David Nicholson, director of NC apple festival asks: "Just when is the 'Old Fat White Man Day'?"

The executive director of a local festival is facing backlash after he made a Facebook post about Juneteenth.

“There’s really no excuse at this point in 2022 not to know.” Crystal Cauley, local activist of the Black History Collective of Henderson County said.

The since-deleted post read:

“The Post Office is closed today for some made-up holiday that I never heard of? Just when is the 'Old Fat White Man Day'? (sic) I really want to celebrate this day.”


That status was posted Monday by David Nicholson, the executive director of the North Carolina Apple Festival.

3. Some insurance agency made a similar comment ("made-up holiday")

And Progressive Insurance "fired" them as an agent.

Now the agency owner can whine about "wokism" on his way to bankruptcy court.

5. "Didn't have any idea what the holiday was!"

Which is why he immediately called for a "white guy" holiday?
