Hayley Geftman-Gold, a CBS executive who made a controversial social media post about this week's Las Vegas shooting, has received a series of death threats following the scandal.
According to the New York Daily News, Geftman-Gold worked as a vice president and senior counsel in strategic transactions at CBS before being fired for her insensitive post about the horrific mass killing that occurred earlier in the week.
“If they wouldn't do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing. I'm actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans are often republican gun toters," she reportedly wrote on Facebook.
“Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to all of us at CBS. Our hearts go out to the victims in Las Vegas and their families," said CBS in a statement, announcing her firing.
Now, multiple police reports suggest that she has received multiple death threats. She says she's been violently harassed online over email.
“In the last few hours my client, her family and friends have been bombarded by online death unimaginable in quantity and detail. We beg people to show love and support to survivors and loved ones — in Las Vegas and their own lives — instead of creating more violence," explained her attorney, Carrie A. Goldberg.
Geftman-Gold has since apologized for her remarks: “I am deeply sorry for diminishing the significance of every life affected by Stephen Paddock's terrorism last night and for the pain my words have inflicted on the loved ones of the victims,” she said.
