Loan officer gets fired for racist tweet about Michelle Obama
Lisa Greenwood took to Twitter on Monday to come after Michelle Obama after the First Lady’s amazing speech at the Democratic National Convention. But Twitter came right back at Greenwood after her racist tweet and got her fired.
“Beautiful?? Seriously she is an ugly black b–tch,” Greenwood posted about the First Lady, and that was where it went downhill for the loan officer.
Because Greenwood uses her actual name on her Twitter account, some savvy social media users were able to track down her Facebook page, and from there, they figured out where she works. After that, Home Point Financial was mentioned in all sorts of tweets as the Twitterverse came out strong against Greenwood, asking Home Point Financial if they would continue to employ a racist in their ranks.

Soon after, the company posted this on Twitter: “The individual who made reprehensible comments regarding last night’s speech by the First Lady is no longer employed with Home Point Financial. Home Point Financial does not agree with nor condone such comments, which were made on the individual’s Twitter account. We hold true to our We Care philosophy – our responsibilities extend beyond the workplace and into our communities.”
So long, Greenwood.
