Single Mom Loses Her New Job Over A Facebook Post (Video)

| by Amanda Andrade-Rhoades

Kaitlyn Walls, a 27-year-old single mother from The Colony, Texas, recently landed a new job at a local day care center, but she never got the chance to clock in.

After she secured the job, she posted on Facebook: “I start my new job today, but I absolutely hate working at day care. Lol, it’s all good, I just really hate being around a lot of kids.” In response, people started posting hateful comments. "I had all these girls attacking me because I don’t want to be around a lot of kids all the time,” Walls told CBSDFW.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

Though a lot of the comments have been removed, some people called her a “dumb *****” or said she had “Bubonic plague.”

Walls was upset by the response. “I actually cried. It really hurt because I wasn’t trying to offend anybody,” she said.

The insults were the least of Walls’ troubles; when the day care operators heard about her Facebook post, she was told not to come into work.

“I really needed it really bad,” she said. “I’m a single mom... trying to get out on my own.”

Walls said she’s learned her lesson. “I’m not going to post anything like it ever. No matter how I feel.” Walls later wrote on Facebook, “Oh man I made a big mistake. I’m so sad. I feel like a failure here looking at my daughter crying because I’m afraid that I’m not going to be able to find a job because of my own stupidity.”
