Rochelle Robinson has lost her job, but not her spirit, after posting a questionable selfie to Instagram.
Oh, no. (via The Daily Dot)
If you've ever worked in the service industry, you know it's quite true that you will be interacting with a large number of very rude white people. Rude people absolutely exist amongst all races, but white people frequently exhibit the most exhilarating combination of entitlement and self-involvement that can make waiting on them a nightmare. I once had a white lady watch me burn myself horribly with soup and, instead of asking if I was okay, said, "That reminds me, the special soup yesterday was lukewarm."
Ms. Robinson was working her job at the Brookfield Zoo and decided to take a selfie. Sometimes a few likes can carry you through the day, right? Along with her post she wrote the following:
"Wassup y'all? At work serving these rude ass white people."
While her friends might have just had a chuckle over her choice of caption or given a knowing sigh, Rochelle Robison also tagged the zoo, which meant anyone looking at photos of the place would see her photo. Then they'd think, "Hey, she's talking about me! I am OUTRAGED."
As you can imagine, everyone lost their shit:
