How bad is the cancel culture? This bad!
San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) fired employee Emmanuel Cafferty after a stranger took his picture on the highway because he supposedly made a white power gesture.
Cafferty claims he was just cracking his knuckles.
Soon after the encounter, a supervisor of Cafferty’s told him he was suspended and that further action may be taken after an investigation. A few days later, he says he was fired.
Cafferty maintains he was unaware of the hand gesture until the whole controversy started.
“When my supervisor said that I was being accused of doing a white supremacist gesture, that was baffling,” Cafferty told NBC 7 on Monday.
“I don’t know how long it’s going to take me to get over this, but to lose your dream job for playing with your fingers, that’s a hard pill to swallow.”
YEP, that bad
