A Mississippi Subway restaurant worker has been fired by the company after going on Facebook to praise the deaths of two officers who were shot and killed during a traffic stop Saturday night.

“Two police officers shot tonight in Hattiesburg. GOT EM,” read a post by Sierra McCurdy, accompanied with a photo of her smiling in a Subway employee uniform and icons depicting handguns and laughter.

Another post said “Police take away innocent people lives everyday now & get away w/ it , f—- them . . . (no mercy),according to the New York Daily News.

Four suspects have been arrested in the shootings of Benjamin Deen, 34, and Liquori Tate, 25.

McCurdy’s Facebook page has since been locked, The Clarion-Ledger reports.

Subway, which saw the posts, said “this kind of behavior is unacceptable and does not represent the values and ethics of our brand.

“The unfortunate choice of one individual should not reflect on the more than 400,000 honest, hardworking Sandwich Artists worldwide. The franchisee has terminated the employee, effective immediately,” a Subway spokesperson said in an email to the newspaper.
