Keep your racism to yourself if you want to keep your job. Social media isn’t the place to advertise your bigotry.

A string of racist Facebook comments prompted a number of firings from several businesses.

The shocking comments began with a post from a man named Gerod Roth, who went by Geris Hilton on Facebook. Roth posted a photo with a co-worker’s son, which prompted a number of racially-charged comments from Roth and his friends.

Many of the shocking comments included references to slavery, with one person even posting a photo of a racist cartoon.
