CBS Atlanta anchor Sharon Reed gets a lot of hate mail at work, much of it leaning on pretty racist rhetoric from trolls online. It seems like she is just about done with tolerating it. BuzzFeed News reports that Reed received a letter from someone named “Kathy Rae,” which was filled with racist slurs, or it would have been if the person writing it knew how to spell. Reed shared the message on Facebook, which reads:

you need to be fired for the race baiting comment you made tonight
it’s o.k. for blacks to discuss certain subjects but not whites, really??? you are what I call a Niger not a black person. you are a racist Niger. you are what’s wrong with the world

No, Kathy Rae doesn’t mean the country.

Reed also took time out to talk to Kathy Rae on air, and wherever she is, someone better take Kathy Rae to the burn unit, because this is scorching:

Reed repeated Kathy Rae’s email live, noting the message sender’s spelling errors. Then she decided to let Kathy Rae’s hate do the talking.

“I think when arguing with somebody, you have to be careful not to mischaracterize their viewpoint,” said Reed. “So I won’t mischaracterize your view either, Kathy Rae. I get it. On December 5, 2017, you think it’s okay to call this journalist a nigger. I don’t, but I could clap back and say a few things to you. But instead, I’ll let your words, Kathy Rae, speak for themselves.”

Everyone is straight up in love with Reed right now:

And don’t forget her coworkers sitting on either side during this epic clap back. They know what’s up.
