A man who was caught on camera shouting at an African-American woman during a Donald Trump rally has been identified and kicked out of the Marine Corps after he posted a screenshot of himself from the footage as his Facebook cover photo.
In a statement, the Marine Corps identified the man in question as Joseph Pryor.
“Joseph Pryor demonstrated poor judgment in his use of social media that associates him with a racially charged altercation at a political rally. Hatred toward any group of individuals is not tolerated in the Marine Corps and he is being discharged from our delayed entry program effective yesterday,” the Marine Corps Recruiting Station in Louisville said in a statement.
Pryor was kicked out of a “delayed entry program,” which is a preparatory step for boot camp.
