Caity Weaver became the latest Gawker Media staffer to accept a buyout from the company Tuesday, announcing her departure on Twitter.
When I started at Gawker 3 years ago, "Bye, Felicia" wasn't even a thing. But now it is and I'm leaving so bye, Felicia!!!!

According to KnowYourMeme, “Bye Felicia” is a dismissive farewell that has its origins in the 1995 comedy “Friday.”
When reached by Poynter for comment, Weaver confirmed she was taking the buyout.
“Yes, I’m accepting the buyout and also GO EAGLES!” she said.
