Pug Puke Contretemps May Make Pug Mom a Temp!

Chrissie Brodigan was victimized once, when her pug dog threw up on the L train. She was victimized again when she was arrested for the puking incident. Now she may lose her job.

The reason for the treason is either Brodigan's third pug puke-related victimization, or her own failing: the New York Post found a witness that said Brodigan was shouting anti-Semitic slurs at the arresting officer, a Hasidic Jew. Now, Gothamist reports that Brodigan's employer, Plum TV, has "suspended her without pay and may terminate her, pending an internal investigation."

But! Brodigan explicitly denies ever saying the things the Post's witness said she said, and says she may sue the paper for slander.

Where does Ray Kelly stand on this? Why is the White House still silent? Where is the pug's deposition? What does Abe Foxman have to say? This just goes to show that even the most inconsequential incidents can become life-altering when the media gets involved. Thanks a lot, people like us.
