A Subway sandwich shop employee was fired after going on Facebook and praising the deaths of the two Mississippi police officers who were shot and killed during a traffic stop Saturday night. Below is a screen capture featuring one of the post she left.
Another post said “Police take away innocent people lives everyday now & get away w/ it , f—- them . . . (no mercy),” according to the New York Daily News.
“This kind of behavior is unacceptable and does not represent the values and ethics of our brand,” a Subway spokesperson said in an email to The Clarion-Ledger. “The unfortunate choice of one individual should not reflect on the more than 400,000 honest, hardworking Sandwich Artists worldwide. The franchisee has terminated the employee, effective immediately.”
McCurdy’s Facebook page has since been locked, and Instagram account set to private. No one seems to be able call the Subway restaurant where she worked, and a cell phone allegedly belonging to the employee is sending callers straight to voice mail.
The shootings McCurdy is referring to involve officers Benjamin Deen, 34, and Liquori Tate, 25. They had stopped a 2000 Gold Cadillac Escalade in an industrial part of the city, shots were fired, and both officers were wounded. The two men died of their injuries at a hospital. Four suspects have been arrested in the shootings.
