When it comes to social media, we’re used to people getting on each other’s nerves, especially in the midst of a crisis.
We’ve seen this with Donald Trump, who has been repeatedly mocked and ridiculed for his “I Am not the King” slogan.
But we haven’t seen anything quite like the response to a recent post on the social media site that caused a Twitter firestorm.
“What if the best person to ask was, ‘What if we’re not the best?’,” wrote one user, while others said, “Why are we even here?
Why are you even here?”
The post, which was shared thousands of times, was published Monday by a local business and was later removed.
The owner of the business, a small business called “Cajun Restaurant” posted the post in a series of tweets.
“I am not the hero, I am not king, and I am the poor man.
That is all I am.
It’s the truth,” the business owner, who did not want to be named, said in a Facebook post.
“It has become apparent to me that you don’t even realize how much you love your own business until you’ve had your best friend killed.
I am so tired of being the villain.”
The post was shared by a large number of people and many of those people took issue with the comment and the owner of Cajun restaurant, claiming the comment was hateful and discriminatory.
Many people also criticized the owners decision to post the post.
But many people did not take the post seriously, and it was deleted within hours.
“If you think about it, the only people in this world that really matter are those that can get something out of their own mouth,” the owner said in the Facebook post, adding that he is “the only one who really cares.”
“I will not be bullied anymore.
If I need anything, I’m going to find you.
I’ll give you the money, I’ll take care of your kids, and you will have the best time in the world.”
It was not the first time the business had gone public about its struggles.
In August, the owners of the Louisiana restaurant, The Cajuns, announced they were closing and they would be hiring someone to be the new manager.
“This is a business that’s been in the business for 25 years and I can honestly say, it’s been a blessing in disguise,” said Cajurons owner, Mike Mascaro.
“But, it is a job that comes with responsibility and responsibility comes with hard work.
That’s what we’re doing here.
I’m the CEO, I’ve been doing this for 25+ years.
It took me two years to get here.
We’ll be a little bit of a different business.”
Cajuuns owners business has been the target of threats and lawsuits in recent years, including one lawsuit that was dismissed in May of this year.
A Louisiana judge in July also ordered Cajousts owners to pay $5,000 in back wages and expenses.
