A picture of a women faking a yell (I hope she was faking) next to a sign asking for quiet and flipping off the camera in Arlington Cemetary is going around. Not only that, but it has her name and where she's from.
People are posting over and over on her workplaces facebook about it calling for her to be fired and taking out their anger there (her's is private). The organization is a charity.
Is this acceptable behavior?

Do you have a link so I can see it. I haven't had this show up yet.
Wow that chick is a real piece of work, I am not sure how anyone could even begin to think that would be funny at any cemetery.
Again, when are people going to figure out that Facebook is not a good place to put up pictures that could get you in trouble?

I know right?
But I think it's wrong to blow up the charity's page like that. Especially since the people who benefit from it might be confused because I'm sure they won't be able to see why someone they like is hated by so many.
It's a gross picture and like the other debates we've agreed that fb photos and negative responses to things you do can warrant disciplinary action including firing (I think we did...I know I felt that way although I think some others didn't)
She's a jerk. I'm sad to say she is from a nearby town that DH grew up in. I'm embarrassed.
But again, in what universe would some thing like this be funny? My paternal grandparents are buried in a VA cemetery, the environment there is always very stoic, and respectful. Both of those interned there and the people that are visiting loved ones. My other grandparents are buried in a public cemetery and people are respectful there also, but will leave things on headstones and such

I get what you are saying Lillie on this. They are innocent and people are posting on their business page and distracting from their business. I get that.
I agree that this should not be funny. Some of the comments make me sad like "typical mas*hole*. We can be but not on stuff like this. She's on her own.
Ugh.... while certainly she has freedom to behave like this, I do believe that actions have consequences. From what I read within the comments now on the charity's (her employer) Facebook page, the outrage calling for her head (or rather her job) is due to the claim that she was at Arlington on "company business." IF that claim is true, then I could see disciplinary action of the level of firing both her and the fellow employee taking the picture. Supposedly she is a manager, and as such, her actions while on company business, certainly do reflect on the company's image.
Now, if she was NOT on company business, then while I would find her actions reprehensible, I think at that point it would fall on whether the company has a policy governing personal social media.
ITA with those that are still left shaking their heads that people STILL do not get that posting pics of stupidity will likely blow up in their faces.
Going after her employer to fire her seems vengeful. How many of these people complaining even have any relationship with the business she works at?
I get being offended and detesting what she did or even her, but i don't see the reason to try to make her lose her job. To be clear, i don't think its any violation of freedom of speech or whatever for people to be complaining to her employer...i just think they are lacking emotional control and their own actions are not admirable.
Everyone wants to meddle in everyone elses' business and be the one to get to 'teach them a lesson'
how about she's just a douchebag and they move on with their own lives
I agree with that too Kim. I would never post on her employer's site calling for her firing. Not my business.
