Flight attendant out of job after Facebook remark

leave a comment »

Social media is a great thing, but this article from Yahoo! News reminds us that it can be negative if not used correctly. 

A Cathay Pacific flight attendant was fired for writing on her Facebook wall that she wanted to throw coffee in a passengers face because she didn’t like the ousted Thai Prime Minister, who just happened to be the passengers father. The attendant made other negative comments, including that she will keep on fighting until the girl’s clan can no longer “live like fleas on the Thai soil.” She also posted a photo of the passenger’s seat number. On her Facebook page, the former attendant recently said she resigned to take responsibility.

The things we post on Facebook can get us into trouble if we aren’t careful and this is a perfect example.
