New York Times reporter, Sarah Jeong called out a Macomb Township, Michigan pastor who sent a threatening email to her. The email from pastor David Muns said, “How about if we took all the little bitter Asian women and had a lottery and cut their clits like the Muslims do. Not a very classy position is it, neither is your trashy little bitter personality towards white men. Only in a world where journalism is controlled by brain dead Liberals do you people even have jobs.”
Jeong said she usually ignores harassing emails but considering Mun’s email came from a domain from an online church she had to call it out.
A couple of years back, Jeong found herself in a social media storm after she was hired by the New York Times. People dug through her timeline and found some old tweets of hers that derided white men. The same people also posted fake tweets of hers that Mun seems to have taken offense too including one that said there should be a lottery for castration of white men, reports Click On Detroit.
David Muns eventually found out the quote he got pissed at was fake and issued an apology.
“Mr Jeong this is pastor Muns, I understand my email was off base as I have been informed that it is not something you said,” he wrote. “Ms Jeong when I read it and having prior knowledge to your position on the white race I just assumed it was an accurate post, bad mistake … My attempt to reverse the roles in my email was wrong and out of frustration and anger as I viewed the meme as gas on a fire … Though I am never going to be silent on injustices especially those of the race issue I have surely learned to slow it down and cool the head before ever moving forward gain. I hope you receive this apology as it is sent out of the sincerest of hearts Dave Muns.”
