Man Sacked From Job For Liking A Facebook Photo

27 year old Troy Garrod, was sacked from the job he held for over four years after he clicked the ‘like’ button on a Facebook picture. He said he was relaxing at home when he noticed a colleague had uploaded a photo of a jumper with five wolves printed on the back. Along with over 70 other people he ‘liked’ the bizarre picture and thought nothing more of it.

But days later, he received a text informing him that he had been sacked from his job at the UK’s leading book wholesaler.

This is the photo he liked

A female colleague uploaded the photo with the caption: “OMG I’m f**king crying…. I’m sure there’s a wolf fleece appreciation page pahahaha”.

The picture, taken inside one of the company’s warehouses, was ‘liked’ by scores of people. Three days after it was uploaded Troy received a text out of the blue informing him that he had been sacked.
He was told he “bullied” the jumper’s owner by ‘liking’ the “inappropriate” photograph.

Troy said: “I didn’t know what the photo meant but everyone else who worked there was liking it so I just joined in. When I received the text saying I’d been sacked I couldn’t believe it.

“I felt really hurt and angry and all my former colleagues think what happened is ridiculous.”
