Waitress fired for wanting to “purge” Mexicans over tip

Dear Megan Olson:

In the future, if you have an issue with how a customer tips, please refrain from calling for the genocide of an entire group of people.

Thanks!

A waitress was fired after calling for the “purge” of Mexicans in her rant over a tip.  Megan Olson, formerly of Texas Roadhouse in Greeley, Colo., was upset about a customer not leaving a gratuity and tweeted this out “If we had a real life purge I would kill as many Mexicans as I could in one night”

Word got out about the tweet and her employer was contacted via its Facebook page.  Needless to say, Texas Roadhouse took little time in terminating her employment.

“Our managing partner was actually mowing his lawn when he was alerted,” said company spokesman Travis Doster. “He immediately rushed to the restaurant, met with the employee who posted this disgusting tweet and she was terminated.”

For her part, Megan Olson expressed remorse for her actions and offered this apology:

“I wrote hurtful, inconsiderate, insensitive and careless words and I understand the amount of people I have offended by that. There are no excuses for what I have done. I sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, apologize to everyone for my momentary lack of judgment. I want you all to know that I do not actually feel this way.”

Perhaps she truly has learned her lesson.  If so, good luck.
