LAUREL, Miss. (AP) - A Mississippi Subway restaurant employee has been fired after posting a photo on Facebook that appeared to show her in uniform celebrating the killing of two police officers in Hattiesburg.

Multiple news outlets report Sierra McCurdy, who worked at a Subway in Laurel, wrote “GOT EM” in reference to the Hattiesburg officers on a post accompanied by emojis of a handgun over a photo of herself in a Subway uniform. The post apparently referred to the fatal shootings of 34-year-old Benjamin Deen and 25-year-old Liquori Tate on Saturday. Four people were arrested for the crime and one faces capital murder charges.

McCurdy’s posts created a firestorm on Twitter and many urged Subway to fire her.

Subway responded with a tweet saying the franchise had fired McCurdy and her behavior does not represent company values.
