On Facebook: Racist Comments about a Child gets Folks FIRED

So, I had to post this because it's an interesting matter.

This guy is Gerod Roth (Geris Hilton). He worked for an Atlanta-based company called, Polaris Marketing Group. In September, he took this pic with a coworker’s child.

What happened next? Ignorance and racism took over. His friends posted this crap

These cretins had no shame... This child was the subject of some bullshit for these crapheads' pleasure! Well, this post went viral and folks were pissed! In fact, it went to head boss of Polaris Marketing Group. After some investigating, Gerod was fired and some of the others who posted these hateful statements were fired too.

Support from social media came like a hurricane, especially from Black Twitter. The hashtag #HisNameIsCayden carried the story for days and we got to know more about this wonderful little boy.

His mother, Sydney Jade responded on Instagram

I love that we learned more about Cayden, and I'm glad those fu*kers got fired.

I mean, i get that people think they can say whatever asshatted thing they want to on social media because, you know, it isn't 'real,' but someone needs to educate these f**ks.
