GREELEY, Colo. – A Colorado waitress has been fired after a post on social media.

According to KMGH, Megan Olson was angry that a customer at Texas Roadhouse did not leave her a tip, so she took to Twitter to vent.

“If we had a real life purge I would kill as many Mexicans as I could in one night,” Olson allegedly wrote.

Immediately, customers began complaining to the restaurant, who then took action.

“Our managing partner was actually mowing his lawn when he was alerted,” said company spokesman Travis Doster. “He immediately rushed to the restaurant, met with the employee who posted this disgusting tweet and she was terminated.”

Afterward, Olson apologized on Facebook, saying she wrote “hurtful, inconsiderate, insensitive and careless words” and apologized for her “momentary lack of judgement.”
