Remember back in February 2018 when The New York Times hired Quinn Norton, but quickly let her go after people exposed old tweets that included slurs against gay people and retweets with racist terms?

I guess only those slurs were bad because The New York Times editorial board hired Sarah Jeong who has a history of racist tweets against white people. The newspaper even sent out a memo that defends its hiring of Jeong!

As you can imagine, the Twitter mob is in full force and has been exposing Jeong’s old tweets.

According to Jeong, white people are “only fit to live underground like groveling goblins.” She also finds so much joy “out of being cruel to old white men.”

I abhor Twitter mobs and digging up old tweets to attack people. It’s the hypocrisy The New York Times just displayed that boils my blood.

In February, The New York Times hired and let go journalist and essayist Quinn Norton due to “her slurs on Twitter and her friendship with Andrew Auernheimer, who gained infamy as an internet troll going by the name ‘weev.’ Mr. Auernheimer now works for The Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website.” Here’s what editor James Bennett said about Norton:

“Despite our review of Quinn Norton’s work and our conversations with her previous employers, this was new information to us. Based on it, we’ve decided to go our separate ways.”

Here’s how the Times responded to the Twitter mob on Jeong’s tweets. The Grey Lady wrote that those who hired Jeong put the write through an intense vetting process and reviewed her social media posts. Maybe the Norton fiasco inspired them to add this to their vetting process:

Oh, so since white men supposedly harassed Jeong this justifies her racist tweets and hatred of white people. Now that she’s been called out, Jeong has admitted what she did was wrong.

Some sound advice for Jeong:

Racism is racism. Harassment or anything of the sort never justifies your racist behavior. Why is it not okay to have racist views towards blacks or Asians, but totally okay with having racist views towards white people? Why is it not okay to hate Muslims, but okay to hate Jews and Christians?

Guess what. ALL racism is bad and sucks. ALL hatred towards any religion sucks.
