A Kansas woman recently lost her job over anti-military comments posted on her Facebook page. Meagan May’s post included statements such as “War is not ‘heroic,’” and to “stop demanding a military discount everywhere you go.” May was then fired from Carmike Cinemas.
May claims she should be able to say what she wants on Facebook and many agree. Does your employer really have the right to fire an employee based off their personal thoughts posted on social media?
Carmike Cinemas even went as far as to post on May’s page that they did not agree with her statement and they fully support the military.
