A conservative radio host in New Hampshire was fired after live streaming herself on Facebook verbally accosting landscapers who were speaking Spanish while asking if they were legally in the country.

"It's America. You should be speaking English," says Dianne Ploss, then-host of "The Dianna Ploss Show" on WSMN-1590 while filming herself talking to landscaping workers. "Is anybody here illegal? Are these guys illegal?"

After being asked by an African American man why she was harassing the crew, Ploss responded by saying during the recording, "He's a Black man and he's going to protect the brown man from this white woman whose practicing white privilege because she happened to walk by and heard this guy talking to all of these guys doing this work in Spanish."

"We at WSMN value freedom of speech, freedom of expression and assembly. We will not tolerate discrimination, racism or hatred," the radio station, which is based in Nashua, said in a statement. "We continue to present and offer on air opportunities for discussion, education and the exchange of opinions and ideas."

The station added that Ploss is "no longer associated or affiliated in any way with WSMN or Bartis-Russell Broadcasting, LLC."
