A Michigan village president joked on social media about the death of talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh, and residents want accountability.
Amanda Fisk, president of Middleville Village, shared a news report detailing the cancer victim’s death and wrote, “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *deep breath* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA,” WOOD TV reported.
Fisk has since deleted the post and told Fox 17 “her words are in no way affiliated with staff or the village itself.”
“I’m not a public figure of the township,” she said, which is the municipality that encompasses the village.
She asked critics not to share her comments any longer.
“Honestly, that’s not the way you represent a community,” Amanda Pullen, whose father, Charles Pullen, was Fisk’s predecessor, told the news station.
“I mean, you’re in the public eye no matter what.”
