    So I recently had some racist abuse thrown my way on social media... the genius dishing it out had his employers listed on his profile. I went ahead and reported him. I sort of feel bad about it, but sort of don't.

    Found this story while I was contemplating what I did.

    People need to learn their are consequences for their actions when they post discriminatory stuff on social media. Some forget that a lot of things a public, and there is a such a thing as sharing too much of your life. It's up to the employer whether they want to fire the person or not, if they do, thats their decision and probably a good thing. If you hadn't have reported them, someone else might have anyway, especially if they makes comments to other people.

    Fortunately this rubish has now shut down. Racism is wrong but half the things they targeted were borderline at best

    Don't feel guilty about reporting him. Like another has said, he needs to learn that actions have consequences. If I were an employer I'd much rather be informed that an employee of mine enjoys throwing around racist abuse in his spare time.

    Egh I'm not against reporting people per se but I wouldn't bother trying to ruin people's livelihoods just for petty crap they say on the internet. I suppose if I was actually part of a minority and was actually a receiver of such abuse I might think differently but idk.

    Don't feel guilty, if only just because somebody else would've probably done it eventually given enough time and enough racist comments.
