  • Vic Faust is an asshole? Huh. Who knew?

    Oh, right.

    EVERYBODY.

    He initially tried to defend this by claiming that there was a justifiable "background" to the story, but once it got out that he was an intolerable, misogynistic bag of fetid shiat, he figured using a PR-written "apology" and running from visibility might save him.

    He's at work. The "I had a terrible moment recorded" bit doesn't work when your job is TO BE RECORDED.
  • He looks like the caricature of the mysoginitic asshole in business settings in every movies and TV series since the 80s
  • This is local to me, I guess, but I don't know the names of any of these people.

    I was surprised that Facebook articles about this from local news only got Likes and Loves.  No one taking his side, and there's usually a ton of Funny votes about Republican crimes.
  • I'm sure there will be a spot open for him on Newsmax or OAN.

    The tirade is particularly farking repulsive. She was a co-worker who poked fun at his lack of computer savvy; he, in turn, spent over four minutes calling her a "farking fat biatch" who should "shut her farking mouth" and that her "kids have a terrible farking mom, I feel sorry for them."

    They're probably ginning up the press release even as this broke - yet another persecuted white man just trying to get some respect from woke liberals unable to appreciate him for what he is, rather than what they think he should be.

    I give it eight to sixteen hours, tops.
  • I'm sorry, but if you keep calling your co-worker a "biatch" and a "whore," be thankful that job termination was the only thing that's happened.

    I honestly thought he was Pat Sajak's kid after seeing the pic.  Good gods.
  • That part of his tirade included a dig at where she went to high school makes this a verifiable St. Louis story.
  • Love that his apology included the expected caveat to put blame right back on her.   The very model of an unrepentant ass just looking to save himself without actually believing he did anything wrong.
  • I looked at the Instagram posts. Most of the comments are condemning him, but there are definitely the obvious signs of paid bots replying. Which makes me wonder, if an f-list radio personality from Missouri can afford them, how inexpensive can they be?

    But seriously, go read the comments. Lots of butthurt from "friends" about how there are "too sides" to every story, and they "know Vic and he's great! She secretly recorded!"
  • "You think you're special because you went to Villa, but you're nothing," Faust can be heard saying. "You're trash."

    What a child. Anyone who mentions which school they or anyone else overpaid to go to during an argument is a huge doosh.

    Yeah, a quick "news flash" or friendly reminder for anyone who happens to be around a microphone: always assume it's hot, and don't say anything you do not want used against you in public.

    Got it? You stupid farking dillholes.
  • "Villa"? Is that football for Villanova?
  • urethra_franklin: Yeah, a quick "news flash" or friendly reminder for anyone who happens to be around a microphone: always assume it's hot, and don't say anything you do not want used against you in public.


    How about just not be a dick whether or not you could be recorded...
  • I've worked with very few loathsome people, but just opening up on them with a bunch of whining and insults never occurred to me. The coworkers sucked and were either incompetent or just nasty people, but I'm not able to think of any reason telling them so would change anything.

    I'm assuming he was recorded because he had done something similar already, and someone in the office felt that the level of offense needed to be communicated accurately to be believed.

    I cannot imagine the sense of privilege required to think that taking that kind of dump in your workplace wouldn't lead to a summary dismissal or make anything better. .

    Everyone knows you talks shiat about the bad coworker behind their back, build a consensus that they have to go, and then passive aggressively make their life a low level hell until they fark up badly and get booted when no one speaks up for them, or they get tired of being treated like slime and find another job.
  • If you hire haircuts based on their pubic likability rather than their ability to communicate news, you better hope that likability extends to an area when they are attempting to do more than playing ball or whatever contributed to their initial likability. But then local news has no paywall, so it's perfect.
  • Faust, who played in 22 games for the Missouri Tigers between 1994-1995

    wow! impressive! I have no doubt his whole identity is formed by this one year

    Yep. That would be ideal, and the world would be a much better place. Apparently, for folks like Faust, though, being kind is a bridge too far.

    /also, in case it needs to be said, my original post was sarcasm.
    //oddly enough, I typed it out while getting my studio ready for a voice session starting in a little bit.
  • runwiz: I'm sure there will be a spot open for him on Newsmax or OAN.


    Yeah, was going to say. Lucky for him we live in an age now where being an obvious asshole in the media can only help your career. Hell, the only thing that'll keep him from working those places is if he decides to run for Congress
  • Faust asked internet users criticizing him for the tirade to respect his children's privacy, before claiming that he sought to apologize to Cooper multiple times before the story was reported by the Post-Dispatch

    Aaaaaaaand there it is, the standard "leave my kids out of it" maneuver.
  • shabu: and someone in the office felt that the level of offense needed to be communicated accurately to be believed.


    Because white men are guilty of smear attacks in the workplace constantly. HR needs to protect white men.
  • I'm surprised that Faust didn't say, "The Devil made me do it..."


    / for all you Lit majors
  • He will probably cohost with Alex Jones now, what a loathsome turd of a person. People have bad days but this just seems like his true self came out to show the world who he really is when the cameras are not around. Who the hell would want to work with a POS like that. I am sure he will end up somewhere but he better try places at least two states away.
