Carl Higbie, a former Trump administration employee, will no longer have his book on the market after it was reported he made racist, sexist, xenophobic, and homophobic comments in 2013, a new report says.
Higbie was the author of “Enemies, Foreign and Domestic,” a book that chronicles his service as a Navy SEAL in Iraq.
“We are removing Mr. Higbie’s book from the market," Anthony Ziccardi, publisher of Post Hill Press, told CNN. “We already removed the book from our website.”
Higbie resigned as the chief of external affairs for the Corporation for National and Community Service after his previous comments were reported by CNN.
"Go back to your Muslim shithole and go crap in your hands and bang little boys on Thursday nights," Higbie said during an episode of his Internet talk show, "The Sound of Freedom," CNN reported last week.
"I just don't like Muslim people. People always rip me a new one for that. Carl, you're racist, you can't, you're sexist. I'm like, Jesus Christ. I just don't like Muslim people because their ideology sucks," he added.
Higbie also made derogatory comments about black Americans, members of the LGBT community, and senior California Democrats Sen. Dianne Feinstein and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
Higbie apologized on Twitter for his remarks that were reported by CNN saying they “do not reflect who I am or what I stand for.”
He also told the New York Times on Saturday, “There are certain comments that I made that are inexcusable.”
