CBS quickly terminated senior counsel of strategic transactions Hayley Geftman-Gold on Monday, after she posted on Facebook that she was not “sympathetic” to the victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting and blamed the tragedy on Republican politicians.
“This individual, who was with us for approximately one year, violated the standards of our company and is no longer an employee of CBS,” the network said in a released statement on Monday. “Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to all of us at CBS. Our hearts go out to the victims in Las Vegas and their families.”
Geftman-Gold’s Facebook post quickly spread around social media, including references to her position at the network. Both her name and “CBS Exec” rapidly became top trending topics on Twitter.
