Liberal staffers are outraged because their colleague, conservative columnist Bari Weiss, quoted the Broadway sensation “Hamilton” and tweeted, “Immigrants: They get the job done,” in response to figure skater Mirai Nagasu – whose parents are Japanese immigrants -- landing a historic triple axel at the Winter Olympics in South Korea.
One staffer claimed “Asians don’t matter,” while numerous employees said they were “offended” by the tweet.
“I will no longer remain silent about our hostile work environment just so that it will be pleasant for others,” one apparently disgruntled employee wrote. “Frankly micro aggressions and people being obtuse cut the deepest … and this is DAILY.”
“The diversity efforts here are nothing but lip service,” an employee wrote. “Let’s hire more tokens we can put in their place!!!!!”
Meanwhile, the HuffPost reporter who obtained the leaked information sent a racially charged tweet mocking Weiss’ supporters. “Probably just a coincidence that everyone coming to bari weiss’s defense is white,” Feinberg wrote.
