An Ohio police officer has reportedly been fired over a Facebook comment celebrating the suicide of a Black Lives Matter activist.

The comment, “Love a happy ending,” was posted under the name Lee Cyr on the Ohio Politics Facebook page two days after activist MarShawn McCarrel killed himself on the front steps of the Ohio Statehouse last month.

Fairborn Police Officer Lee Cyr was placed on paid leave during an investigation into the post. He was reportedly fired this week.

The Fairborn Police Department said in a press release in part that: “This action is in violation of the department’s social media policy and does not conform to the Professional Standards & Core Values established by the organization,” a local NBC News affiliate reported Monday.

Police say Mr. Cyr was off duty when the comment was posted.
