I'm terribly confused. Are you celebrating the death of two human beings because of they were cops or are you just defending the actions of this misguided individual?

so one bad egg says something negative on social media and they hold the entire company responsible? who is calling for the boycott? sounds like a dirty tactic to quell dismay about police tactics lately. soon it will be illegal to say anything at all about them. no one crying about free speech now?

Though not subways fault, so disgusting her comments about 2 good men with families and loved ones!

I didn't realize the article was about me.

So many of you probably want her fired, and then complain when she goes on the dole until she dies because no one would hire her thanks to Google. Mission Accomplished.

She's obviously not the sharpest tool in the shed, but I guess "freedom of speech" doesn't apply when you say something insensitive about slain cops (as opposed to Islam). Be consistent, either way, please.

For the record, I think this lady's postings are appalling.

I love one of the tweets though - hey subway, I am going to tell the O'Reilly Factor - oh, no, not that, please.

Blaming an employer for an employee's public statements (all social media with your name on it is PUBLIC) is proper.

When I eat out, I expect the establishment to have gotten rid of their trash.

Most employers would terminate an employee for posting something that will bring negative attention, especially while wearing their uniform.

Boycotting subway would imply that you're punishing the whole company for the ridiculous actions of one low level employee. Like the whole company must have a toxic culture that shares this idiot's mindset.

He makes sandwiches for a living, do you really expect him to be a model, upstanding citizen? Who cares? In other news, people who clean toilets do drugs. Boycott everybody!
