Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an incident of workplace racism by a Trump supporter, WTSP reported Saturday.
A black woman, Terri Silar, said it started earlier this week when several co-workers were discussing gun control and Donald Trump in the wake of the Parking shooting massacre.
The next day, Silar found a monkey stuffed animal with a noose around its neck hanging from her office chair, with a racist note attached to the monkey.
“You are getting deported back to Africa n****r and that will make America great again,” the note read.
The threat was signed, “Whites 4 Trump.” and a note on her monitor read, “n****r b*tch.”
“I was shocked, but most of all I was hurt,” she told WTSP.
“I felt threatened. I didn’t feel safe. For someone to be that bold. That is a blatant boldness and a hate crime,” Silar explained. “It is a monkey with a noose around its neck. What message do you think I’m going to take from that?”
The woman says her company is supporting her 100 percent, “They were just as appalled as I was.”
