How Facebook Can Get You Fired

The following three people are pretty dumb.

Good thing is: if you’re reading this blog, chances are you won’t follow in their footsteps.

Meteorologist Rhonda Lee was fired for defending her hairstyle on Facebook after viewers compared it to that of a cancer patient’s. [Note: This is not a joke.] While Lee felt compelled to respond because the comments were “embarrassingly racist,” her boss allegedly let her go for violating company procedures.

This lady’s bad day got worse when she was fired for venting about it. She posted: “I wish I could get fired some days, it would be easier to be at home than to have to go through this.”

Ohio teacher Melissa Cairns posted a pic of her seventh and eighth graders with duck tape over their mouths. “Finally found a way to get them to be quiet!!!,” the caption read. Cairns was placed on leave after the incident and said she plans to appeal, according to latest reports.
