Ian Poulter Appears to be Trying to get Another Person Fired for a Social Media Post [UPDATE]

Ian Poulter once got a heckler fired from his job after the man shared on Twitter that he had indeed heckled Poulter during the Valspar Championship earlier this year.

Now it seems Poulter is out to achieve the same thing with a man who once delivered a car for him. Poulter recently got upset at a cameraman for moving around behind him to get a good angle of the shot, for those who may have been watching on TV. That sparked some backlash towards Poulter on Twitter, and several memes.

So in true Poulter fashion, he posted the picture above on his Instagram account with the following caption:

ianjamespoulter: This is truly disappointing to read.. Glenn I remember you delivering the car a while back and I have only great experiences from all the drivers at @reliablecarriers. And I was really happy with the service I paid for. The car was delivered as reliable would have expected first class. I guess from now on I will never be using @reliablecarriers ever again to move my vehicles. It’s a good job there are lots of good carrier companies to chose from. It’s saddens me to write this. Why would I ever have this man possibly deliver another vehicle. You think it would be handled in the same manner as the fist one. I don’t think so. Could never take that risk.

Not only did Poulter shame the man, but also mentioned the company he works for and then shared that he would never use that vehicle delivery service with his 227,000 followers on Instagram and his 2.28 million followers on Twitter.

While the man may be wrong for calling Poulter a “dick,” turning around and calling the man out for his opinion and then making sure the man’s boss knows about it is pretty much a dick move.

Poulter may actually be a really nice guy, but sometimes people take things the wrong way and may not like you, but does that make it right to attempt to get everyone who doesn’t like you fired from their job?

UPDATE: Reliable carriers, the car carrier that Glenn Stacey works for, responded to Poulter’s tweet with the following:
