According to MediaBistro, KWTV's parent company told TVSpy: “Griffin Communications actively promotes and encourages diversity in our community and our business and does not agree with nor condone Dean’s comments. Griffin deleted the tweet in accordance with our strict social media policy which includes monitoring both station and talent social media accounts on a daily basis.”
