Regions Bank: Employee associated with controversial Facebook post no longer works for us

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Regions Bank confirmed Wednesday that June Pridmore no longer works for the company after a controversy over one of Pridmore's Facebook posts.

The post had racial undertones and the bank released a statement today responding to people who have complained.

"We appreciate the concerns shared about offensive social media comments that were made through an associate's personal Facebook account. We want you to know that we share those concerns. Those comments do not reflect our values as a company or the way we do business. The associate is no longer an employee of the company," said spokesperson Jeremy King.

King says that Pridmore did not work in a position that had any authority to approve or deny loans.
