Loudoun County cyclist who flipped off President Trump's motorcade loses her job

Juli Briskman Facebook page

Because Akima is a government contractor, the photo could hurt the company's business, Briskman said they told her. The image is now being used as both her profile and cover picture on Twitter, but on Facebook, she's just featuring it as her cover photo. "So they were calling flipping him off 'obscene'".

However, Briskman isn't convinced, especially given the fact that she wasn't wearing anything or doing anything that could have connected her back to the firm.

"'Basically, you can not have lewd or obscene things in your social media.' So they were calling flipping him off obscene", she added.

Weinstein Hired 'Army of Spies' to Quash Accusations
Farrow has since appeared on television to break down the "international campaign" Weinstein engaged in to silence his accusers. I asked Boies directly whether he hired investigators to impede the Times in 2004, as he did this year.

Juli Briskman, the woman photographed expressing her feelings toward President Trump was recently fired from her job for posting the image of herself to her Facebook account. The photo went viral and social media hailed her as a "she-ro" and hashtags like #Her2020 were created.

People criticized Akima - some on the left directed people on Twitter to complain directly to Akima's offices - accusing the company of infringing on Briskman's right to free speech.

Knowing that people might connect her to Akima, Briskman gave her bosses a heads-up that she was the woman in the photo. "I'm angry and I'm frustrated".

Atlanta entered the game 27th in the National Football League with a -5 turnover margin, and Carolina entered tied for 29th at -7. Newton did a good job not forcing anything and was excellent throwing the ball, including this beauty of a play-action call.

Even though the photo was not taken or shared during working hours, did not make any mention of her employees and was posted on her personal Twitter and Facebook accounts, her employers said they deemed that it violated their social media policies.

Briskman, acknowledging that her moment of fame gave her "an opportunity... to say something", is now planning to work at an advocacy group "that she believes in". But became aware after a few friends thought they recognized her and tagged her in the photo, asking.

Some said that the firing was justified because it was not directly related to her flipping off the president of the United States but rather that she used the image, which showed an obscene gesture on social media.

Carter Page met with Russian government officials during 2016 trip
Instead, he is suggesting that the attorney general be allowed to submit updated written testimony, they said. The documents seem to show George Papadopoulos was the adviser who offered to set up the meeting.

She was only employed at the company for six months before being let go. Does your employer have a similar social media policy? After she admitted to being the woman in the photo, Briskman's studio started getting threatening emails, according to The Washington Post.
