DiBona’s insensitivity surely cost her her paycheck. Via Twitter, Hyley unleashed a stream of hate-infused posts regarding racism and the Charleston shooting.

Even afterwards, she didn’t appear to be apologetic, Charleston shooting or not.

Twitter users started investigating Hyley’s place of employment. In her photos, she wore a Regal Cinemas uniform, indicating she worked for the company. Several people began complaining to the media company.

And after evaluating her racist tweets and DiBona’s own messages about how Twitter and her professional life don’t cross, the company released an apologetic statement.

Regal Cinemas statement rectified the Hyley DiBona situation.

“The individual [Hyley DiBona] does not represent Regal Entertainment Group. Her comments are offensive and she has engaged in behavior that violates everything which Regal stands for.

“No representative from Regal has in any way consented or acknowledged her or the continuation of her employment. The alleged text from her GM is false.

“Rest assured that no Regal Entertainment Group guest, regardless of which Regal you frequent, will ever need to worry about any individual being employed by Regal that engages in such conduct.”

As reported by the Independent, Ken Thewes, the company’s Chief Marketing Officer — in a confirmation to the statement — also added that they don’t tolerate that type of behavior.

She used to work for a Regal Theaters in Las Vegas. According to the company, she’s no longer there.

However, she has noted that she also works at a local Hooters as well. What will happen there?

Hyley DiBona‘s account is now private.

Another Hyley account was created, in which it tweeted, “Yes, I did get fired.” This one may be a fake, as she still maintains the original — too, DiBona’s Twitter is private for a reason. She may not have wanted it confirmed.

However, you be the judge. What are your thoughts? Do you think Ms. DiBona will have trouble finding a job? Feel free to share in the comments below.
