Mom Loses Job for Posting This Message About Cops to her Facebook Page

The Oklahoma City mom who made headlines last year after her her potty-training toddler urinated outside in her mother’s front yard is in the news again.

Ashley Warden, a former Chili’s restaurant waitress, posted a picture and comment disparaging of local police officers to her Facebook wall, causing a viral uproar that resulted in her losing her job, KOTV-TV reports.

The post read: “Stupid Cops better hope I’m not their server FDP” (“FDP” is shorthand for “f**k da police”). Unsurprisingly, her post sparked outrage, leading many to contact the restaurant, the report adds.

The picture Warden posted were of three Oklahoma County Sheriff department deputies who had just finished volunteering as escorts for a funeral held for a Catholic priest.

“This is what she posts and what she chooses to post during Law Enforcement Week when we are honoring those who have died in service to our citizens, I think that’s pathetic,” Sheriff John Whetsel told KOTV-TV.

“I was extremely disappointed that here are these dedicated public servants got called names and then get threatened by a lady that doesn’t have a clue about who they are or what they do or the service they provide.”

Watch KOTV-TV’s report:

Piedmont Police Officer Scott Gibbons saw the post, according to KOCO-TV, and re-posted it, saying he “felt the need to let other members of the community know that they might reconsider where they eat.”

Chili’s issued a statement that confirming Warden had been fired, citing its Social Media Guidelines, which ask team members to “always be respectful of our guests and to use proper judgment when discussing actions in the work place.”
