This McDonald's employee definitely wasn't lovin' it.
The company told reporters Wednesday that an employee captured in a video luring a homeless man to the drive-through window in Detroit with a hamburger, and then throwing water in his face, has been fired.
"Hey, Willie. Come here. You want a sandwich?" the unnamed employee can be heard yelling before throwing the cup of water.
McDonald's franchisee Wise Finley said he was disturbed by the "inappropriate" incident and took action to fire the employee.
"This type of behavior is not tolerated in my organization. I expect my employees to treat everyone with dignity and respect, and this was unacceptable," Finley told the Detroit Free Press.
A Facebook 'like' can now get you fired.
Oh, what an exciting world we live in!
Troy Garrod, a 27-year-old from England, started working at Bertrams Books back in 2011.
He saw his coworker upload a photo in October on Facebook of a sweater with five wolves on it. Doing what most people do while scrolling through his Newsfeed, Garrod hit the 'like' button (along with 70 other people.)
But a few days later he received a text from his boss saying he had been fired for "bullying."
"I didn't know what the photo meant but everyone else who worked there was liking it so I just joined in," he told Metro.
Apparently the caption on the photo was making fun of the sweater, which another coworker owned. It read:
'OMG I'm f**king crying… I'm sure there's a wolf fleece appreciation page pahahaha.'
The original uploader is also believed to have been suspended.
Geez, you think someone wearing a sweet wolf sweater like that would have a better sense of humor.
A teenage girl with the Twitter handle “@Cellla_” did not want to go to work at her new job at Jet’s Pizza in Mansfield, Texas last week, so she Tweeted about it.
And now she doesn’t have to go, because she was fired.
Her would-be boss, Robert Waple, saw the tweet (thanks to one his employees), and he let her know himself that she didn’t have to bother showing up.
It seems like Robert is done with Twitter for while after this 15 seconds of fame. He hadn’t used his account since 2009, and he has since deleted all the tweets related to her firing.
“Made my point today,” he wrote. “I’ll check in again in 6 years.”
And Cella is seeing a lot of mixed reactions on her Twitter account now as the story spreads, but she just finds the whole thing so LOL.
This guy is definitely not "lovin' it."
A McDonald's employee in St. Paul, Minnnesota went on a rampage this past weekend, and the whole thing was captured on video by one of the customers.
He storms back and forth knocking down everything in sight, leaving quite a mess while everyone else in the store watches.
The scene is a bit like the kid who tore through a dollar store last year, but with a lot more screaming and profanity.
He had just been fired, according to the uploader, which triggered the McMeltdown.
This isn't exactly the McDonald's experience depicted in their new "Pay With Lovin'" campaign.
Current founders Al Gore and Joel Hyatt said in a letter to viewers that Olbermann was let go due to a lack of "respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers."
Olbermann will be replaced by a frequent Countdown guest, former New York governor Eliot Spitzer.
The writing had reportedly been on the wall for Olbermann, who missed 19 out of 41 working days in January and February, including nights that Current was covering crucial Republican primaries.
Olbermann denies the Current founders' allegations, and plans to sue over his dismissal.
"It goes almost without saying that the claims against me implied in Current's statement are untrue and will be proved so in the legal actions I will be filing against them presently," he said in a statement.
