Breaking: Tweet from Grilo Mocking Gold Star Owens Family Cost Him His Job

Dan Grilo, an admitted Clinton and Obama volunteer, took to Twitter last night to mock Carryn Owens, the widow of U.S. Navy SEAL CPO Owens that President Trump honored for his service last night.

As expected, he got an earful from other people on Twitter that vehemently disagreed with his vile comment, see here; http://archive.is/CEXjf

In response to his hateful comment, he apologized but nonetheless Twitter deleted his account.

FoxNews.com reports that he also lost his job in Chicago:

Grilo’s LinkedIn page says he works as a principal for the Chicago-based Liberty Advisor Group. But as of Wednesday morning, Grilo’s profile page on the site had been deleted, and the company later confirmed that an employee had sent what they called “an offensive and inappropriate tweet” regarding the Gold Star family.

In a statement, the company said that while the message was from his personal account, “his comments were inconsistent with the Company’s values.”

“Regardless of whether the comments in the tweet were intended to cause the hurt and anger that they ultimately generated, they were unacceptable to us, and the individual who issued the tweet is no longer affiliated with Liberty,” the statement said.

Some people never learn to think before sending a tweet.
