Emergency Dispatcher SUSPENDED After Throwing Shade At Oprah During Maya Angelou's 911 Call! Are You F**king Serious???

911 dispatcher maya angelou slams oprah racist comments promptly fired

If this is true, it's one of the most insanely troubling things we have ever heard!

A North Carolina-based emergency dispatcher named John Ruckh has been fired after allegedly talking smack about Oprah Winfrey on the job.

Think that's crazy? Hold on to your Sunday hat because it gets a lot friggin' nuttier!

It turns out the dude threw shade at the LEAST APPROPRIATE TIME EVER! He dissed her while his co-worker was fielding an emergency 911 call in an attempt to help Maya Angelou!!

What the hell????? Seriously???

Someone dials 9-1-1 hoping to save the life of the 20th century's greatest poet, but instead is faced with an emergency dispatch guy who's talking smack about Oprah???

That's insane!! Especially considering Oprah was Maya's dear friend!!!

John's allegedly nasty comments were recorded on audio and are hard to make out, but it sounds like he said Oprah fell from grace after suggesting that some racists "just have to die."

Wow, we don't know what he was talking about, but it doesn't matter! This was clearly neither the time nor the place for that discussion!

Pressed for comment on why he let his caged bird sing, (the now jobless) John only offered:

"Unfortunately I work in a high-profile job and everything's recorded."

Ugh, unfortunately indeed.

Hopefully this hasn't caused additional heartache for Maya's friends, family, and loved ones.

The 86-year-old poet and civil rights leader died Wednesday; she continues to be missed.

UPDATE: Earlier reports said the dispatcher was fired, but now it seems he may have only been suspended. Either way, it looks like he's in trouble!

How do U think he should be punished?

    What the hell are you babbling about?!?!
    I am going to say to you what I say to my daughter when she starts babbling. Calm down and think about what you want to say. Then let me know when you have a complete thought.
    "It turns out the dude was threw shade" What?
    "Maya Angelou's 911 call!!" She called 911?

    If Angelou was white no one would have ever heard of her…
    And if Oprah was white, no one would care.

    I don't. I think it's stupid he was suspended anyways.

    Nice to see you fixed the post.
    From what I have read elsewhere it seems that the guy was just quoting what Oprah herself had said. I do not see any reason for him to be in trouble. Oprah said it and he just repeated it!

    Re: MJaded – I agree with both your posts.

    poor perez maya angelou is the only poet the dim-wit has ever heard of. I think the whole world will be free from being called racist when the oprah winfreed cow dies.

    Re: George Steff – You are ignorant. And racist. Oh! You're American ! I get it !

    If you're at a job where you're being recorded, either by video and/or audio, watch what the fuck you do or say. That also includes watching what you view and/or post on the internet while at work on a company computer. Common sense.

    Geez, get your facts straight. This guy was not taking the 911 call. He was a dispatcher that happened to be IN THE ROOM during the 911 call. I was a 911 operator and dispatcher for 10 years. When one person gets a call, everyone else in the room doesn't stop talking. It was a conversation between coworkers that was going on in the background. It was completely and totally unrelated to the Maya Angelou 911 call. Maybe all you Oprah-lovin, free-speech hating liberals could unclench just a bit and realize that disagreeing with your point of view doesn't warrant punishment. The guy doesn't need to be disciplined at all.

    Maya Angelou: the 20th century's greatest poet! (said nobody ever that actually reads poetry…) Also, this is a total non-story. Dude wasn't even responding to the Maya Angelou call. Save your indignation for something sensible.

  16. What a joke says – reply to this


    Love your latest tactics Mario. He didn't take the call and what he did was REPEAT Oprahs comments. Funny that she didn't get ripped for those comments of wanting people gone, lol. But yeah, call him a racist and fire him for repeating what a racist says. Go figure. And it had NOTHING to do with Maya Angelou either Dumbass

  17. Judy says – reply to this


    Question: would the dispatcher get fired or suspended if the 911 call was for someone else, or the dispatcher was talking about Jane Doe. Would he had gotten fired or suspended if the conversation had not been recorded? Just wondering!

    Oprah is the worst influence on modern society since the invention of crack cocaine.

    It might be beneficial in the future to confirm your facts before you spew your hate. The dispatcher has been reinstated and his BEST FRIEND AND BEST MAN IN HIS WEDDING IS BLACK, you moron!

  22. Torri says – reply to this


    For any white person to disagree with oprah means they are a racist. That racist cracker needs die. Hope he at least gets life sentence. Any time cracker disagree with black because they racist. Oprah was right, whites do need to die. Only way racism stop if blacks control country and crackers slaves. Go Oprah!! Anyone who says Dr. Maya Angelou isn't a doctor just because she never attended college is a racist!!!! She don't need no damn racist eduction to be doctor, she her own dang doctor!
