LAUREL, Miss. — A Mississippi woman is without a job after apparently celebrating the murders of two Mississippi police officers on social media.

Two police officers were shot Saturday night while making a traffic stop in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. After hearing the news, Sierra McCurdy took to Facebook to celebrate.

“2 police officers was shot in hattiesburg tonight…GOT EM,” she wrote. “We can turn this bxtch into Baltimore real quick….Police take away innocent people lives everyday now & get away w/ it, fxck them…no mercy.”

In other posts, McCurdy is wearing a Subway uniform.

Many Twitter users were outraged and demanded Subway fire the woman.

“This behavior is unacceptable & does not represent our brand’s values & ethics,” Subway tweeted in response to the backlash. “The franchise has terminated the employee.”

    OK this is a situation where you must use your brain. People commenting that white people got her fired NO she got her own self fire. It’s OK to express yourself but be prepared for consequences. What folks need to understand is that most employers have policies in effect that tell you not to post certain things especially when you are wearing your work clothes and/or have where you work posted on your page. COMMON SENSE was not used in this situation which resulted in her being fired. CASE CLOSED
