Fired for Defending Natural Hair

Meteorologist Rhonda Lee was fired from Louisiana KTBS 3 news in Oct. 2012 for responding to a racist comment about her natural hair. The station said that Lee violated company policy when she responded to the comments with an explanation about her ethnic hair and African-American heritage.
