This blog is an update to a previous blog, Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow…was it worth it Rhonda Lee? posted on December 14, 2012.
Fired Meteorologist Rhonda A. Lee appeared on the Steve Harvey Show which aired Friday, February 11, 2013. I watched The Steve Harvey Show hoping that Rhonda A. Lee would say something say that would change my mind about her termination. However she made comments that made me stick to my original opinion (which is KBTS rightly terminated Ms. Lee). Rhonda Lee continues to state that KBTS does not have a “social media policy”, however media outlets have reported that all employees were given the email directive on August 31, 2012 not to respond to negative comments on social media platforms including Facebook. When interviewed by CNN Contributor, Roland Martin, Lee said, “she never saw it!”
While Lee volunteered to tell Steve Harvey that the viewer apologized to her, she neglected to freely share that the viewer who made the comments was mentally ill and has been bi-polar since birth and that this was her second job in 11 months.
