Shame, Shame, Shame Channel 3. I live in Shreveport, I thought she had moved out of state, had no idea where she was. I will no longer look at your news. God made us and you cant undue it. I am proud to be what He made me. I hope you do the right thing before God take all of your jobs. You don't mess with God children, he see, hear everything you do. If you are one of Gods children, do what is right.

There is no reason why she should be terminated for defending her hair, nor for responding to racist posts from the audience. I applaud Rhonda Lee's efforts to provide a positive example for girls that they can be happy with their natural appearance. The media inflicts enough negative images that pressure women and girls to adopt strenuous routines 'to be beautiful,' regardless of race or creed. Lee's positive example shows girls that the need not straighten there hair or wear a wig to be successful and happy with who they are.

I for one believe her appearance is very acceptable. It is neat and attractative for any proffessinal job.

Thank you Ms. Whiteman for starting this petition. It is disgusting that Mr. Vascocu (who had the prescence of mind to at least apologize) had the gall to post that (freedom of speech but without the forethought) ridiculous comment. Disgusting that her employer enforced a STATEMENT to punish someone who should stand up for herself, especially if they (her former employer) is not going to. There is no shame because KTBS knew exactly what they were doing! Petition to get her job back...there?...

She (and others victims like her) deserve to be at a job that cares about diversity and respects her and what shows respect for what she brings to the company. All the best Ms. Lee.

How dare they fire someone for defending themselves. So a person can say whatever insensitive and insulting comment they want, but god forbid someone attempt to defend themselves.

I am very disheartened by what happened to Rhonda Lee. When I was growing up I wanted to be a news anchor and I was always happy to see women of color that reminded me of the professional women in my family. Some wore their hair straight, others in short afros or curls and some even wore braids. It would seem like the station would have used this as a teaching moment for viewers and their staff but instead they chose to fire someone who seems to be very much liked and respected for her work...

It would seem like the station would have used this as a teaching moment for viewers and their staff but instead they chose to fire someone who seems to be very much liked and respected for her work just because she chose to enlighten a viewer. She didn't talk down to him, she chose her words intelligently and thoughtfully. There is no policy. An email that was suggestive in nature can not count as a company policy so I think the firing was a mistake and should be overturned.

I ain't no crusader but I believe that fair is fair. Apologize to this woman and eat some shit (its good for your soul) and let her do her job.

I cannot believe she was fired over the comments I read attributed to her online! What is wrong with KTBS?
