Lilly Gaddis, who describes herself as a 'trad wife,' recently lost her job after a video of her making racist comments and using the N-word went viral—but it only helped propel her into a new career in 'conservative media.'

Lilly Gaddis, a self-proclaimed "trad wife" and TikToker, expressed gratitude to the "Black community" for inadvertently launching her career in "Conservative media" after a video of her using the N-word went viral.

Following the widespread backlash, Gaddis posted a video that fell short of an apology, instead doubling down on her use of the racial slur. As a result of the controversial video, Gaddis lost her newly acquired position as a marketing and sales manager but remains unapologetic.


The original video was a cooking video where Gaddis used the N-word and made derogatory remarks about "dumb whores," "immigrants fresh off the boat looking for a green card," and "gold diggers."

In the video, Gaddis expressed her opinion on why men think all women are "gold diggers," stating:

"You are getting the opinion from some dumb whores and immigrants fresh off the boat looking for a green card. Yes, they are probably gold diggers, but that is the exception — I am the rule."

She then went on to use the N-word in the following remark:

"Everyone I know that is married right now is married to broke-a** [N-word], and they don't care. We don't give a f**k about money."

Following heavy backlash, Gaddis posted an "apology" video on X, formerly Twitter, where she appeared unapologetic.

Wearing a shirt emblazoned with the American flag, she indicated she felt no remorse for using the slur:

"A recent video of mine seems to have upset members of a certain community and all the backlash really made me, you know, just do a deep dive, do a soul search. After all that, I still couldn't find a care."

The video then cuts to a clip of a man defending racism and referencing Timothy McVeigh, the mass murderer who orchestrated the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing:

"You're going to call us racists? You're going to call us potential Timothy McVeighs? F**k you. War."

The video ends with a quote from the late Larry Flynt, the publisher of Hustler, who famously fought numerous high-profile legal battles related to the First Amendment:

"If the First Amendment is intended to protect anything, it's intended to protect offensive speech. If you're not going to offend anyone, you don't need protection."

You can see the video below.

After publishing the video, Gaddis went on to "thank" this "certain community"—Black people—for her newfound notoriety and embraced the controversy as an opportunity to position herself as a conservative influencer:

"Thanks black community for helping to launch my new career in conservative media! You all played your role well like the puppets you are."

You can see her post below.

Gaddis was swiftly criticized.



As a result of the backlash and her refusal to stop using racial slurs, Gaddis lost her new job as a marketing and sales manager at Rophe of the Carolinas, a home healthcare company for the elderly and disabled in Wilmington, North Carolina.

The company issued a statement on the termination, though they did not explicitly name Gaddis. The statement confirmed that a "newly hired" employee was terminated due to "inflammatory remarks on social media that do not align with the values and beliefs of our company."

The company was forced to respond after social media users brought Gaddis' remarks to their attention, demanding its leadership take swift action and fire her.

After her videos went viral, Gaddis appeared on the far-right show War Room, revealing that she has always held "super conservative" opinions and beliefs. She also mentioned that she recently decided to post about "the stuff that we all think but a lot of us are too afraid to say out loud."

In the same interview, she claimed "victimhood is very profitable" and asserted that "there is not a lot of racism in this country," an ironic statement if there ever was one.
