When Will People Realize Joking About Assassinating The President Is A Bad Idea?

||

The Secret Service is investigating Heather Lowrey, a burlesque dancer from Louisville, Kentucky after she tweeted that she hoped someone would be “kind enough” to assassinate President Donald Trump.

The Secret Service confirmed that they interviewed the 26-year-old Lowrey and are still investigating the incident. Lowrey tweeted January 17: “If someone was cruel enough to assassinate MLK, maybe someone will be kind enough to assassinate Trump.”

While no charges have formally been filed against Lowrey, several of her former employers have issued statements and cut ties with her.

According to WAVE 3, Lowrey’s employers decided to fire her after the tweet, including the Va Va Vixens burlesque group, which released the following statement:

“Please, know that we, at Va Va Vixens, do not condone the behavior of Heather Lowrey. She was dismissed the moment we were informed of this incident. We have a zero tolerance policy for such. It’s no secret that we are in the midst of a divided nation. With so much hate and anger in the world, our hope is to be a sanctuary that welcomes all walks of life with open arms. We do not condone hate by any party and will not partake in it. We in no way support negative behavior or malicious intent from anyone.”

Also, another of Lowrey’s employers, American Income Life – Travis Moody Office, posted the following statement on its Facebook page:

“Heather Lowrey is no longer contracted with the Travis Moody Agency. The Travis Moody Agency, its agents and its staff do not share the same views, nor opinions as Heather Lowrey. We have a zero tolerance policy and would never condone this behavior.”

Lowrey is the only person so far to face federal investigation for posting about the assassination President Trump.

However, it is also rumored that the Secret Service has said it would open an investigation into Madonna after the singer told the Women’s March in Washington D.C. that she has thought about “blowing up the White House.”
