New York Times journalist Sarah Jeong put a Macomb County pastor on blast for harassing her from his church email address.
Jeong posted a screenshot of the email, from Rev. David Muns of Macomb Township's Christian Life Church, on her Twitter account on Tuesday.
"I pretty much never do this but this guy is a 'pastor,'" Jeong wrote on Twitter.
"How about if we took all the little bitter Asian woman and had a lottery and cut their clits like the Muslims do," Muns wrote in the email. "Not a very classy position is it, neither is your trashy little bitter personality towards white men. Only in a world where journalism is controlled by brain dead Liberals do you people even have jobs."
You would be surprised at how many people send me these kinds of messages from their work emails. But using the domain for your online church is a new low, and yes, I am going post your email on the internet.— sarah jeong (@sarahjeong) September 15, 2020
