Private everything, always!

Today, I received an e-mail telling me the job offer I got last week was rescinded. Apparently, the memes I share on my Instagram page are "tasteless" and don’t fit the company’s values. I forgot my profile is public. FML

And this is why you use a psuedonym when you want to be an ass online. If there is anyone actually named Richard Pencil, I apologize for all of the jobs I have cost you.

I don’t think OP has much of a shot winning, because she was offered a job, but had not started. So she wasn’t an employee yet. You also have to remember, depending on which state in the US someone lives, a company can fire you for any reason at any time they wish. I had to let someone go because my boss (the owner) was losing business because of what an employee had posted on their public Facebook page wearing the ID badge of the business.

YDI. I just had to let someone go for the same reason.

what they do on their social media is none of your business. If they show up, do their job well, and don't create problems at work, it is none of your business.

It's nice having a job where the boss cares more about performance and not screwing up than what someone says online.

Recently in court people have sued companies for this stuff and have won,because it's considered stocking in some states and invasion of privacy in others, because your public life has nothing to do with your work life if I was you I'd consult a lawyer.

I don't just play a Major Ahull online, I am one in real life.

You're an idiot.
