Statement for immediate release from Tippi McCullough, President of the Arkansas Stonewall Democratic Caucus regarding AR Treasurer’s Office Outreach Coordinator Hunter Hatcher:
In response to the AR Treasurer’s Office Outreach Coordinator Hunter Hatcher’s Tweet stating:
“Y’all in Trump’s America now! Time to flick that chip off ya shoulder and quit being so offended. Gay jokes are back on ya bunch of homos!”
This shameful tweet shows the homophobia that still exists and lends itself to juvenile name-calling bullying. This type of discriminatory language and attitude should not be permitted and is unacceptable coming from a representative of a government office. We demand a formal apology to Arkansas or in lieu of that his resignation.
