Did you think you wouldn't get caught?

Mississippi hospital employee Clayton Hickey walked into a polling station on Election Day wearing a noticeably offensive shirt.

Someone photographed the voter in the city of Olive Branch, where he wore a white T-shirt with the words “Mississippi Justice” framing the chest of the shirt that included a Confederate flag and hanging noose. 


The image immediately went viral, and many angry social media users expressed their outrage:

Hickey, a former police officer, was initially mistaken for a poll worker until local media outlets quickly identified him as an EMT at Regional One Health in Memphis. 

The hospital swiftly shared a series of statements on Twitter in response to demands that they take action:

The hospital completed its investigation and shared that the findings "led to the termination of the employee in question."

"This includes fostering a safe and protected work and care environment for all. Behaviors contrary to these principles are unacceptable and will not be tolerated,” they wrote.


Another day, another racist.
