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.

WTF of The Day: This Man Was Fired For 'Liking' a Facebook Picture

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.
