Following release of the the viral video, the woman’s employer, Keith Family Vision Clinic in Johnson City said they were cutting ties with Holt, the outlet reported
(what choice did they even have one wonders….?).
The company confirmed that Holt had worked there, with the Johnson City Press reporting Holt was no longer employed at the outlet as of Monday
‘The biggest thing to take away from this is just to realize that racism is in your community however much you think it might not be,’ said Sierra Gilmer, who shot the video told the media outlet.
‘There are a lot of people that reached out to me saying that they didn’t realize that this was happening in Elizabethton and they didn’t realize there were people there like that.’
