A Florida prosecutor said a controversial message he posted to his Facebook account wishing “all the crack hoes” a happy Mother’s Day was just his way of inspiring women to make better choices.
But Assistant State Attorney Kenneth Lewis’ rude comment was just the latest in a series of hate-fueled rants — including supportive messages to the banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling — that have sparked outrage throughout Orange County.
“Happy Mothers day (sic) to all the crack hoes out there,” the May 11 post read, according to WKMG-TV.
“It’s never too late to tie your tubes, clean up your life and make a difference to someone out there that deserves a better life.”
The note came just weeks after the apparent bigot posted an attack on U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor.
“Reason enough why no country should ever engage in the practice of Affirmative Action again,” read the caption above a picture of Sotomayor posted to Lewis’ account.
“This could be the result. Where would she be if she didn’t hit the quote lottery? Here’s a hint: ‘Would you like to supersize that sir?’”
A string of other comments posted to his page, some dating back more than a year ago, included criticism of Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush.
He even argued at one point that a 19-year-old arrested breaking into someone’s home should have been shot in the head and “executed on the spot.”
