Sports columnist Bart Hubbuch announced Monday that he was fired from the New York Post for a tweet equating President Donald Trump’s inauguration with the September 11th and Pearl Harbor attacks.
Washington Times Mr. Hubbuch has
since deleted the Jan. 20 tweet, which was briefly pinned to the top of
his page. He also deleted a subsequent apology, which said he let his
emotions “get the best” of him.
And on Aug. 26, 2015, Mr. Hubbuch sparked
controversy for a tweet calling the tragic shooting of two TV
journalists in Virginia a “proud moment” for the National Rifle
“Horrifying. Another proud moment for the NRA. Thank
you, NYC, for your strict gun laws!” he wrote just hours after WDBJ7
journalists Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, were fatally
shot during a live report in Moneta. Mr. Hubbuch spent several hours defending the tweet before eventually deleting it.
