An employee of the Arkansas Treasury has been forced to resign after catching bad publicity for sexist, homophobic posts on Facebook and Twitter.

Hunter Hatcher, a former outreach coordinator (who evidently was really, really bad at that outreach stuff) celebrated Trump’s victory with a post that read, “Y’all in Trump’s America now… Time to flick that chip off ya shoulder and quit being so offended. Gay jokes are back on ya bunch of homos,” according to the Gaily Grind.

He’s not great to women, either. THV11 writes:

Hatcher has made other sexist claims on his social media accounts in the past. On January 1 he posted, “I love Subway cause I can tell a woman to make me a sandwich and she does it with a smile on her face. I wish all women has that Subway work ethic.” He continued the post mocking the fight for equality, saying, “and equality? Don’t get equal, get to cooking woman, get equal on your own time.”

On January 22, Arkansas Treasurer Dennis Milligan’s Facebook put up a post condemning Hatcher’s statements, noting that the bigmouthed bigot is “currently on military leave.”
