Subway fired a worker who celebrated the killings of two police officers in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, namely Sierra “C-Babi” Mccurdy‘s social media posts that heralded the fatal shootings of Benjamin Deen and Liquori Tate on Saturday.
Sierra C-Babi Mccurdy reportedly posted the messages applauding the police killings while wearing her Subway uniform. The Mississippi Subway restaurant where Mccurdy worked is located in Laurel, about 30 miles away from Hattiesburg.
“Two police officers shot tonight in Hattiesburg,” Sierra Mccurdy tweeted. “GOT EM,” she added and then added graphics of a gun and a laughing emoji. C-Babi Denell Senshala has not yet commented publicly about the Laurel Subway firing or the backlash over her social media posts that angered thousands.
“We can turn this bxtch into Baltimore real quick,” Sierra Mccurdy posted on Facebook. “Police take away innocent people lives everyday now & get away w/ it, fxck them…[no mercy].”
Subway reportedly received thousands of messages on Twitter and Facebook demanding a response to the Sierra C-Babi Mccurdy posts. Some of the social media posts called for a nationwide Subway boycott. By the following evening, Mccurdy had been fired from the Mississippi Subway restaurant.
“This kind of behavior is unacceptable and does not represent the values and ethics of our brand,” a statement by a Subway spokesman read. “The unfortunate choice of one individual should not reflect on the more than 400,000 honest, hardworking Sandwich Artists worldwide. The franchisee has terminated the employee, effective immediately.”
Sierra C-Babi Mccrudy has now made both her Instagram and Facebook social media accounts private.
Four individuals have now been arrested in the Benjamin Deen and Liquori Tate police shootings. The murder of the law enforcement officers were the first cop killings in Hattiesburg in three decades.
Marvin Banks, 29, and Joanie Calloway, 22, have each been charged with two counts of capital murder in the Hattiesburg police shootings. Marvin Banks’ brother, Curtis Banks, 26, has been charged with two counts of accessory after the fact of capital murder. Cornelius Clark, 28, was charged with obstruction of justice.
