Pennsylvania Man Goes on N-Word Tirade Against Anti-Fracking Activists — and Quickly Loses His Job

If there is one thing we have learned about our modern hyper-connected society, it’s that anything you say can and will be used against you at a later point.

A man from Pennsylvania who worked for Rex Energy learned this lesson after he went on a tirade, dropping numerous n-bombs, when discussing his companies fracking projects with anti-fracking activists.

“Have you actually done something with your life, have you had any kind of a job?” the man asks one of the older activists, who laughs in his face.

“Just like this chimp right here,” the man continues, motioning at the camera.

“What did you say?” one of the activists asks.

“Yeah, chimp,” the man replies. “A f*cking n****r right here with a mop on his head. I don’t give a f*ck. He’s milking my f*cking tax dollars.”

“We’re peaceful, we do not need your antagonism,” one of the protesters says.

Raw Story reports:

The man responds by mocking the group with chimp-like noises. He goes on to explain that he had time to “tease” activists because his job was rained out that day.

Before leaving, he claims that he has only seen 10 black people in his entire life.

Although the man was initially identified by some as an employee of Rex Energy, a statement later revealed that he had worked for MMC Land Management.

“Today, we were disgusted to learn that one of MMC’s former employees used racial slurs and made racially charged comments during a peaceful protest in Mars, Pennsylvania, outside of work hours at a location with which we have no affiliation,” the statement posted to Facebook late on Tuesday explained. “We are sorry that this incident occurred. Whether at work or not, we do not condone hate speech – EVER.”

“MMC has terminated this employee and will never do business with him again in the future.”

Butler News identified the man as John Pisone on Tuesday. A Facebook profile for Pisone had been removed by Wednesday.
