Small Bite: @essencemag executive dethroned after FB posts were exposed. #ouch!

Full Platter:

Managing editor of Essence Magazine, Michael Bullerdick, was recently exposed for a chain of racist posts on his Facebook wall. Apparently a "friend" of his on FB took a screenshot of his private page's posts and sent it to Journal-isms. When the magazine caught wind of this the grits hit the fan.

Essence's Editor-In-Chief, Constance P. White, expressed her apologies for this and has assured her readers that he in no way is a part of the "creative" aspect of the magazine, instead only oversees production. Bullerdick resigned and has since accepted another position within the division.

I just have one thing to say about this: Be careful about those statuses and tweets Mr. Bullerdick. You should have learned this in "How NOT to Get Fired 101". SMH.

What do you think about this? Please leave your comments below. To view the screenshot of his page for yourself go to Vibe Vixen.
