Black Rappers Make Millions of Dollars Using the "Nigger" & "Nigga" Words... White People get FIRED for using the same words - WDIV's News Reporter Lauren Podell resigns after reportedly using the "NIGGER" Word
Black Rappers using the words NIGGERS, BLACK BITCHES, BLACK HOES... are invited to the White House by Obama.... But don't you whities ever say those words!
Detroit reporter Lauren Podell has resigned from WDIV-TV after reportedly making a racist comment while talking to a coworker.
Detroit activists Sam Riddle and Reverend W.J. Rideout held a news conference Tuesday to voice frustration after hearing of Podell's alleged racial slur.
They say Podell used the "N-word" in an off-air conversation.
"One reporter's resignation simpl[y] begs the issue. We will demonstrate tomorrow outside of WDIV because of the systemic issues with the station's racist cover up and lack of transparency at WDIV," said Riddle in a statement issued Wednesday.
Detroit organizations plan to protest in front of the station today at 11 a.m.
Several years ago, Podell made headlines for using the "F-word" on-air.
As of Thursday morning, Podell's professional social media accounts had been deactivated.
In an email that went out to WDIV employees, Podell conveyed to her coworkers: "During my time at WDIV I have created many friendships that I will continue to cherish."
7 Action News has also reached out to WDIV for comment and has not received a response yet.
