MANSFIELD, Texas (PIX11) — A teen in Texas was fired from her job at a pizza place — before her first day of work. And it was all because of a tweet.

The teenager, only known as “Cella” on Twitter, was getting ready to start her first day at Jet’s Pizza in Mansfield, Texas, on Saturday, when she tweeted her true feelings about starting the new job.

“Ew I start this f–k a– job tomorrow,” @Cellla­ tweeted on Friday along with seven thumbs down emojis.

The owner of the restaurant, Robert Waple, was alerted to the tweet by another employee and reportedly fired Cella immediately — over Twitter.

“No you don’t start that FA job today! I just fired you! Good luck with your no money, no job life!” @Robertwaple tweeted on Saturday — the first time he used his account since 2009.

Cella didn’t seem to take the news too hard — “I got fired over Twitter,” she tweeted with three laughing emojis.
