Washington Post Political Reporter Felicia Sonmez Fired After Twitter War With Colleagues

According to reports, The Washington Post has fired outspoken political writer Felicia Sonmez, who has been waging a Twitter war against her coworkers and the news organization for the past week.

Sonmez kicked off the feud by tweeting her displeasure with an offensive joke shared by a male reporter. He apologized and pulled down the joke, but the WaPo punished him for a month without pay.

Other reporters tried to persuade Sonmez to stop tweeting about the incident, but despite management’s appeals, the conflict intensified. Sonmez was unimpressed, and she continued her tirade, expanding her insults to include colleagues who tweeted in favor of the WaPo.

As a result of her actions, she supposedly received an email termination notice on Thursday.

A copy of the email was seen by the New York Times, according to the newspaper. “For misconduct that includes insubordination, maligning your coworkers online, and breaking The Post’s standards on workplace collegiality and diversity,” Sonmez was fired “effective immediately.”


Wayne Connell, the Post’s top human resources officer, is said to have sent the email. Sonmez’s “public attempts to cast doubt on the motives of your co-journalists” harmed The Post’s reputation, he added.

Last year, Sonmez sued the Washington Post and several top editors. She claimed she was discriminated against because she was barred from covering stories concerning sexual assault after publicly identifying herself as a victim.

In March, the complaint was dismissed. At the time, Sonmez’s lawyer stated that they will file an appeal.

Sonmez has yet to make a public statement about her alleged dismissal.
