VisuWell CEO firedA Tennessee man was fired from his job as the CEO of a telehealth company after an altercation with a teenager who wore a dress for prom.

A TikTok video that went viral over the weekend captures Sam Johnson following teenager Dalton Stevens around the outside of the Harpeth Hotel in downtown Franklin, Tennessee, where Johnson called Stevens an idiot for wearing the dress to prom at Franklin High School.

Johnson was the CEO of VisuWell, a telehealth platform company, until the video went viral. The company posted on Twitter Monday night that Johnson was removed as CEO by the board of directors.

"VisuWell's culture emphasizes respect, kindness and compassion, especially for those from traditionally marginalized communities, and we maintain a zero-tolerance policy for intolerance of any kind," VisuWell said on Twitter. "Mr. Johnson's actions contradicted the high standards we set for ourselves in promoting the health of those who use our platform."

TVNL Comment:  Good for VisuWell. It's time to end this kind of bigotry.
