Talk Radio Host Claims Joke About VP Harris Got Her Fired

After suggesting that Vice President Kamala Harris’ brown outfit looked like a UPS uniform, a conservative writer and pundit claims she was dismissed from a radio gig and accused of being racist.

After using the delivery giant’s motto in a tweet regarding Harris’ wardrobe during the State of the Union address, Amber Athey, the Washington editor of The Spectator magazine’s international edition, said she lost her usual slot on DC talk station WMAL.

After suggesting that Vice President Kamala Harris’ brown outfit looked like a UPS uniform, a conservative writer and pundit claims she was dismissed from a radio gig and accused of being racist.

After using the delivery giant’s motto in a tweet regarding Harris’ wardrobe during the State of the Union address, Amber Athey, the Washington editor of The Spectator magazine’s international edition, said she lost her usual slot on DC talk station WMAL.

“Kamala looks like a UPS employee, what can brown do for you?” Nothing good, apparently,” Athey tweeted on March 1.

The tweet made no waves at first, according to Athey, who wrote about her experience in a Spectator piece.

Athey subsequently said that a bunch of insane left-wing activists who want to chemically castrate children in the name of gender affirmation came after her when she spoke out against rallies in support of trans kids at the University of North Texas

Her bosses at The Spectator laughed at the furious letters and swiftly deleted them, and none of her coworkers on WMAL’s morning O’Connor & Company program seemed to notice anything was wrong.

However, Athey was approached “out of the blue” eight days after the tweet by Jeff Boden, vice president of station owner Cumulus Washington, and human resources VP Kriston Fancellas.

“They informed me that the tweet I wrote about Kamala was ‘racist,’ and that subsequent follow-ups defending myself and mocking the cancellation efforts were improper,” she recounted. “They stated I had broken the company’s social media policy, and I was fired effective immediately.”

“The integrity and reputation of WMAL and Cumulus as hosts of conservative material has been shattered,” Athey said.

A request for comment from Athey’s previous employer was not immediately returned.
