Duluth Fox-affiliate Fox 21 KQDS’s news director Jason Vincent apologized and resigned after one of his Facebook posts circulated, the Duluth News Tribune reported.

Vincent wrote on Facebook “Add drunk, homeless, Native American man to the list of animals that have wandered into my yard.”

The Duluth News Tribune noted that “Duluth’s American Indian Commission and the Human Rights Commission” wanted Vincent to make “an on-air apology and asked that the station’s staff attend an educational workshop on racism.”
