A fire department in Franklin Township Ohio has suspended Tyler Roysdon for his racist Facebook post

A fireman from Franklin Township in OH has been suspended for posting on Facebook that he would rather save a dog than a "n*gger" during an emergency.

Tyler Roysdon, a volunteer firefighter for Franklin Township, said he'd pick the animal because "one dog is more important than a million n****rs".

The comment was later taken down from his Facebook page, which features a cover photo of the Confederate flag and a black and white skull.

As a volunteer, Roysdon only gets paid when he's called to an emergency, which authorities said will not occur during his indefinite suspension, HuffPost reports.

Of course this rightfully brought about a huge uproar and according to WHIO-7 News, a disciplinary hearing by trustees of the department will take place on September 27 to determine if the 20-year-old will be fired.

He's a volunteer firefighter for Franklin Township in OH and he's (rightfully) in some deep, deep sh*t for his extra, extra racial comment that he posted on Facebook the other day.
