Ex-Hotel Worker

I Was Fired for

PRAISING Jennifer Aniston

An ex-employee of a New Mexico hotel claims he was FIRED for talking about Jennifer Aniston to hotel guests while she was staying on the property ... even though all he said was that she's "very sweet."

A man named Terry Siegler says he worked at the Encantado Resort in Santa Fe as a shuttle bus driver -- but as of Monday, he was no longer employed ... because he allegedly violated the hotel's confidentiality policy regarding famous people.

Terry tells us, the alleged violation occurred last week when he was shuttling random hotel guests who had just seen Jennifer Aniston in the hotel spa.

Terry says the guests asked if he had seen Aniston, and he replied yes, telling them Aniston is "very sweet and much more petite than I thought."

According to Terry, the guests then went back to the hotel where they openly yakked about their discussion with him -- and a member of Jen's camp overheard them, believing Terry was divulging information about Aniston to guests.

We're told Aniston's pal reported the incident to hotel management -- which then fired Terry this week, citing the celebrity policy violation.

Terry says it's part of his job to engage guests and be friendly -- claiming, "They brought [Jennifer] up first ... Was I supposed to deny it?"

Terry says he's crushed after losing his $30,000-a-year job, but he's still unsure if he'll sue for wrongful termination.

The GM of the resort tells TMZ, "I cannot confirm anything about our employees but I will say that we have a very strict confidentiality policy and we do enforce those policies."

OH MAN, TOTAL F*CKERY AT BEST... DUDE SHOULD OF GOT A VERBAL WARNING FIRST TIME. MOST COMPANIES HAVE A 3 STRIKE RULE UNLESS YOU COMMIT AN ACT THAT BORDERS ON CRIMINAL INTENT. WHAT USUALLY HAPPENS IN THESE HE SAID/SHE SAID CASES IS ONE SIDE (ACTRESS, THE C*NT) CHANGES THE STORY 10X, EXAGGERATES, AND LIES THE UTMOST TO CREATE THE PETRIFIED "VICTIM" STORY. THE HOTEL FEARING A LAME ASS LAWSUIT CRAWLS IN A HOLE AND FIRES THE GUY. TOTAL ASS ****S... #TRUTH!!

She's such a poser! She's got everyone believing she's America's sweetheart and she just a C##T, a S##ty actress (All of her movies just SUCK) and she is no where near being the most beautiful woman in the world, (Angie is though LOL!!!) like some publication claimed she was last year. 80% of her face is plastic, then add the fake boobs etc….I wouldn't doubt if she has ass implants LOL!!! They took everything they shave off of her huge nose and packed it in her ass! There are quite a few articles out there about how once she got famous she F##ked over old roommates etc...

He was supposed to keep his mouth shut. Don't confirm or deny anything. Just shut up. Why is that so difficult for so many people?

It's called confidentiality and discretion. You don't say anything.

All he really had to do was apologize and flat-out say he'd lose his job if he talked about any guest's stay -- I've heard workers at restaurants and stores etc. reply to customers before that they'd lose their jobs if they did something whatever it was that would get them fired.

It amazes me how people are quick to blame her, when the employee violated the hotel's strict confidentiality agreement. It wouldn't have mattered if he had talked about her or another guest, he violated work policy that he was well aware of and got fired. Maybe in his next job, he'll keep his yap shut. Most companies who have clients have strict confidentiality policies, unless you work at Taco Bell.
