Editor: Mark Krzos’ Chick-Fil-A Facebook post was ‘completely inappropriate’

Fort Myers News-Press executive editor Terry Eberle sent this statement about Mark Krzos’s comments regarding Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day customers, posted yesterday on Facebook and pulled today.

The comments made by reporter Mark Krzos on his personal Facebook page were completely inappropriate. They were done without the knowledge of The News-Press and violate our policies. When we became aware of the comments, we asked the reporter to remove them. We consider this a very serious matter and hurts our credibility and we will take strong and appropriate action.
