This girl was fired before she even started her new job... because of one tweet

Feb 9th 2015, 8:20 PM 84,942 45


TWITTER USER @CELLA_ was about to start work at a pizza restaurant.

She wasn’t happy about it, so she tweeted this:

There was just one problem. Her boss-to-be – who hadn’t posted a tweet for six years previously – saw it.

This was his response.


Aaaand she confirmed it.


The exchange immediately took off. So far, Waple’s post has been retweeted almost 4,000 times.

This pretty much sums up Twitter’s amazed reaction:


A number of people questioned whether Waple actually had the power to fire her, or whether his account was real. His response was unequivocal.
