The father of the twin girls who allegedly sent malicious and racist SnapChat messages to an 11-year-old girl has been fired from his job.
Deron Puro’s daughters sent the SnapChat videos to the daughter of Brad Knudson. His daughter is black, and was adopted by he and his wife, both white, when she was a baby. When Knudson found out his daughter was being bullied, he took to YouTube and posted an emotionally-charged video, OpposingViews previously reported.
One of the SnapChat messages his daughter received said she was “such a slut, “a n*****,” and a “fat a** b****.”
FOX 9 reached out to Puro’s employer and was told he was no longer associated with the Minnesota financial firm as an independent contractor as of Jan. 21, two days after Knudson posted the video online that included a racially-charged voicemail left by Puro.
“Yeah, Brad, tides have turned, huh? I guess you're n***** lover. Call me back,” Puro allegedly said in the voicemail to Knudson.
Knudson called Puro back to let him know he would be posting a video about their correspondence, reports FOX News. Puro told him that was fine.
