Meteorologist fired for violating social media policy

Posted: Updated:
FOX13 NEWS -

Rhonda Lee, a former FOX13 News employee, has made national news after her employer in Shreveport, La., fired her after she responded to viewer criticism on Facebook.

Lee was a meteorologist at KTBS-TV. The station said she was fired because she responded to a racial remark posted by a viewer on the station's Facebook page.

Though the interaction on Facebook took place in October, KTSB's management fired Lee in late November because she violated the station's social media policy.

Lee talks with FOX13 News on her firing from the station. Click the video above.
