Many are mourning the senseless murder of two police officers in Mississippi. At least one isnâ€™t. She took to social media to prove as much and has faced a fierce online backlash â€“ as well as losing her job, as a result of her actions.
Sierra Mccurdy, or Sierra C-Babi Mccurdy, according to her Facebook profile, posted a photo of herself still wearing her Subway sandwich shop uniform with a caption reading, â€œ2 police officers was shot in Hattiesburg.! [sic]â€ followed by a few emojis, and then, â€œ-GOT EMâ€™â€ with three gun icons. She also posted, â€œWe can turn this bxtch into Baltimore real quick. Police take away innocent people lives everyday now & get away w/ it , fxck them [sic],â€ three more emojis, and then â€œ[no mercy] [sic]â€ She was referring to the shootings of 34-year-old Benjamin Deen and 25-year-old Liquori Tate, two Hattiesburg, Mississippi police officers gunned down during what was thought to be just another routine traffic stop.
Subway was quick to respond on Twitter, saying, â€œThis kind of behavior is unacceptable and does not represent the values and ethics of our brand. The franchisee has terminated the employee, effective immediately.â€ They posted this same tweet to every negative tweet their chain received â€“ and there were many. Most of which were calling for not only Mccurdyâ€™s job, but boycotts of Subway establishments. A Subway spokesman also added, â€œThe unfortunate choice of one individual should not reflect on the more than 400,000 honest, hardworking Sandwich Artists worldwide.â€
Three people have been arrested for the shooting and two of them have been charged with capital murder.
