NASHVILLE, Tenn.--A CBS lawyer has reportedly been relieved of her duties for comments allegedly posted from her Facebook account related to the massacre in Las Vegas.

According to FOX News, Hayley Geftman-Gold, Vice President and Senior Counsel for CBS was let go after her response to the shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 dead and over 500 injured.

In a screenshot shared by FOX News and being circulated on social media, Geftman-Gold allegedly stated she was "not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are republican gun toters."

Geftman-Gold was responding on a Facebook thread about the mass shooting, the post stating "If they wouldn't do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that the Repugs will ever do the right thing."

FOX News says a spokesman for CBS told the network "this individual" violated company standards and called her views "unacceptable to all of us at CBS."
