    Hell no she shouldnt have been fired…to expect a fan to have not taken a picture & not broadcast it is like telling a peraon there not human..thats what a fan or the average person whose fastinated with a celebrity…who is beyonce? She damn sure aint a god…would it had matter if it was A selfie or random person she took a pic of? Hell no…to be fired? Thats crazy…to lose your source of not be able to provide for tour family because You acted in a form of a fan…fuck that bitch..apparently she forgot where she came from….when nobody knew your ass & wasnt taken pics of shit…celebrities like her think they rule the world…& they treat their fans like shit. She coulda took her aside & talk to her…anything!!! But to have her fired…thats over & beyond ridicoulous….oh so if a gun man came up in there shooting up the place & she used her phone to capture this event….she be a life saver & possibily rewarded…but because its beyonce who rules the world & can just have people fucking fired.. what world do we live in…

  2. Yes, she did deserve to get fired. She exhibited poor judgement on a number of counts: (1) not honoring the integrity of the shopping experience of the customer, regardless of who that customer is; (2) indulging purely personal pursuits (on a public platform, no less) on company time; (3) creating a potential security concern by announcing a celebrity’s location to a social media platform audience. And we don’t even know whether or not she violated any official company policies. More than fan entitlement…more than celebrity privacy…this is about business. She was a particularly poor representation of her store’s brand. And for any company that cares about its brand, that is an offense punishable by termination. I really hope that she exercises better judgement in the future.
