Man Fired for Sharing an Elmo Meme; Mob Rule Takes Over

by Evil HR Lady on October 28, 2019

Cody Hidalgo shared an Elmo meme on Facebook, where Elmo is sitting on a child’s potty along with the words “Boss makes a dollar, I make a dime, that’s why I poop on company time.”

Funny. A little bit crass. But funny. And posted on Facebook on a Sunday, when Hidalgo wasn’t at work. So, it makes no sense that his boss, Andy, fired him. But that’s what Hidalgo reported, and a podcast host picked up the story and tweeted it. And then the internet went wild.

The internet going wild is not unusual. Bad bosses getting called out on the internet is a theme. And, frankly, if you do something stupid like (allegedly) firing someone for sharing a meme, you deserve to be called a fool.

What you don’t deserve is false reviews of your business.
