D.C. real estate agent Gary Wicks is suddenly out of a job after he was caught on video calling police officers the n-word in a video that has gone viral.
Wicks was ranting about how protests over police brutality and systemic racism have hurt his business financially. In the video, he claims his anger stems from the police killing of George Floyd, but then he started yelling about how the protests have hurt his pockets.
“You f****** n*****s killed a guy. I had a practice that I built up for 20 years. Because of you cops, you killed a guy,” Wicks yells.
“Who?” asks one of the officers, who appears to be Black.
“George Floyd,” responds Wicks. “The whole city shut down because of you people. Follow me all you want. You’ve got the guns. You can shoot me. … F****** n****r cops. …You ruined my life.”
His employer, the Washington Fine Properties agency, promptly severed ties with Wicks upon learning of the video on June 9, according to Washingtonian.com. Asked if he wanted to apologize, Wicks told the website, “I think I’ll pass.”
