Buckingham Palace Guard Fired from Royal Wedding After Facebook Meltdown

Bummed because you didn't get an invite to the royal wedding? Take heart, because at least you weren't blacklisted from the event like Scots Guardsman Cameron Reilly.

Then again, you might want to watch what you say on Facebook between now and Friday. The royals apparently don't take kindly to people referring to Kate Middleton as a "posh bitch."

Reilly, an 18-year-old Buckingham Palace guard, was relieved of his royal wedding day duties after posting some rather rude opinions about the bride-to-be:


hur and william drove past me on friday n all a got was a shitty wave while she looked the opposite way from me, stupid stuck up cow am a not good enough for them! posh bitch am totally with u on this 1 who reely gives a f*** about hur

Okay, I don't know about you, but I am completely shocked! Shocked that one of those stalwart Brits wearing the famous bearskin hat and red tunic has such a poor grip on the English language, that is. Reading that is like trying to make sense of an Irvine Welsh book, only without the vivid characters and brilliant controversy.

Not only did he slag on Kate, but he posted some Pakistani racial slurs in an equally incomprehensible dialect, leading one to assume Mr. Reilly enjoys the pleasures of Facebook after a drink or 50.

(It should be noted that he lists "Super-strength lager" and "Causing Trouble" among his interests, and is pictured kissing a bottle of vodka and posing with the fortified wine Buckfast on his page.)

Reilly was supposed to carry out the honor of standing along the procession route from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace during the wedding, but it's safe to say he won't be part of the festivities now. The UK's Ministry of Defence released a statement saying, "In view of the nature of the allegation, it would not be appropriate for the individual to be on parade for The Royal Wedding."

Ooooh, dude, you are SO
Facebook fired.

Do you think it's fair that Reilly was axed from the wedding for his comments?
