New York Times Fact Checker Used Racist, Homophobic Slurs on Twitter
Posted on by
A researcher and fact checker for the New York Times has a history of using racist and homophobic slurs on Twitter, according to a journalist for Newsmax.
Gina Cherelus — who on her LinkedIn page describes herself as “a researcher and fact-checker for The New York Times’ Opinion section”– appears to have deleted the offensive Tweets on Tuesday. But some were still accessible on her Twitter account.
But Newsmax host John Cardillo has posted screen hots of tweets apparently from Cherelus’ account in which she used words like “faggots” and “dykes” while also referring disparagingly to Asians, Latinos, and “white people.”
