MP Jared O'Mara's former staff member then continued to spill the tea about his "selfish, degenerate prick" former boss.
If you're going to fall out with your communications team, maybe change your Twitter password first.
British MP Jared O'Mara learned that lesson the hard way on Tuesday when a staff member quit spectacularly using his former boss's own social media account.
"Comms Team signing off... forever: Jared, you are the most disgustingly morally bankrupt person I have ever had the displeasure of working with," the politician's own Twitter account posted. "You do not care about your constituents. You do not care about anyone but yourself."
"I cannot and will not defend you and your vile, inexcusable contempt for the people who voted you in. You selfish, degenerate prick."
The tweets continued: "My fear is that now (as I quit) the rest of the staff will leave and once again you will close your office and stop helping anyone but still take your wages until you have the decency to call a byelection. Leaving constituents desperate for representation again. No matter if they are having their homes taken away, their liberaties disgraced or being deported because of your inaction."
"Sheffield Hallam deserves so much better than you. You have wasted opportunities which people dare not to even dream of."
The author then revealed his identity, signing off: "Consider this my resignation. Thanks — Gareth Arnold", before finishing off with a mic drop gif.
Just in case anyone wondered about last week's Look North interview - Jared drank a full litre of vodka beforehand at 11am. He's such a bloody laugh. Twat.
The newly unemployed communications expert then switched to a new Twitter account of his own, where he continued to merciless spill tea on his former boss.
He claimed O'Mara missed an 11am interview the previous week because he drank a full litre of vodka beforehand, and that he smoked in his parliamentary office and blamed staff when questioned about it.
"Have you ever known someone sleep in their shoes and have cigarette burns all over their mattress? There is only one person I know that does that. His initial are J and O. Any guesses?" the tweets continued.
Arnold theorized about why O'Mara had yet to do anything about the "self deprecating" tweets — guessing that he was probably still asleep at 8pm — until he realized why the MP had yet to react.
"So, just remembered he needs my phone to login to his Twitter. Shit. Sorry mate. Consider it payback for all the nonsense I said to people defending you," he wrote.
O'Mara was elected to Parliament as a Labour Party candidate in June of 2017, and became a member of the Women and Equalities Select Committee, but resigned just four months later following the publication of offensive comments about women and gay men.
He was suspended from the party after being accused of making racist, transphobic, mysoginistic, sexist and homophobic comments in previous years.
He was reinstated in the Labour Party in July 2018 but quit the party nine days later, sitting as an independent MP since then.
