AT&T salesperson caught using ‘N-word’ for South Fulton teenager

SOUTH FULTON, Georgia. (CBS46) – An unprovoked racial attack caught on camera. A man who advocates for AT&T racially abused his teenage son from the South Fulton family.

The man went door to door begging for customers on the Concord Loop in South Fulton.

A 16-year-old boy named Montrell Godley responded via the Ring camera and said he needed to speak to his father first. But just then the man left and said, “Thank you for being you [racial slur]”.

The man appears to be using the derogatory term the second time he walks to the driveway.

The family was shocked and traumatized by what they saw on camera.

“I was in shock. Because this is the first time I’ve come across this. I didn’t expect it and couldn’t find the words,” Montrell Godley said. “It’s just something that no African American should take.”

Montrell’s father is just as upset as his son.

“These things are unacceptable. It’s insulting. It hurts. It’s insulting. And it can lead to permanent scars,” said Aaron Godley.

He wants action, immediately.

“I don’t think that someone who has such hatred in his heart should go to communities and people’s homes,” said Aaron Godley. “Someone needs to sit down and talk to him. I would even be willing to talk to him and explain to him the damage you have done with the choice of words you have used.”

After CBS46 News contacted AT&T Thursday night, a spokesman said they had ended their relationship with the supplier.

AT&T released a statement saying:

“The behavior of this supplier is disgusting and offensive and goes against everything we stand for as a company. We are absolutely intolerant of what happened today and the relationship with this supplier has been terminated.”
