Fired for Complaining on Twitter, Employee Takes to YouTube
Well, you can add Timothy "DeLaGhetto", a now former California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) employee, to that seemingly endless list. A uniform change policy had the servers' white button-up shirts and red ties replaced with black button-ups and black slacks. Timothy took to his Twitter account, @Traphik, to voice his displeasure over the change, sending an @reply to @calpizzakitchen that read, "@calpizzakitchen black button ups are the lamest shit ever!!!." Not the most professional thing ever!!!
CPK did some detective work and tracked Timothy to his Long Beach, California-area branch, where he was confronted about the hostile message (and another tweet the boys in corporate apparently weren't too happy about). After some deliberation, Mr. "DeLaGhetto" was let go. He has since become a YouTube and Twitter sensation.
Check out the video below for the whole story (from his perspective, of course).
Unfortunately for Timothy, his explanatory video will probably do more harm than good. This whole thing would have quietly faded from public memory had he not plastered his face on YouTube, proudly displaying his juvenile sense of humor and his inability to take things seriously. Good luck getting a job now, pal. [From: Mashable and YouTube]
