Woman photographed flipping off Donald Trump fired over 'obscene' display

Woman photographed flipping off Donald Trump fired over 'obscene' display

Juli Briskman gave the middle finger to Donald Trump as his motorcade passed her on her bike in Sterling, Virginia last Friday (Oct. 28).

A woman was sacked from her job after posting a photo to social media showing her giving President Trump or his motorcade the middle finger. News outlets picked up the story when it appeared in a White House pool report.

The woman's name is Juli Briskman.

However Ms Briskman said she had emphasised to management that she had not been in working hours when the photograph was taken and had not mentioned her employers on the social media pages. But they wanted her to "be professional", she said.

Briskman flashing her middle-finger became a viral photo across social media.

She was told that the snap - which Briskman made her profile picture on Twitter and Facebook - violated Akima's social media policy, even though she didn't have the company listed as her place of work anywhere on either platform.

"They said, "We're separating from you, '" Briskman told the Post".

"Basically, you can not have "lewd" or "obscene" things on your social media".

As part of her communications position with the firm, Briskman was in charge of managing Akima's social media accounts during her six-month stint there.

Because Akima is a government contractor, the photo could hurt the company's business, Briskman said they told her. Virginia is an employment-at-will state, which means that an employer can fire "any employee at any time, for any reason, or for no reason", according to the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry website.

According to Briskman, this unidentified colleague had "Akima LLC" as his cover photo on the social media platform. Briskman asked. "How is that fair?"

Akima did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Given the grounds for her termination, it would seem that her decision to post that banner image was what ultimately led to her losing her job.

"He was passing by and my blood just started to boil", she told Huffington Post.

She added she has no regrets and is happy to be an image of protest that resonates with many Americans.
