‘Inappropriate Comments’: TV Executive Fired Over ‘Racially Charged Language’

Posted on | July 19, 2018 | Comments Off on ‘Inappropriate Comments’: TV Executive Fired Over ‘Racially Charged Language’

At age 41, Amy Powell seemed to be on her way to becoming one of the most powerful women in Hollywood as head of Paramount Television, but her career just got derailed by political correctness:

Five years after being tapped to lead the newly relaunched Paramount Television banner, Amy Powell is out.
The news was announced Thursday via an internal memo from Paramount CEO Jim Gianopulos in which he outlined “multiple individuals” who raised “concerns around comments” made by the executive in a “professional setting, which they believed were inconsistent” with Viacom’s values. According to sources, the comments included racially charged language.
“Having spent the past several days conducting a thorough investigation into this matter and speaking to those who were present, our Human Resources and Legal teams came to the same conclusion, and we have made the decision to terminate Amy’s employment, effective immediately,” Gianopulos wrote. . . .
Powell’s firing comes nearly a month after Netflix PR chief Jonathan Friedland was dismissed after repeated uses of the n-word at company functions.

“Social justice is a surveillance culture, a snitch culture.”
