Breitbart Reporter Fired for Bigoted Tweets Now Trying to Crowdfund Hate to Pay Medical Bills

It’s pretty bad when you get fired because of your bigoted tweets, from a site known for pushing a white supremacist agenda like Breitbart, but that’s exactly what Katie McHugh has managed to do, after writing and retweeting some pretty heinous, Islamophobic stuff on Twitter in the wake of the London attacks.

CNN reported on Sunday that various colleagues of McHugh’s at Breitbart found her tweets to be “appalling, “terrible,” and “dumb.” McHugh was fired from the publication this morning.

After she was fired, McHugh did not shy away from her statements. In fact, she retweeted this:

Her racist and inflammatory statements aren’t exactly attractive to news publications, and calling her colleague “Cucks,” “p*ssies,” “losers” isn’t exactly going to endear her to prospective employers. But who needs another job when you can crowdfund hate?! McHugh is literally trying to monetize that hate now by crowdfunding enough money to support her and pay for her medical bills.

Wait a second? Isn’t it conservatives who decry handouts and express little sympathy for those who want to pay their medical bills? I wouldn’t donate, y’all. She’ll probably just use that money to buy a new iPhone.
