Actually, she wasn't fired because of the rant on Facebook but what she allegedly threatened to do if this slacker of a tipper came back.
That, in itself, is a no-no. And I'm talking about saying that you're going to "spit" in some ones food.
Of course, we don't know the excuse for such a low tip unless she wasn't a good waitress or the people didn't realize the gratuity wasn't included in
The incident began when this young woman was stiffed on a tip. She took to Facebook to let off some steam. "Next time you tip me $5 on a $138
bill, don't even bother coming in cause I'll spit in your food and then in your #ig [sic] face you cheap bastards!!!!!!!!!"
Lesson #1: don't stiff servers on tips. It's often their main source of income and generally sends bad feelings into the universe.
Lesson #2: you probably shouldn't threaten to spit on someone on your Facebook page, especially if you live in a state where that constitutes

How, you might be asking, did her managers at Chili's find out about this? That is where the story gets a little more complex. This Reddit thread

Some one had to rat her out...... and now since then, her Facebook account has been closed.
This is the link to Reddit that the controversy over who really turned her in came from:
Regardless of who snitched on her, she's out of a job now, so I guess she doesn't have to worry about that $5 tip now. That is a low tip for that high
of a bill but the lesson learned here is not to threaten to spit on any one or their food.
~If you go to the first link, it shows her Facebook page but I didn't include that here due to not sure of the T&C~
