Facebook remark teenager is fired

Details at the BBC

The headline pretty much says it all. The company is Ivell Marketing. The remark was that her job was boring. She didn’t mention the company’s name.

Here’s my favorite bit of pseudo-justification from the company:

“Had Miss Swann put up a poster on the staff notice board making the same comments and invited other staff to read it there would have been the same result.”

Well yeah, had Miss Swan bla bla bla ….

But she didn’t did she? That’s a completely hypothetical situation. You might as well say, had Miss Swan shown her nickers to the Prince of Wales he might have gotten a chuckle out of it.

That statement was made by Steve Ivell. Now that I think about it, his statement is pretty consistent with market practices.

Hey Dudes! Wouldn’t it be awesome if some hypothetical hot women came onto you?? That would be so sweet!! Here, buy this deodorant.
