PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A popular food vendor at the Philadelphia Phillies’ ballpark who supports the white nationalist movement has been fired.

Aramark, which operates food concessions at Citizens Bank Park, tells The Philadelphia Inquirer (https://bit.ly/2gZ9REe ) that Emily Youcis is no longer employed after “publicly connecting our company to views that contradict our values.”

Youcis tweeted Monday that she was let go last week.

Youcis was involved in a tussle last month outside the conference of the National Policy Institute, a white nationalist group. Youcis tried to interview protesters, asking questions like: “Do you hate white people?” A protester spray-painted Youcis’ hair and a photographer was bloodied. Some protesters were taken into police custody.

The conference drew headlines after some attendees evoked Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich with cries of “Heil Trump” and use of the Nazi salute.
