After a Clayton County woman picked up a pizza at a Little Caesars in Riverdale, she returned home to find a surprise on social media — her picture.
An employee at the restaurant posted a picture of her and vulgar messages on Instagram, which has led to both the employee and a manager being fired, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Michelle Duncan told Channel 2 she waited more than 30 minutes after the store tried to give her a pizza someone took out and brought back in.
When she arrived home, her daughter showed her the picture and posts on social media.
“And I'm looking and like, wait a minute — I'm on Instagram,” Duncan told the news station.
Duncan spoke to a manager, who apologized and told Channel 2 both the 16-year-old employee who made the post as well as the manager on duty at the time were fired.
An upper-level manager with Little Caesars told Channel 2 the manager should have been aware the employee was on her phone and posting pictures, which violates company policy.
The store is also giving Duncan 10 free pizzas, the news station reported.
