Brad Schultz was reportedly fired after sending a racist message on Dec. 26 to the Facebook page of Black Lives Matter Minneapolis after the group protested at the Mall of America on Dec. 20.

According to a screenshot of the message posted by, Schultz wrote: "You dumb f----- n------. Get out of town with your bulls--- protesting. The loser life deserved to get shot for not cooperating with police. You make yourselves look worse. Get off your a--, get a job, do something ... Just leave, white people don't like you."

Another Facebook page, Threatwatch, posted the message online, and asked people to contact Schultz's employer, Archer Daniels Midland, notes Minnesota Public Radio News.

Schultz later asked Threatwatch to remove his original comments, and apologized.

But it was too late. Archer Daniels Midland in Mankato, Minnesota, tweeted on Dec. 27:

"(1) ADM has concluded its investigation regarding recent social media comments made by an ADM employee in Mankato, Minnesota.

"(2) As previously stated, these remarks are unacceptable and do not reflect ADM's values.

"(3) The employee who posted these statements no longer works for ADM."

Minneapolis NAACP President Nekima Levy-Pounds wrote on Facebook on Dec. 29: "Hopefully, individuals will learn from Brad Schultz's mistake and think twice before making racist statements on social media."
