A man who was seen using a racial slur in a road-rage confrontation that was caught in a viral video is no longer employed with Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS).

Multiple media reports on Tuesday (Aug. 2) confirmed that the man is no longer working at HHS. The hospital network said it could comment further on a personnel matter, leading to some inclarity about whether the man resigned or was terminated.

On July 11, three weeks ago, 6ixBuzzTV posted a video of a shouting match between two male drivers. One of them got out of his car at a red light while it was behind a Hamilton city bus, and yelled at the driver who was behind him through his driver’s-side window. The driver who was out of his car shouted a common anti-Black racial slur. The driver asked the man to repeat his comment, saying, “What did you say about my wife?”

The other man walked back and slapped the car. He then returned to his grey Nissan Sentra and drove away.

The Hamilton Police said at that time they were investigating a “hate incident,” but the man has not been charged.
