• Realtor Gets Fired Over “All Lives Splatter” Facebook Meme

    Realtor, Lynne Hix-DiSanto, was fired from Keller Williams Realty Black Hills over a Sept. 7 Facebook post of a meme that depicted protesters being hit by a car. DiSanto is also a Republican South Dakota Republican State Representative.

    The meme that she shared began making its way around social media after the Charlottesville protests in August. As with most memes it is mocking and “tongue-in-cheek”humor.

    It states: “All Lives Splatter. Nobody cares about your protest and keep your (expletive) out of the road.”

    Ms. Hix-DiSanto added: “I think this is a movement we can all support.”

    DiSanto enjoyed some agreement and some criticize which is normal for Facebook posts that are political in nature. However, this one garnered enough angst to prompt her broker, Black Hills Keller Williams to fire her.

    We’ve seen Facebook post lead to termination before, but seriously? If she would have put up a meme supporting Black Lives Matter by running over people, I’m quite sure she would still have her job.

    The PC Police are out for blood, and they claimed another scalp out in South Dakota.

    It got so bad for DiSanto that she issued an apology:

    “I am sorry if people took offense to it and perceived my message in any way insinuating support or condoning people being hit by cars,” DiSanto said to Rapid City Journal reporter Seth Tupper. “I perceived it differently. I perceived it as encouraging people to stay out of the street.”

    “That was a lack of judgment on my part to not take that into consideration, the highly charged political environment that we’re in,” she added.

    Was it really? Was it really a lack of judgement or was it just funny. No sane person would think because someone posted this meme that they were going to literally get in the car and go run people over. Is this really grounds for firing someone?

    The world is crazy and social media is a battleground.
