A staffer for Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) was reportedly terminated after five years of employment leading to a wild video that went viral and allegations of racism against her office.
In the video, Jamarcus Purley reported he was smoking a joint as he walked across the furniture in the office space. Claiming to be high on psychedelic mushrooms, he called it the “best night of [his] motherf*cking life,” explainig it was something he felt he had to do because “no one would ever know the sh*t Feinstein does to black people if I didn’t make it impossible to ignore.”
After Purley appeared on the MSNBC, Feinstein’s office released a statement to the network that read, “Office policy is to not comment on personnel matters, however Mr. Purley disclosed his termination letter that explained he was released due to repeated failures over weeks and months to perform his duties and appear regularly for work in person or remotely.”
Purley was terminated from his employment with Feinstein on February 8, according to Latino Rebels. Described as a graduate of Harvard and Stanford who studied abroad at Oxford, Purley expressed the concerns he had been facing in the wake of his father’s death in an interview with the outlet.
Having studied English literature along with African and African American studies, Purley detailed that he had received a promotion from his entry level post as staff assistant to a legislative correspondent in in December 2020, the same month he said his father died of COVID. This new position required him to read letters to correspondents and reply on behalf of Feinstein.
Purley explained that his new role gave him insight into the struggles of “Black and Brown families” and detailed his alleged efforts to get the senator to take greater actions on their behalf. He also expressed concerns within the office where he stated Feinstein had called him by another black employee’s name and where co-workers reportedly touched his hair without permission.
Based off of his experiences in the office and what he had gathered from her constituents, Purley assessed that Feinstein did not care about black people and told Latino Rebels that he accused her of caring “more about Kirby, her f*ckin’ dog, than black people” on an conference call with the rest of the team.
He also expressed his belief that there was greater turnover with black employees after Feinstein hired her new chief of staff, David Grannis.
The February 8 termination letter informed Purley that he was being terminated for performance issues. Purley published the letter to Instagram and paid the social media site to promote it. However, Purley said the post was removed after Instagram notified him it violated their policies.
“We’ve determined that this ad is about social issues, elections, or politics,” the message from Instagram said. “Your ad may have been rejected if it mentions politicians or sensitive social issues that could influence public opinion, how people vote, and may impact the outcome of an election or pending legislation.”
Purley said that the rejection to promote his termination made him angry and he reacted by eating “shrooms,” putting on a suit and heading to the Capitol. Once there, allegedly under the influence of psychedelic hallucinogens, Purley entered the office of Feinstein and filmed himself dancing and singing along to the DeBarge song “I Like It.”
