Another Costly Facebook Mistake 3

By now it’s well known that writing or posting the wrong thing on Facebook can get you fired.  Yet, another example of this came recently when Dan Leone, a west gate chief with the Philadelphia Eagels was fired after posting a negative comment about the team on his Facebook profile.

After former Eagle Brian Dawkins signed with the Denver Broncos as a free agent, Leone wrote, “Dan is [expletive] devastated about Dawkins signing with Denver … Dam Eagles R Retarted!!” on his Facebook page.

Leone was fired by the team a few days later via a phone call even though he had apologized for his comment.

“I shouldn’t have put it up there. I was ticked off, and I let my emotions go, but I didn’t offend any one person or target a specific individual. I was just upset that we lost such a great guy,” he told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Leone had worked for the Eagles the past six years.
