A woman in United States got fired from her job for showing middle finger to President Donald Trump.

In Briskman's case - assuming we have the full set of facts, which is always a unsafe assumption - she would have some grounds to pursue a wrongful termination suit.

Briskman had worked in marketing and communications at Akima for just over six months. However, soon her bosses called her into a meeting and informed her that she had violated company's social media policy by posting the photo as her profile picture on Facebook and Twitter.

"They said, "We're separating from you, ' " Briskman is quoted as saying".

Briskman told the Huffington Post the reason she was sacked was because their employees are not allowed to post content to their social media accounts that may be considered "lewd" or "obscene" and according to Ms. Briskman, her gesture to President Trump's motorcade was considered "obscene". The profile that he used to make that comment clearly identifies him as an employee at Akima.

"I'm thinking DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients are getting kicked out".

After her picture went viral, she reported the matter to the HR department of her company, Akima, a Virginia-based federal contractor.

Briskman added that she is planning to look for a new job at an organization she believes in, such as Planned Parenthood, and that she is proud of the fact that she is part of protest imagery that is resonating so much with Americans right now.
