A Des Moines Register journalist who reported two tweets he described as “racist jokes” from a viral star is out of a job after his own tweets surfaced, the news outlet announced Thursday evening.

Carson King, 24, raised over $1 million after holding up a sign during ESPN’s “College GameDay” on Sept. 14 in Iowa. The sign asked for Venmo donations for his “Busch Light Supply.” King donated the funds, which were matched by Venmo and Busch Light, to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.
