racism is in its Boomer death throes. It will die out with this younger generation!’ Look at the shit-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,” he also tweeted out.
Abriss was a post-production supervisor at INE Entertainment. TheWrap was the first to report that he had been terminated.
“We were surprised and upset to see the inflammatory and offensive rhetoric used on Erik Abriss’ Twitter account this weekend. He worked with the company in our post-production department and never as a writer,” the company sent out in a statement to TheWrap.
“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 company added. Good for them. It’s a pity more aren’t doing this especially as it has come to light these boys are not guilty of charges that are being leveled at them.
Abriss would not answer questions from TheWrap and has set his Twitter account to private. Even after he was called on the carpet for his lies and viciousness he continued to attack the Covington Catholic students, calling them “MAGA chuds” and “racist.”
The fact of the matter was these boys were the ones accosted by Nathan Phillips. He’s done this to other students previously. He’s also not really a Vietnam veteran as was being claimed. A group of Black Hebrew Israelites who shouted racial and anti-gay slurs at the teenagers is not being held accountable either here. The Native Americans then approached the group of students and marched up to them, while Nathan Phillips banged his drum in the face of one of the teens.
Some of the boys were wearing MAGA hats and the media and the left are portraying them as Trump supporters while blaming the president for the incident. These kids and their families have received death threats and further threats of physical violence. It was so bad today their school told everyone to stay home over security concerns.
Attorneys are lining up to help these students file lawsuits against media outlets and others who are spreading these lies. That would include The New York Times, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and comedienne Kathy Griffin. Hopefully, Alyssa Milano is on that list for calling for the doxxing of these boys and their families.
Attorneys are collecting examples of libel on Twitter to build cases here. It’s almost a certainty that Abriss is on the shortlist for legal action. He’s earned it.
