A Subway sandwich shop worker sparked outrage on Twitter with her social media posts celebrating Saturday’s killing of two Mississippi cops — and now she’s been fired.
“This behavior is unacceptable & does not represent our brand’s values & ethics,” Subway tweeted Sunday night, in response to the backlash. “The franchise has terminated the employee.”

Sierra “C-Babi” McCurdy, of Laurel, Miss., ultimately lost her job because she praised the cold-blooded murders of Hattiesburg cops Benjamin Deen, 34, and Liquori Tate, 25, after they were gunned down in the line of duty during a routine traffic stop Saturday night.
“2 police officers was shot in hattiesburg tonight…GOT EM,” the Subway employee exulted on Facebook. “We can turn this bxtch into Baltimore real quick….Police take away innocent people lives everyday now & get away w/ it, fxck them…no mercy.”
Twitter users expressed outrage at her remarks — and that the sandwich giant would have a person like that working for them.
“Wow. This piece of trash was celebrating the death of two policeman in Hattiesburg. Your [employee], @Subway,” one person tweeted.
Three suspects have been arrested in connection with the brutal killings. Two have been charged with multiple counts of capital murder, while the third was charged with two counts of accessory after the fact to capital murder.

Authorities have not released a motive for the cold-blooded killings.
