*A woman from Katy, Texas has lost her internship after she sent a racially-offensive tweet along with pictures of herself and a friend picking cotton in a cotton field.
Erika Escalante sent the a pictures over the weekend with the caption: “Our inner n**ger came out today.”
It didn’t take long for Twitter to find out about her sales and marketing internship at Isagenix, a wellness system sold by multilevel marketing.
The company was alerted to Escalante’s offensive tweet and responded swiftly, announcing this morning they had kicked her to the curb.
We too find this tweet offensive & we are shocked. This does not reflect our values & culture. The intern is no longer with us.
