Audra Shay Racism Controversy

Main Page

Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: May of 2011
Categories: Audra Shay & Young Republicans
Shay's candidacy, supported by Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, hit a snag in recent weeks when she responded to a comment made by a friend on Facebook saying "need to take this country back from all of these mad coons" with "You tell em Eric! lol." Other Young Republicans chimed in, saying the comment was racist and questioning Shay's response. Shay issued a statement saying she "was not aware of the racial comments until sometime later" and was only responding to her friend's other remarks. She did not immediately unfriend the racist friend who made the remark.
