Back in January, we reported that Jeromie Williams disparaged his former employers at the Examiner.com after he was terminated for fabricating events, people, and even supposed witnesses to serious crimes in his articles (see my original post for further details). Amazingly, he compared the Examiner to a Third World sweat shop.
Today we noticed that Jeromie has continued to disparage his former employers, this time taking aim at The Gaily, a website for Canadian gays and lesbians, where he was contributing editor until March. The website disassociated itself from him entirely after he criminally harassed, stalked and made death threats against Kim Johnson and her teenaged boys, using homophobic epithets.
The hashtag #cowardsgossip presumably was meant to imply that Ms. Jahn, and the rest of Jeromie’s former friends and colleagues at The Gaily, are all cowards for talking about him (and all his disgraceful, and often illegal, activities, no doubt) behind his back.
Well, we say, kudos to Ms. Jahn and The Gaily for recognizing who the real coward is here (if a bit belatedly), and severing all ties with him accordingly.
We would also like to issue a friendly warning to Hugh Hefner. If it’s true that Jeromie once “pulled the strings behind the scenes for Playboy.com” at “Team Heffner” [sic.], then, given Jeromie’s well-documented history of lashing out at former employers, Mr. Hefner might want to watch his back. Of course, it’s not true, as Jeromie also has a well-documented history of embellishing on his resume. Presumably if Jeromie was actually on “Team Hefner,” he would know how to spell the man’s name.
Still, it’s good advice for anyone to watch their back around Jeromie Williams.
