Veronica Culbertson, the Head of Hispanics Business Professionals of Southwest Florida Veronica Culbertson is now apologizing for a deleted Facebook post that some are calling hateful and racist.

The petition states “Veronica Culbertson, CEO and founder of Hispanic Business Professionals, is an insufferable racist and does not represent the Hispanic community of Southwest Florida. Thus, we demand her resignation.”

Here’s a screenshot, so it’s only part of the now deleted post that started the outrage:

Politicians and rich CEOs shouldn't make all the decisions. Today we ask you to help keep free and independent. Our job as a public benefit company is to help petitions like this one fight back and get heard. If everyone who saw this chipped in monthly we'd secure's future today.

One of the lines of the post reads “If someone doesn’t stand up to these animals then it will just get worse. Just do what you have to do if it means shooting them.”

Veronica Culbertson said the post was on a personal account and is not a reflection of the organization she heads, she has no plans of resigning.

She says her words were taken out of context, she has apologized.
