The World is Turning Upside-Down When a Breitbart Employee Gets Fired for Anti-Muslim Tweet

Breitbart is not most people’s idea of politically correct reporting. This is a news organization that called Jared Kushner a Democrat and a “cuck.” The news that they have fired one of their reporters over an anti-Muslim tweet is surprising.

Katie McHugh, a Breitbart staff reporter tweeted this shortly after the London attacks:

CNN reported her firing along with statements from other Breitbart employees calling McHugh’s statement “appalling,” “terrible” and “dumb.”
Fox actor, Pej Vahdat (Bones) retweeted her post with the response, “You’re a real moron.” This prompted a brief Twitter exchange:


CNN added:
Another Breitbart writer, Ryan Saavedra, retweeted McHugh’s initial remark, writing in a now-deleted tweet, “People think I’m kidding when I say this but the crusades need to come back.”
“This s–t won’t stop until people grow a pair of balls,” Saavedra added.
It was not clear if Saavedra or McHugh’s comments violated company standards or if they would face any disciplinary action. A spokesperson for Breitbart did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

After she received the news that she was dismissed, she tweeted a plea for financial help:


To date, she has raised $332 of the $10k she is requesting.

What is happening here? Are they turning into, *gasp* mainstream *gulp* media? What’s next, Breitbart-sponsored safe-spaces?
