The guy pictured above is Eddie Adamson. Whatever you do, don’t ask him what he thinks about the Oklahoma City Zoo’s new baby gorilla.
Last night, Eddie resigned as the Chickasha police chief after he was caught kind of using the N-word on Facebook.
The Chickasha News has all the details:
Chickasha Police Chief Eddie Adamson resigned last night following an outcry earlier this week over a video he shared on Facebook that was captioned with a racial slur.
Adamson submitted his resignation, effective immediately, to the city late Wednesday, City Manager Stewart Fairburn said. This follows a letter submitted by Chickasha Police Sgt. Jeremy Alexander to the city asking for Adamson to step down over the Facebook issue.
Alexander said he no comment on Adamson’s resignation today.
So, what exactly did he post? Was it something controversial and racist about Ferguson, Missouri, or did he simple share Jay-Z and Kanye West’s hit song “Can’t-write-this-word in Paris?”
The item Adamson is accused of posting contained the caption “How a real n***a order Starbucks,” and was accompanied by a video clip of the film ‘Role Models’ where actor Paul Rudd attempts to order a beverage. Adamson later took the post down and apologized.
Wow, I totally forgot about Role Models. It’s actually a funny movie. I also had no clue that Paul Rudd is black. You learn something new every day.
Anyway, this is kind of weird. Why is a police chief posting movie clips on his Facebook page of white people ordering coffee at Starbucks and then using a racial slur as a caption? Isn’t there an app for that?
Fortunately, Chickasha News has a screenshot of the post to put it in context:
The Oklahoma Gazette announced their 2014 “Best Of OKC” winners. We were named the Best Website for the second or third year in a row, and in the process, beat our old nemesis The Pioneer Woman. This is only the second time it’s happened. Ree didn’t seem to care. She laughed all the way to her parents’ bank, then her husband’s bank, and then the bank she uses to deposit all the money she makes from her blog, television show, cooking books, merchandise and who knows what else.
Here’s the write-up in The Gazette. They used the opportunity to compliment me on my marvelous white hair:
I wonder who wrote that? At first I thought it was David Rhea, but he’s too busy talking to 20-year-old girls about his Creed cover band from the 1990s to be bothered with such things. It could have also been Jennifer Chancellor, but I heard she spends most of her time working on a series of essays titled “I left Tulsa for this?” It was probably just a freelancer. At the Gazette’s rate of a dime per word, that means someone made $26.30.
Although it’s cool to be recognized, The Gazette does their best to keep everyone in line by having winners like this:
Here’s some exciting news for obnoxious teenagers, Hamas terrorists and pirates stranded on Lake Hefner.
On Monday, William Crum with The Oklahoman reported that Oklahoma City is going to use a herd of goats from Langston University to keep weeds and grass down near a section of the Hefner Canal near NW Expressway and Wilshire.
And no, I’m not making that up.
From a NewsOK.com article that Facebook will probably label as satire:
I’ll admit, it’s difficult for me to write about Emily Sutton right now. And no, it’s not that I’m jealous about her engagement to Mr. Haha Imtotallybetterthanyou Fireman Dude. That’s old news. I’m totally over that just like I am the James Harden trade, which will probably go down in history as one of the worst NBA trades of all time.
The issue is that now when I think of Emily Sutton, I find myself thinking about fireman, and when I think of fireman, I think of heat, and when I think of heat, I think of Miami, and when I think of Miami, I think of beaches, and when I think of beaches, I think of breasts, and when I think of breasts, well, I find it difficult to focus on writing for this website.
I bring all that up because Emily Sutton and Oklahoma City Community College Hall-of-Famer Lacey Lett were on the air Tuesday morning when another totally natural, not-induced-by-fracking-injection-wells earthquake hit the Edmond area. Thanks to it, we now know how Emily reacts when she sees a tornado or Serge Ibaka at the gym.
As is standard operating procedure, KFOR made a big deal about Emily and Lacey’s reaction to the quake. It’s not as erotic as the threesome Lacey Lett, Tammy Payne and Stan Miller had the last time the ground shook, but for a split second it looks like Emily and Lacey may kiss.
Here’s the clip:
You’ll all be happy to know that Tulsa’s Brookside is about to welcome another burger restaurant. I know, I know–Tulsa needs another hamburger joint about as much as we need another mega church or QuikTrip, but this one will totally be new and innovative and radically different!!
