A former security guard in Johannesburg, South Africa has lost his job because his boss learned from Facebook that he’s gay.
Alexander Bruce was working as a security guard at a private school. When his contract ended, he took a short medical leave, but was promised employment upon return. But when he came back, he heard harsh words from his supervisor.
'He told me that he came out of a meeting and said, “We decided not to renew your contract. We went onto your Facebook profile and you're a moffie [a South African anti-gay slur] and we can't employ moffies at the school. It's school policy”,' he said.
'I'm embarrassed. Not because I'm gay but it's a slap in the face. What does my sexual orientation have to do with my job?'
Your guess is as good as mine, man.
