Fired For Dropping the F-Bomb

A social media employee, responsible for posting an expletive on Chrysler’s Twitter account, has been fired.

The NMS (New Media Strategies) employee tweeted, “I find it ironic that Detroit is known as the #motorcity and yet no one here knows how to f—ing drive,” apparently after enduring a rough drive in Detroit traffic. 

According to WJBK:

Chrysler officials responded by saying, “After further investigation, it was discovered that the statement was issued by an NMS employee, who has since been terminated. Chrysler Group and its brands do not tolerate inappropriate language or behavior, and apologize to anyone who may have been offended by this communication.”

Some have commented that firing an employee for this is too harsh.  What are your thoughts?  Although many may agree that harsh language on a corporate Twitter page is unacceptable, is this offense serious enough to warrant a dismissal?
