Jennie Nguyen Fired, What did she do?

Over a six-month span in 2020 amid the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests, Nguyen allegedly posted and reposted memes and photos, including ones that mention phrases like “BLM Thugs” and “Violent Gangs.”
One post, allegedly shared by Nguyen in September 2020, reads, “I’m sick of people saying cops need more training. You had 18 years to teach your kids it’s wrong to loot, steal, set buildings in a blaze, block traffic, laser people’s eyes, overturn cars, destroy buildings and attack citizens. Who failed who?”
Another post which she published on September 2, 2020, read;
“Hundreds of blacks shot and many killed (including children) by other blacks every week. Over a thousand Officers violently injured, some permanently, by rioters. Anarchists riot in major cities every night, which has caused billions of dollars of destruction to private and public property. And you still think Police Officers are the problem. You are an idiot.”
Nguyen also shared racial memes on her Facebook page. One meme shows two cartoon characters — one an elderly white woman and the other a middle-aged white male — talking, with the man staring at the stick figures bumper stickers on the back of her car, that normally represent family members.
“No, that’s not my family, that’s how many rioters I’ve hit!” the cartooned white woman says.
