Pro tip: If you’re seeking drugs, don’t solicit Twitter for help.

“Aspiring mechanic” Sunith Baheerathan, 20, was apparently looking for some pot to get him through the day at a Vaughn, Ontario, auto shop.

Baheerathan, who’s Twitter handle trended locally, tried to brush off the incident.

I just caused a huge outrage on Twitter over one tweet. Y’all really gotta stop taking tweets serious lmao

It’s not the first time York Regional Police have scolded Twitter users for drug use. YRP told off a Vaughn-area woman named Brittany last year. Oddly, she actually offered Baheerathan some words of wisdom.

Update: On Wednesday afternoon,  CBC News confirmed that Baheerathan was no longer employed by Mr. Lube. He’s since deleted his Twitter account.
