Recently, a photo of a woman cyclist riding beside US President Donald Trump’s Motorcade, showing him the middle finger had gone viral on social media.

The moment was captured by a White House photographer, who was travelling along with the President, when he was returning from his golf course in Virginia.

Soon the hashtag ‘#2020’ followed with a numerous jokes & tweets with many liberals actually celebrating the incident.

However, the reaction to the photograph, turned unfortunate for Juli Briskman, the woman in the picture.

Woman’s employer, Govt. contractor Akima LLC, didn’t seem very impressed with the action of their employee & decided to fire her over the same.

In an interview Juli Briskman stated that she, “was stunned that someone had taken a picture of her giving Trump the middle finger.”

Once she found out about the circulation of her photograph, she chose to inform the HR dept. of her company & explain the incident to them. However, soon her bosses called her into a meeting & informed her that she had violated company’s social media policy by posting that photo as her Profile Picture on Facebook & Twitter.

“They said, ‘We’re separating from you,’ ” said Juli Briskman. “Basically, you can’t have ‘lewd’ or ‘obscene’ things in your social media. So they were calling flipping him off obscene,” reported HuffPost.

Juli tried to reason with the company emphasizing that she was not on duty when the incident occurred & that her social media pages do not mention her employer, & was informed that because her company was a govt. contractor, her picture could ‘hurt their business’.
