yeah that's not how the first amendment works loooool. First amendment prevents government from censoring your speech (and still has a list of exceptions for public safety such as the oft-cited injunction on yelling "Fire" in a crowded theater) but it does absolutely nothing, zero, zip to prevent other civilians from being upset when you say something stupid or hateful for no goddamn reason.

Now, and I'm white so my opinion on this is pretty far down the list of who you'd consult on the matter- but I personally do think the furor over the n-word often goes a bit too far online. I've seen the reddit hivemind cheer for an old man getting the shit beaten out of him for referring to a black dude as "boy" (which may or may not have been a slur depending on a whole lot of contextual factors) and I just don't think it's healthy or rational to seal-clap for violence in response to someone using a word you don't like. All of that being said, this lady has every reason to know better and her feigned outrage over this has all the vibes of "Well, well, well if it isn't the consequences of my own actions…"
