Its so strange to me that people still post things on their Facebook page that gets them fired. People will have their coworkers that will rat them out, their page public, or just flat ot don't give a fuck about what they post.
This 32 year old guy Ryan Uhler of Florida (of course!) thought he was being funny when he posted a comment comparing the legalization of gay marriage to marrying his dog. He wrote “How is marrying a dog different if you love them? Today I hope we can focus on doggy-style love. I love my dog Rocco, and he loves me. Hopefully one day we can be married.” I just heard all of you sigh heavily.
Soon after his job, Grace Investment Group, laid his ass off as a digital marketing specialist. Hmm. This whole thing is starting to sound like a terrible ploy to advertise himself. Sure there are better ways to do it. “I was blindsided. I didn't think anyone there knew how to use Facebook.” Oh, I see he's a smart ass too. He said that he posts things on his Facebook to get reactions out of people and to get conversations going. That is all fine and well but obviously he didn't know his audience well and now his ass is fired.
“I really didn't want to offend. I have gay people I know and love and I wouldn't want to offend them, but they know my sense of humor.” Sounds like the ol' “I'm not racist I have Black friends!” line. His job said he was fired because they weren't cool with him alluding to banging his pet dog. The company doesn't have to really explain why they fired him because Florida is an at will state which means you can be shit-canned with no explanation given. Uhler doesn't think he was fired because of the joke though. “It wasn't about that at all. It's about loving a dog. People have told me, 'I have a dog and I'd make that joke too.'”
He also gave a warning for everyone. “The reason I'm coming forward about this is that I don't want anyone to make the same mistake I did about posting jokes like this on Facebook.” He is married by the way. To a woman. I'm sure she wakes up looking at him regretting her decision to be with a guy that would be this damned stupid. By the way, I checked his page and the shit is still wide open. Some people just never learn.
