    Last week, a Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100 crashed into a mountainside in Indonesia, killing 45 people.

    After the crash, an Aeroflot flight attendant named Ekaterina Solovyeva took to Twitter to share her very negative feelings on the aircraft. According to the New York Post, it was enough to get her fired.
    Even though the offending tweet was almost immediately deleted, The Post says the full text was "Huh? Did a Superjet crash? Hahaha! This aircraft sucks, it's a pity it wasn't in Aeroflot, that would be one less."
    The offensive Tweet spread quickly and the airline unsurprisingly received a number of complaints.

    it is one thing to think it, it's another to type it up for the whole world to see.
