Woman Who Celebrated Gunned Down Cops On Facebook FIRED

Sierra McCurdy, the Subway Sandwich employee who celebrated the horrific shooting deaths of two police officers in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, has been justly fired.

Sierra McCurdy facebook

We can turn this bitch into Baltimore real quick. Police take away innocent people lives everyday now & get away w/ it, f**k them…NO MERCY! h/t toprightnews

After the backlash against McCurdy started pouring in, she tried to delete the offence postings and to change her name and privacy level on her Facebook account, but it was too late, the internet discovered where she worked and demanded she be fired, the owners of the Subway franchise agreed.
