Joseph Cassano, 23, isn't the first person to lose a job over misbehavior in social media. But when Cassano resigned over racially-tinged tweets that he now admits were offensive, it made big news. That's because Cassano dreamed of following in the footsteps of his father, New York City Fire Commissioner Salvatore Cassano.
Joseph Cassano had been working for the city as a emergency medical technician for only three months when higher-ups noticed his tweets. Cassano, whose Twitter account has since been suspended, posted jokey messages about hating his job, unsavory notes about "boob jobs," and inflammatory remarks about Jews and African-Americans.
