One Boston College student is learning that lesson the hard way.

Reports: Boston College student’s Facebook brag costs family $80,000

It might be the costliest status update in Facebook history.

According to a Miami Herald report, an $80,000 settlement in an age-discrimination case was thrown out after Dana Snay, identified by Yahoo! as a Boston College student, bragged about the settlement on Facebook.

Yahoo! reports that Snay’s father, Patrick Snay, sued Gulliver Preparatory School in Miami after his contract was not renewed. One provision of the settlement, however, was that Patrick Snay was forbidden from discussing the case.

According to the Herald report, Snay told his daughter about the settlement and she then bragged to her Facebook followers: “Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT.”

When the school found out about the Facebook post, its lawyers appealed the settlement — and it was tossed out, according to the report.
