Single Mom Fired From Job Before She Even Starts Due To Facebook Post (Photo)

Kaitlyn Walls, a 27-year-old single mother from The Colony, Texas, recently landed a new job at a local day care center, but she never got the chance to clock in.

After she secured the job, she posted on Facebook: “I start my new job today, but I absolutely hate working at day care. Lol, it’s all good, I just really hate being around a lot of kids.” In response, people started posting hateful comments. "I had all these girls attacking me because I don’t want to be around a lot of kids all the time,” Walls told CBSDFW.

Though a lot of the comments have been removed, some people called her a “dumb *****” or said she had “Bubonic plague.”

 

Walls was upset by the response. “I actually cried. It really hurt because I wasn’t trying to offend anybody,” she said.

The insults were the least of Walls’ troubles; when the day care operators heard about her Facebook post, she was told not to come into work.

“I really needed it really bad,” she said. “I’m a single mom... trying to get out on my own.”

Walls said she’s learned her lesson. “I’m not going to post anything like it ever. No matter how I feel.” Walls later wrote on Facebook, “Oh man I made a big mistake. I’m so sad. I feel like a failure here looking at my daughter crying because I’m afraid that I’m not going to be able to find a job because of my own stupidity.”
