Woman in Viral Video Who Pretended to Board Up a Business Gets Fired From Job

Life comes at you fast. 🤣

Having garnered nearly 28 million views on Twitter, there's a good chance you've seen the wildly cringe clip of the woman who takes a photo with a man boarding up a business in Santa Monica, California as if she were helping, only to hand his power drill back and leave in a Mercedes-Benz.

"Thank you so much," she says. "Lolz, boyfriends of Instagram." Oh, no.

Unsurprisingly, many Twitter users could only watch in disbelief at this next level display of fakeness.

Actress Ava DuVernay summed things up with a relatable tweet: "You know what? I’m... I think I’m gonna put Twitter away for a few minutes before I throw this phone across the room." She was later quote-tweeted by LeBron James, who was also furious.

Well, it turns out that this masked woman named Fiona Moriarty-McLaughlin, formerly @factswithfiona on Twitter, is a senior student at UC Santa Barbara and used to be a political commentary intern writer for the Washington Examiner.

The key phrase is used to, as it was reported about 24 hours after her stunt that she had been let go by the publication. Almost too good to be true.

Her social media accounts were also deleted earlier this week along with her author page on the Examiner site, which you can see above.

She once claimed in her Twitter bio, "I'm just chasing the facts." Now, all Moriarity-McLaughlin is chasing is a job. That's a fact, fasho.
