10 People Who Got Fired For Social Media Posts

Australian Miners

A collection of 15 miners working at the Agnew gold mine in Goldfields were all dismissed from their posts and banned from working at any other project with the parent company after they filmed themselves performing the dance craze the Harlem Shake in the mine. According to reports, bosses felt that the behavior was a safety issued and took serious action against those involved.


Johnny Cook

Unlike many of the other people on this list, Johnny Cook wasn’t fired for posting something stupid on social media but rather because he took a stand to protect the students he transported on the school bus. After finding that one of the children was hungry after school because he was not given any lunch as he owed 40 cents, he made a statement on his Facebook profile. When he refused to take it down or apologize to school officials, he lost his job.
