CBS Executive Fired After Saying No Sympathy for Victims in Las Vegas

She’s a Columbia University Law School alumna:

CBS fired a legal executive Monday after she wrote on Facebook that she was not “sympathetic” to the victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas.
“I’m actually not even sympathetic [because] country music fans often are Republican gun toters,” former executive Hayley Geftman-Gold wrote.
At least 59 people were killed and more than 520 were injured after a gunman opened fire at a country music festival in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
“This individual, who was with us for approximately one year, violated the standards of our company and is no longer an employee of CBS,” the network said in a statement Monday.
“Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to all of us at CBS. Our hearts go out to the victims in Las Vegas and their families,” the network wrote.

The Daily Caller broke the story of Geftman-Gold’s comments.

Meanwhile, we still do not know the motive of the Las Vegas shooter, Stephen Paddock. It is known that Paddock was a gambler who had “made several large gambling transactions in recent weeks”:

On several occasions, Stephen Paddock gambled more than $10,000 per day — and in some cases more than than $20,000 and $30,000 a day — at Las Vegas casinos, according to an NBC News source who read the suspect’s Multiple Currency Transaction Reports (CTR) and a casino gaming executive.

Although there is an army of Internet sleuths trying to find clues to Paddock’s motive, I have seen nothing definitive so far. Of course, this hasn’t stopped idiots from speculating and expressing stupid opinions.

If you don’t know who Charles Clymer is, search the Twitter hashtag #StopClymer. About three years ago, Clymer emerged as a leading “male feminist,” but it turned out he was just another abusive “progressive” a–hole. So then he announced he was “genderqueer” and demanded to be addressed with the pronouns “they/them.” That this selfish creep decided to exploit a tragedy for politics isn’t really surprising.
