Default so...i have an interview but it might be awkward

i have an interview with a self driving company...only my former manager at uber works there. i was talking to a former worker from uber and he told me, "dude, alex works there". checked his FB, and sure enough "alex started working at x company in july"....faaak

he knows i got fired from uber. should i reach out to him on fb and be like, "do me a solid". he was a cool dude, about my age. he wasn't the one who fired me, he actually tried to keep me onboard but it was corporate lawyers who made the decision.

this company pays $24/hr and the recruiter said i had this in the bag. i just need to show up with enthusiasm and pretend to have passion for that company (she legit said that lmao).

I would have to think hes referring to working at the corporate location, in which... of course they would.
