‘Squidbillies’ Actor Stuart Baker Fired After Racist, Sexist Facebook Post Targeting BLM and Dolly Parton
When it comes to Dolly Parton, most folks are not messing around. The legendary singer and philanthropist has won over the hearts and minds of countless Americans with her open-mindedness and empathy. Unfortunately, it seems that wasn’t the case for Squidbillies voice actor Stuart Baker. Baker, who also goes by Unknown Hinson on stage, was recently fired from the show following a sexist and racist Facebook post targeting both Dolly Parton and the Black Lives Matter movement. Here’s what went down.
Stuart Baker targets BLM, Dolly Parton
Dolly Parton continued to show fans why she’s an immaculate human being when she recently endorsed the Black Lives Matter movement.
“I understand people having to make themselves known and felt and seen. And of course Black lives matter. Do we think our little white a**es are the only ones that matter? No!” Parton told Billboard during an interview.
Squidbillies voice actor Stuart Baker, also known as Unknown Hinson, wasn’t too happy with Parton’s endorsement. The voice actor revealed his racist and sexist viewpoints when making a post attacking the singer and the BLM movement on Facebook.
“So, now this freak-t***ed, old Southern bimbo is a BLM lover? Remember, sl*t, Rednecks made you a Millionaire!” wrote Baker.
Baker later doubled-down on his comments and made his racism clear in his next post after various commenters called him out.
“Yeah leave. Leave Liberals! Unfriend me, please. Because I don’t want you UN-AMERICANS around! Have fun becoming an Eloi or something without a thought of your own where you bow down to the ALL-KNOWING-MINORITY! HAVE FUN forsaking your own race, culture and heritage. Have a nice time!” wrote Baker. He later deleted his posts.
‘Squidbillies’ creators respond, voice actor loses his job
The creators of Squidbillies were quick to dump Stuart Baker for his reprehensible comments.
“We’re aware of the extremely offensive and derogatory social media posts made late last week by Stuart D. Baker,” wrote Jim Fortier and Dave Willis.
“The views he expressed do not reflect our own personal values or the values of the show that we and many others have worked hard to produce over the past 15 years. For those reasons, production of Squidbillies will continue without Mr. Baker, effective immediately,” they concluded.
Stuart Baker surprised by consequences
Stuart Baker was surprised to learn that his actions have consequences, and took to Facebook to rail against the results of his own bad behavior.
“Folks, I’ve been fired from my Cartoon Show, lost my endorsements and my chance of ever being booked by any Music Venue as Unknown Hinson again [sic],” wrote Baker, seemingly shocked that folks might have been offended by racism and sexism.
The voice actor went on to take zero responsibility for his own actions. He continued, “I just hope you a-holes are happy you took a good Man and talent down. You succeeded. Be proud that you ruined a person’s life all because of [the] Freak Show called ‘Dolly Parton and BLM.’ Thanks a lot. I gave my best to you a**holes for over 30 years. I guess you just love to kick someone when they’re down. That’s so twisted and perverted. Again, thanks! I’m remember you b******s [sic]!”
