Dallas Weatherman Resigns After Post Bashing DNC For 'Parading Mothers of Slain Thugs'
A Dallas meteorogist has resigned after writing a racially insensitive Facebook post bashing the Democratic National Convention.
Bob Goosmann was a weatherman at KRLD when he posted about the DNC speeches by the so-called "Mothers of the Movement," such as Eric Garner's mother, on Wednesday.
"As many of you have probably noticed, I've stayed away from politics on FB. The DNC parading the mothers of slain thugs around on their stage has me furious," read the post, which has since disappeared.
The post has disappeared and Goosmann's Twitter account also appears to have been disabled.
Among the mothers who appeared Tuesday in the lead-up to Hillary Clinton's nomination were Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner; Geneva Reed-Veal, mother of Sandra Bland; Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin; and Lezley McSpadden, mother of Mike Brown.
Paul Mann, KRLD's news director, confirmed that Goosmann had resigned as the station's chief meteorologist, "effective immediately" according to the Dallas News.
According to his Facebook profile, Goosmann is now employed as a real estate agent.
Goosmann has held several television meteorologist positions previously, including at stations in Denver, Richmond and Dallas.
