Wayne Welsh, assistant chief of the Estherwood Police Department in Louisiana, resigned after sharing a violent, racist meme on his Facebook page Monday.
The post showed a white woman holding a little girl’s head underwater in a bathtub with the caption: “When your daughter’s first crush is a little negro boy.” The post quickly went viral on Twitter.
Ernest Villejoin, Estherwood’s police chief, told the Huffington Post that Welsh resigned. “When I found out about it, I couldn’t believe I had to call him. I called him at work and asked him what the hell is going on,” Villejoin told KADN. “He done it. He said it and he realized what he had done after he done it and he deleted it but it was too late.”
According to KATC, Welsh apologized online before making his Facebook profile private. “Well, I posted something on Facebook that made a lot of people mad,” he wrote. “Well, I’m sorry for what happen. Ya have a blessed day.”
