Social media may be free, but a single mother from The Colony is paying a heavy price for using it.
Kaitlyn Walls lost her new job at a nearby daycare center, before she ever started it.
The single mum was fired from her new job at a daycare centre after she posted on Facebook that she "hated" it.
Kaitlyn Walls, 27, who criticised the position just hours before she started her first shift, was hit by a barrage of insults from other users.
She posted: "I start my new job today, but I absolutely hate working at day care."
And, after her bosses got wind of the post, they told her not to bother coming in.
Kaitlyn, from Texas, told CBS: "I really needed it really bad. I'm a single mom trying to get out on my own.
"I had all these girls attacking me because I don't want to be around a lot of kids all the time,"
Kaitlyn was branded "dumb" by some users and was compared to the "bubonic plague".
She said she wasn't trying to offend anybody and maintains she doesn't hate kids
