Not surprised. When an employee (summer associate, associate, paralegal, whatever) is suddenly let go, the partners generally don't tell the associates why that person was terminated. It could that the other summers heard stories about the SA's inappropriate/racist remarks and are just assuming that those remarks are the reason for the firing. But the SA may have been fired for an entirely different reason (or, as the above poster suggests, a combination of reasons).
