fan fired

Vulgar TFC fan to be fired for abusing reporter

Those FHRITP soccer fans that were shamed on camera by Citytv reporter Shauna Hunt have even bigger problems now. At least one of the big mouths is about to lose his job, and none of them should plan on attending any games played by MLSE-owned teams for the next year. The company has indicated it will ban those involved for at least a year.

In a statement released this afternoon, Hydro One also confirmed that it's taking steps to fire Shawn Simoes, the person who does much of the talking at the end of the now infamous video.

"Hydro One is taking steps to terminate the employee for violating our Code of Conduct," the release reads. "Respect for all people is ingrained in the code and our values. We are committed to a work environment where discrimination or harassment of any type is met with zero tolerance."

The others involved have yet to be publicly identified, but given all the attention the video has garnered, one wouldn't expect that to last very long.
