Tabitha Duncan is a 20-year-old from Missouri who has a lot of explaining to do. She was captured in a Snapchat video being racist AF.
The video shows Tabitha’s legs as the camera pans up her body while a man asks her,
“So, we going ni**er hunting today or what?”
Her response was a disturbingly joyful and encouraging,
“You go get them ni**ers!”
With the camera now focused on her face, the man behind the camera goes,
“Look at my soon-to-be-sister-in-law. Lookit, she looks so pretty!”
Tabitha, clutching her beer, flashes a big bright smile. One writer described it as “one of the most racist, redneck Missourah scenes imaginable.”
“Maybe She’s Born With It, Maybe It’s Racism”
Probably not a beauty campaign that’s going to take off. Just sayin’.
Unfortunately for Tabitha, that video went viral and now along with “ni**er hunting” she has tons of free time to go job hunting. As soon as her place of employment got wind of the video, she was fired and the restaurant released a statement to a local publication.
Social Bar and Grill and its owners have recently become aware of a vile, disgusting, and offensive video made by one of its employees. Upon learning of this, Social Bar and Grill immediately terminated this employee as soon as they could reach her.
The incendiary comments made by this employee absolutely does NOT represent the views, opinions and policies of Social Bar and Grill and its owners. Nor will they be tolerated in any fashion.”
Tabitha is also a brand new member of our armed forces, but she may not be for long. The Air Force has released a statement saying they have been aware of the video since the day after it was posted and are investigating.
They claimed her behavior was “intolerable” – but it remains to be seen what actions they will actually take.
As for Tabitha herself, she’s shut down her outspokenly pro-Trump, conservative, Facebook page… but her Instagram is still alive and kicking. Based on the comments on her images, we aren’t sure how long it’ll be up and running.
She’s being called out for her racism – and for wearing the American flag against official flag code.
Tabitha isn’t doing much talking, but she did tell the New York Daily News that she isn’t actually a racist because she has black friends and black people in her family and her BFF is totally “a mulatto.”
The problem, according to Tabitha, wasn’t that Tabitha and her friends are racist. The problem was that she was underage drinking with people she “barely knew” and didn’t know she was being recorded.
Reminder: The man with the camera very in-her-face, the camera she’s speaking directly to, referred to her as his “soon-to-be-sister-in-law” soooo… we’re not sure how “barely” she knows him or how unaware she was of being filmed – but that’s her statement and she’s sticking to it.
Twitter? Your Thoughts?
Racist? Naw, her bestie is "a mulatto".
Say/type it enough and it becomes a drink at Starbucks. Pun intended.

Why do these racist crackers always say the same b/s once they get caught being who they truly are???? I met a black person once, I saw one in a grocery store, I’m not racist. Yeah, people don’t say what you said, unless they’re extremely racist. https://t.co/lpYlWwNn4S

They all say that, but would she say that in front of her "black friends"? Next she'll be crying and saying she didnt mean it. Girl bye

It’s funny how people who are racist, blame their stupidity and ignorance on things that have nothing to do with them being racist pigs like alcohol or even worse ambien. And then try to use the excuse “I have black friends” like fucker take your L and burn

THIS JUST IN: Ambien and now ALCOHOL can lead to racist, and/or racist behaviour. Researchers are wrapping up research on WATER as we speak.#asyouwere

Twitter’s not feeling her excuses or apologies, but what do you think?
