Woman fired after posting on Facebook she wishes Obama will be assassinated


(FOX 25 / – A California woman who called President Barack Obama the N-word on Facebook and said she wished he would be assassinated has lost her job.

"Another 4 years of this (N-word)," Denise Helms wrote on her Facebook Tuesday night. "Maybe he will get assassinated this term."

According to Fox 40, Helms, 22, was fired from her job at a Turlock, Calif., Cold Stone Creamery, and the Secret Service is now looking into her comments.

"I didn't think it would be that big of a deal," Helms told Fox 40. "The assassination part is kind of harsh. I'm not saying like I would go do that or anything like that, by any means, but if it was to happen, I don't think I'd care one bit."
