A white woman and MAGA activist has been fired from her radio hosting gig in New Hampshire after a viral video revealed her harassing a group of Hispanic landscaping workers because they were speaking Spanish, according to CNN.
Dianna Ploss, now the former host of The Dianna Ploss Show on WSMN 1590, was heading into the studio in downtown Nashua on July 10 when she came across a group of laborers working along the roadside. As she is live-streaming herself on Facebook, she asks if any of them are undocumented immigrants.
“It’s America. You should be speaking English,” she says in the video. “Is anybody here illegal? Are these guys illegal?”
If this wasn’t bad enough, Ploss repeatedly shouted “English” at the crew, which was simply doing its job.
After the video went viral, WSMN 1590 released a statement acknowledging that Ploss no longer is employed by the station
“Dianna Ploss is no longer associated or affiliated in any way with WSMN or Bartis-Russell Broadcasting, LLC. We at WSMN value freedom of speech, freedom of expression and assembly. We will not tolerate discrimination, racism or hatred. We continue to present and offer on air opportunities for discussion, education and the exchange of opinions and ideas.”
Morin’s Landscaping, Inc., the landscaping company whose employees Ploss harrassed, made a statement on its Facebook page.
