A Pennsylvania fire chief who use a racial slur in a Facebook post directed at Pittsburg Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin over his team’s handling of the NFL National Anthem protest, has resigned.
According to an announcement from the Cecil Township Board of Supervisors, Fire Chief Paul Smith stepped down from the Muse Volunteer Fire Company today following outrage over his post on Sunday that said:
“Tomlin just added himself to the list of no good [n-word]. Yes I said it.”
Chief Smith apologized yesterday for the post, but the apology appears to have been inadequate to quell the firestorm. Township officials called for his resignation, and it was tendered this afternoon.
