Drama over at Essence Magazine and Facebook takes another victim! The white guy who happened to be the managing editor of Essence, the leading magazine for black women, was fired after the content on his Facebook was brought to the magazine’s attention.
You may remember, the hiring of Michael Bullerdick was already a controversial move, being a white man in charge of a black woman’s magazine. But the drama escalated when he posted some right wing political message on his social media page.
A reader took screen shots of his Facebook page (seen below), which read on April 10: “No Voter Fraud, Mr. Attorney General?” touting a video by James O’Keefe, the conservative activist who worked with right-wing trickster Andrew Breitbart.
The same day, Bullerdick shared a photo illustration, seen above, of Al Sharpton headlined, “MSNBC Race Pimp.”
What do you think? Was Essence just looking for an excuse to right a wrong?
