LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — A Louisiana musician has been fired from his job as a paramedic after he posted a photo on social media that shows a person wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood and a drawing of a car running into protesters.
Acadian Companies said in a statement on Facebook Tuesday that they had fired Jamie Bergeron for the Instagram posts.
Bergeron had been a paramedic with the company. He also leads a south Louisiana music group called Jamie Bergeron and the Kickin’ Cajuns.
He was suspended last week when his Instagram posts drew backlash and led to calls to the company’s office.
