The lady may have difficulty getting another job.

I would advise her, if she could be so inclined, to go on twitter and apologize….

Say you were beside yourself that day…something like that at least to ameliorate the poison she uttered

Since when was an opinion ever protected from consequence? The only manner your opinion is protected is from the government punishing you for it. Even the founders weren't light on doling out social consequences if they didn't like what you said.

I don't think this is a Constitutional issue.

She has a right to speak her mind.

It's the "offended" thing that gets me. I think we're creating mountains out of molehills on a daily basis with things like this.

So she tweeted something!

(run around like a headless chicken)
AAAAAAAAAIIIIIGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

flip it around though...
how do you think the black community in general would react to a white teacher saying some derogatory thing about black people and then telling a bunch to kill themselves?

So any black people should give a damn what some white person said?

I guess I can never break wind anymore ever.

I might offend someone who gets offended by something like that.

People need to lighten the #### up!

Wow, are we really getting this sensitive that we should punish someone because of words?

I think this is just an example of the latest and greatest policies that reflect the age of social media. Most employers have a clause in the employees handbook or contract or both that reflect your conduct outside of work as it reflects to the reputation of the business. This person put the school in a position that they had to respond. Too bad she was an idiot as it cost her big time. We all should be careful what we put out there when someone else signs our paycheck.

Was she working or on her own time?

If she was on her own time who cares what she said, your company doesn't own you after hours.

(I've had to restart this post 3 times, I don't know how to reply)

So we are trapped and live in glass houses now, due to "social media".

You may have a point, but I don't like it. This is legitimizing butt-hurt, basically.

"What ever you do, don't have an opinion that might go against public sentiment."

Is this what we are becoming?

White, black, gay, straight, christian, atheist. . . people are just getting too effing sensitive to what others say or think.

We've become a Facebook culture where laws can be enforced based on the "likes" you get.

Someone posts/tweets something and all of a sudden, it's news?

It's things like this that make me wish for a global EMP!!

fwiw I agree. I don't like it either. I do however understand that social media is a relatively new dynamic for employers. I tell my kids not to post pics of them being stupid because they will be used against them when it comes to employment. Peoples rants on twitter while being free speech are also like those stupid pics on Facebook and the handbooks and clauses I refer to are the latest way for an employer to have some control over the business image.

Or just have a really iron clad excuse to fire a moron...

for the record i agree with you.
just trying to make a point...
i can think of several times where a white person said something against the grain or something not PC and had to isue an apology and kiss all kinds of ass due to the backlash...
cant think of too many times its been the other way around though...
