    Penn State student loses job over Tech victim costume

    Nathan Jones, one of the Penn State University students who dressed for Halloween as a Virginia Tech shooting victim, said the controversy has cost him his job.

    In an e-mail Friday, Jones said he was asked to resign Thursday from his post at Bank of America or be fired.

    "They were worried that my name may be attached to the Bank of America brand, and that this controversy would lead to a scandal," he said.

    Photos of Jones and another Penn State student were posted on Facebook and caused a national outcry.

    In interviews with several media outlets, including an on-camera piece on CNN this week, Jones refused to apologize.

    "Things are going to be hard now, especially since I have no outside support. ... However, even though I will be starving over the holidays and my credit cards will all default, I still will not apologize," he wrote.

    -- Anna Mallory





    good riddance, dumbass, and good luck finding a job you fucking turd burglar.

    I hope he gets his ass beatdown at some college party.

    Hmmm.....looks like someone is learning that there our consequences for one's actions. The 1st Amendment DOES NOT protect you from the results of your free speech, so think before you do/say something stupid and go public with it. DeDe De!!!

    Very disrespectful.
    The whole tragedy happened less than a month after our school heard the "School Safety: Psychology of a Shooter" speech from Dave Grossman. Our college started defense against active shooters last year as a result.
    Very sad.

    Yeah, he has the right to free speech, just as his employer has the right to fire him for being a total and complete idiot
