Linda Fairstein, the dingy-toothed prosecutor over the 1989 wrongful convictions of the Central Park Five, is continuing to feel the fallout for her dirty deeds.

Since the release of Ava DuVernay‘s “When They See Us,” Netflix miniseries, there has been a renewed outrage towards everyone who had a part in convicting five innocent black and latino teens for the rape of a jogger in Central Park.

Linda Fairstein, who is now a best-selling crime novelist, is at the top of the totem pole.

After being run off of the streets of social media, Linda has also resigned from the boards of two non-profit organizations, and now she’s been dropped by her longtime publisher, Dutton.

Last year, the Mystery Writers of America withdrew a lifetime achievement award after other authors protested citing Linda’s role in the Central Park Five case.



Welp. She deserves everything she has coming to her.
