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.
Essena O'Neill, from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, had over 574,000 Instagram followers, more than 250,000 subscribers on YouTube and around 60,000 dedicated Snapchat contacts when she decided to give up her life as a 'social media celebrity'.
In her final YouTube video, O'Neil describes why she is quitting social media.
"I put my value in numbers, not real life people, moments or my natural passions of art, writing...Posting on Instagram consumed me," she wrote.
"We are not followers, we are beings of individuality and love. I have never felt so free."
She said she is leaving her Instagram and YouTube accounts up as documentation of her journey. She even started changing Instagram captions to reveal the truth about sponsored posts and highly edited photos.
Instead of using popular social media platforms, O'Neill has set up a website and blog, letsbegamechangers.com, where she will continue to interact with fans and share her content.
Her first challenge to users? Go social media free for one week.
Police were helped in their investigation by the clear images showing John Mogan and Ashley Duboe hamming it up with their fortune in greenbacks. Four days after the robbery, they began posting photos of their loot, and one friend complained that Mogan " didn't hook a brother up."
Mogan and Duboe were arrested this week for the August 24 robbery. Police say they gave a note to the teller in the Ashville bank, and walked out with a tall stack of bills. He looks nervous on the surveillance video, but in the days after the heist, they both looked gleeful on their Facebook postings.
Apparently, Morgan had just gotten out of state prison for an earlier bank robbery. He put on make up to disguise his face and neck tattoos. But sadly, nothing could disguise his stupidity.
To mark that there are only 100 days left until the most recent and final Hunger Games movie, Mockingjay Part 2, releases into theaters, the social media team for the Jennifer Lawrence-led franchise tweeted out this poster early on Aug. 14.
There is something pretty dirty, most likely accidentally, hidden within this poster.
Do you see it?
We're not going to tell you exactly what it is, but we can give you a hint.
It's somewhere in this vicinity:
And before you say that it's just our minds stuck in the gutter, the post has already been deleted off of the Twitter account's activity. Luckily, the Internet never forgets.
Tomorrow's another day and they'll probably learn from this graphic design mistake.
The explosion reportedly occurred at the Tianjin Binhai New Development Zone at about 23:30 (15:30 GMT).

The Facebook clone claims it is independent and not actually sponsored by ISIS (even though it has ISIS logos all over its homepage). It says its goal is to show the world that they don’t only “live in caves” and “carry guns,” and they vow to “will rule the world by Allah’s permission.”
Khelafabook was set up by a man in Mosul, Iraq, according to The Independent, and is hosted in Egypt. There’s also an associated Twitter account which is linked to from the site.
The site first popped up last week, but has already been taken offline “to protect the info and details of its members,” according to a message on the page.
After it was taken down, Twitter accounts associated with Anonymous appeared to claim responsibility, as Vocativ points out.
For the the time being they’ll have to look elsewhere to share their terrorist pancake recipes.
In what is becoming a regular thing these days, yet another celebrity in the midst of controversy has reached out to people on Twitter, and yet again it has backfired.
Dr. Mehmet Oz, who has been under fire for promoting suspicious weight loss products on his show, initiated an online Q&A on Tuesday for people to submit their medical questions.

Here's a few notable examples, but you can read them all on the hashtag: #OzsInbox.
Dear @DrOz: is quackery a miracle weight loss cure? Something tells me your walls are going to be a lot lighter w/o your license #OzsInbox
People are taking to social media after a fire at the Manchester Dogs' Home in England took the lives of more than 50 dogs.
The campaign started when one person took a selfie with his dog along with his donation to the home and asked people to pass it on. The goodwill of people has been incredible and so far more than £600,000 has been raised – obliterating the original £5,000 target.
Those donating have been posting their #dogselfie to help raise awareness and more money. You can join the cause at the Just Giving page.
