Chris Rincon, a former car wash worker in Houston, was fired from his job after racially disparaging comments he made about the First Family on Facebook found their way onto a Tumblr page dedicated to making people who publish racist remarks online lose their jobs.
Users on the Racists Getting Fired (and Getting Racists Fired!) blog post screenshots and photos of people who make racist comments online along with contact information for that person's place of work.
Readers are then encouraged to repeatedly contact the person's place of work and urge their employer to fire them, but discouraged from harassing the individual and their family.
That's what happened to Rincon, who posted a fake story to his Facebook page in December about Malia Obama getting pregnant and proceeding to use racial epithets to describe her and her family after commenters told him the story was fake.
"We just like talking shit about the (racial expletive)," Rincon posted.
When called out for using the racial slur to describe the First Family, Rincon defended himself by saying the said slur was not an expletive.
"Also, I'm a red neck so please no the tallest tree in my yard loves obama (sic)," Rincon said in a comment.
Rincon, whose cover photo on his Facebook page showed an assault rifle and the words "Come and Take It" emblazoned on a Confederate flag — was later fired after the blog post was published.
Rincon told BBC that he did not deny using the word, but was really bothered by the situation "because I'm not the only person who has views in this aspect."
"It made me lose my job," Rincon said. "I have a three-year-old kid that I'm trying to support ... They're basing (their views of) a person off of one post instead of actually knowing the person."
