I was a kid from a small town in Maine who dreamed of working in the entertainment industry someday. My dreams came true, but I never thought there would be a time where I would have to defend myself from a corporate smear campaign and have to fight for my livelihood. Disney and ESPN push out a narrative that they are leaders of diversity, inclusion, and equality in the workplace. However, it is quite the opposite on the inside. After witnessing no response from management on serious matters that included racism and discrimination, I decided to expose it. I contacted Project Veritas because at this point I knew I couldn’t just tell people the issues, I had to show them.
Racism and discrimination do not belong anywhere in our lives. For a major corporation like Disney and ESPN, who pride themselves on fighting these cultural and social issues, it was surprising to see they continued to ignore the issues I brought forward. Rather than address the problems, they decided to investigate me. I was looked at as “the problem” and faced an unprecedented amount of retaliation and medical persecution from the company. I do not see myself as a victim, rather, blessed to be able to expose these malfeasances to the world.
Corporations have so much power today and they understand the more we are divided, the more control they have. Racial divisions are being promoted along with political, religious and medical persecution inside these corporations and we need to expose it and hold them accountable. Please, as of today, join me in this fight. Be Brave. Take pride in being an outsider as it is outsiders who change the world. What happened to me can easily happen to you.
Disney and ESPN has terminated my employment and it will be hard for me to return to the type of job I have loved doing for almost two decades. As I anticipate being black listed from the media industry, I humbly ask you to help my family and I get back on our feet as we prepare for the next chapter in our lives, wherever that may be. Thank you and God bless you all.
