Tweets have appeared on the official HMV account this afternoon which appear to show the true feelings of staff losing their jobs.
We're tweeting live from HR where we're all being fired! Exciting!! #hmvXFactorFiring
There are over 60 of us being fired at once! Mass execution, of loyal employees who love the brand. #hmvXFactorFiring
Sorry we've been quiet for so long. Under contract, we've been unable to say a word, or -more importantly - tell the truth #hmvXFactorFiring
