Mississippi deputy fired over racist X-box rant
(Mediaite.com) JACKSON COUNTY, Miss. – A Mississippi sheriff’s deputy was fired late last week over an Xbox Live rant in which he dropped the n-word.
An individual identifying himself as David explained that some random user “blurted some racial words” at him and he decided to invite this person in to chat with them, for fun.
A heated argument broke out between David and this other user, who claimed he was a cop. To prove this, he gave David his address, badge number and other information.
At one point, he actually said, “You’re about to come to a fucking paid police officer’s house. I get paid to beat up n*ggers like you.”
Well, it turns out the individual saying these things was a Mississippi sheriff’s deputy. A spokesperson for the department said they confirmed Deputy Michael Slater was the one saying those things on the Xbox Live chat and they fired him.
