Service doesn't always come with a smile.
Bank of America employee Christine McMullen Lindgren has been fired by the company after she posted a vile, racist rant to Facebook. The Georgia woman didn't hold back on her thoughts, which are particularly scary, as one Twitter user pointed out, because of the influence she has over the lives of Black folks.
Lindgren, who worked at one of the bank's branches in Atlanta, said, "f**King n*****s...go back to Africa get over your pity party you created this hatred." The rant continues to blame not only descendants of slaves, but also the slaves themselves for creating the issues that plague the Black community today.
One Facebook user shared a blurred out version of the rant, and added an interesting and pertinent opinion of her own regarding the banking system itself.
Many have taken to Twitter to express their anger over the unacceptable rant.

Can we get Christine McMullen Lindgren a copy of Roots so that she can understand how Black folks got here.— Black Girl in Maine (@blackgirlinmain) June 2, 2016
Others tweeted at the bank to ask whether or not they had even fired the employee. Their question was quickly answered when the bank released a statement of its own:
Thankfully, the bank made the quick and necessary decision to terminate the individual. However it is incrediblY disturbing that a person who holds these racist and hateful beliefs was put in charge of people's money in the first place.
