Briskman decided when she went into work on Monday that she would tell her employer, government contractor Akima LLC, about the photo, but by Tuesday, she had been informed that she violated the company's social media policy because she used the image on her Twitter and Facebook pages as her profile picture.

She has contacted the American Civil Liberties Union about the situation, according to the Post.

Ms Briskman has now said she was sacked from her job at government contractor Akima LCC where she worked in marketing and communications. "So they were calling flipping him off 'obscene.'" Akima apparently believed the photo could reflect badly upon their business. "In some ways, I'm doing better than ever", Briskman said.

Given the grounds for her termination, it would seem that her decision to post that banner image was what ultimately led to her losing her job.

Briskman chose to tell Akima's HR department what was happening when she went to work on Monday. She was thinking about the devastation in Puerto Rico, about the carnage of last month's mass-shooting in Las Vegas, and about deportations. The government contractor she worked for called it 'obscene'. Every day, the internet is filled with people saying whatever they please about Donald Trump, but few get to deliver it right to his motorcade window. "I'm considering, he's at the damn green once more", she proceeded.
