A Dallas apartment apologized to resident Thurmeka Muller who was called “n*gger” by an employee after posting a maintenance complaint on the company’s Facebook page.
Muller, an Iraq War veteran, was upset over the filthy condition of her bathtub when she moved into the Timberlodge Apartments. She said the building’s managers had assured her that the issue would be fixed before she moved in. She said several repairs were needed in addition to the uncleanliness of the bathtub, which she claimed had not been cleaned in “years and years.”
Thurmeka Muller posted her dissatisfaction on the apartment complex’ Facebook page, and found herself in a war of words with a Timberlodge employee, who wrote “N*GGER” in all-caps.
Once Muller’s story went public, the comments left on the apartment complex’s page were negative, prompting the community manager, Franchesca Harris to post an apology to her. Harris wrote: “We would like to apologize for you having to be a witness for our Facebook account being hacked and one of our employees saying the N-word. Please reconsider rating us a higher star!”
The employee was suspended for three days.
