A white supervisor at a Kansas City, Missouri hotel tastelessly mocked Sandra Bland’s death by hanging a “slave doll” from a doorway at the hotel. According to authorities, Bland died in a Texas jail cell after hanging herself with a trash bag following her arrest for a minor traffic violation in which a white officer threatened to tase her and allegedly slammed her head into the ground over her not putting her cigarette out. Local attorney Stacy Shaw published a picture of the to her Twitter account.

According to Shaw, the doll was placed in a break area with a plastic trash bag used as a ‘noose’ to represent the fact that authorities claim Bland hung herself using a trash bag from a waste basket inside of her cell. Shaw obtained the image from a hotel employee who came to her for legal advice. Shaw did not say whether or not the employee was fired for taking the picture.

Shaw spoke with a local news station and stated, “I was deeply disappointed and outraged that in 2015 in a city that I love that there could be such blatant intolerance and racism that was present in the workplace. Shaw has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday where she will share more information about the incident and an anti-racism rally she is planning on organizing.

John Parker, the hotel’s general manager, confirmed that the doll was hung on July 21st and that management investigated the incident the following day. Parker claims that the incident is “completely inconsistent” with the hotel’s culture. In a statement, Parker said that, “Immediately following the investigation, the employee was terminated, Friday, July 24th, prior to the start of their next shift. The Adam’s Mark Kansas City is committed to maintaining a positive working environment free of unlawful harassment.”
