According to the AtlantaBlackStar, the man known as Geris Hilton (real name Gerod Roth) on Facebook has been terminated from his position at Polaris Marketing Group after a picture he posted on his page spurred hurtful and racially-charged comments about a co-worker’s Black child.

The company released a statement via Facebook to address Roth’s termination:

 

Hilton and his friends decided to make racist “jokes” at the child’s expense in the post.

Since the photo has gone viral, one of the commenters, Emily Irene Red, has allegedly been fired as well.

The child has been identified by his mother Sydney as Cayden Jace. She took to her Facebook page to express her gratitude for all of the support she has received.

The hashtag #HisNameIsCayden is starting to gain traction on Twitter as more people become aware of this bigotry.
