"Boss makes a dollar, I make a dime. That's why I poop on company time."

Cody Hidalgo was an employee at Roman Stone Works in Detroit until a few weeks ago, when he was terminated...because of a meme.

The 23-year-old found a meme of Elmo, sittin' on the potty, singing about pooping at work on his personal Facebook page because he thought it was funny. And then, he got a profanity-laced message from his boss.

A Detroit news station reached out to the company, who claims that Cody was NOT fired and says that they have been receiving death threats. You can read the full statement from the company's lawyer HERE.
