A literary agent in Wasilla has been abruptly fired for having two social media accounts — one at Gab and the other at the now-defunct Parler.
According to the literary agency Jennifer De Chiara, the agent in question has been using the social media platforms.
“We do not condone this activity, and we apologize to anyone who has been affected or offended by this.” the agency wrote on Twitter.
Colleen Oefelein, of Wasilla, has specialized in representing romance genre authors. She wrote on Twitter that she had been fired by the agency, and in fact, searches for literary agents at the Chiara agency show that she is no longer with the company.
Parler was de-platformed by Amazon and Google, while Gab evidently owns its own servers and is still operating. It is owned by a Christian. Oefelein identifies herself as a Christian.
