Apparently, a woman was fired from her job for defending her natural hair on Facebook.  KTBS meteorologist Rhonda Lee allegedly violated some unwritten company guidelines by responding to a fan's online complaint about her 'do.

There's a petition going to help her get her job back, and it looks like it already has about 6,000 signatures.  I don't know about you, but I'm signing it, too.

Yeah, it's horrifying.

I'm not sure those #%##& deserve her back, but they certainly should undo this prejudicial firing, so I'll go find and sign that petition.

Yeah, I was pretty enraged by it. She had to fend off some other racist comments too and the station didn't think much of that. I hope she finds a new job because they are too shitty to deserve someone who carries themselves with that much dignity. She defended herself far better than I could've done so -- I would've just been WHARGGGRLBSDFKJ with rage, lol.
