22-year-old Denise Helms has won the scorn of the nation after leaving a Facebook status update where she referred to President Obama as "the nigger," and called for his assassination during his second term. For her ignorance, Helms lost her job at Cold Stone Creamery and earned the attention of the Secret Service. Though she admitted that the whole "assassination" part of her comment was harsh, she wasn't apologetic at all.
"I'm not saying like I would go do that or anything like that, by any means" she said. "But if it was to happen, I don't think I'd care one bit." She also denied that her use of the word "nigger" makes her racist, saying that she was only stating her opinion. But when asked if she associated the word with President Obama, she said yes. Apparently, in her warped mind, that makes sense.
Cold Stone Creamery store director Chris Kegle didn't take too kindly to her comments, so he fired Helms. A Secret Service agent from the Sacramento office reached out to her, saying that her comments will be reviewed.
She did it to herself.
