1984: Girlfriend of man behind “white lives matter” banner FIRED from her job

Follow us on social media!

On Monday a plane flew over Manchester City’s stadium with a banner reading “WHITE LIVES MATTER BURNLEY”.

The stunt took place just moments after players had taken the knee in support of Black Lives Matter protests.

Now the man behind the stunt, Jake Hepple, lost his job at an engineering company called Paradigm Precision.

The man wrote on his facebook that he would “like to take this time to apologise…to absolutely f***ing nobody!” after the banner stunt.

Now it turns out that his girlfriend Megan Rambadt has also lost her job at a beauty salon after condemning “abhorrently racist” comments she had posted on social media.

She had complained on Twitter that her town centre is “like a foreign country”.

Her employer Solace Foot Health & Reflexology told her she needed to take an “intensive racial sensitivity training” re-education, however it appears she refused as a final update shows Megan is leaving the company.

Statement from Megan Rambadt employer

The girlfriend, aged only 21, reportedly wept after being fired from the beauty salon.

All of this is despite police having come out and said that no criminal offence was committed, with police even offering Jake Hepple protection in case people target him.

The banner was made partially in response to the Reading terror attack in which 3 people were killed.

“Then the attack happened in Reading and I thought I have to get more involved with the banner. I was angry that white people had been killed and nobody was making a fuss about that.” Jake Hepple told the Daily Mail.

He commented on facebook saying “It’s now apparently racist to say white lives matter (the day after 3 white people got murdered in a park in Reading”.

Campaigns were started on GoFundMe to raise money for him and his girlfriend, however the website has now removed them for having “violated terms of service”.

This leaves Jake Hepple and his girlfriend without any jobs and without any donations to be able to support themselves for saying “white lives matter”.
