Former White House photographer Peter Beard has become the latest public figure to resign after a string of sexist comments.
He said in a tweet that he quit his post after a tweet was published in which he said he was going to quit working with a “bitch.”
“I quit my job, and I’m not going to let a bitch take that away from me,” he said.
“As a black man, I’m sick of being the butt of jokes.”
Beard’s resignation came on the heels of a series of comments made by the president on Twitter that were widely seen as sexist.
He said last month that “I like black women better than white women.”
