Woman Loses Job After Telling Black Protester ‘White Lives Are Better’ During Racist Viral Tirade





A woman was caught on video making racist and homophobic remarks Saturday during a protest in Elizabethton, Tennessee, according to the Johnson City Press.

The woman, identified by the newspaper as Sonya Holt, is seen in the video yelling “white lives matter” and “white lives are better” and making homophobic remarks to protesters.



At one point in the video, Holt tells a Black woman that she is “just a poor little Black girl with a messed up mind.”

A spokesperson at the company where Holt was previously employed said she no longer works there as of Monday morning.

“[Holt’s] remarks were one of the most visual instances of verbal salvos hurled at Black Lives Matter protestors during Saturday’s demonstration, with several referring to protestors as ‘monkeys,’ and another man, seen on the same video as Holt, told protestors ‘we should have kept you (expletive) as slaves.’” the Johnson City Press reports.
