United States Of America was celebrating Independence Day on 4th of July but a girl in Philadelphia seemed to be less patriotic. Actually, she posted a video of herself on Facebook, urinating on the American flag. In a very short span of time, she started receiving death threats and even one guy claims that there is a $3,000 bounty on her head via Craigslist ad.
According to the Metro, Emily wrote: “Freedom (of speech/expression) means that I’m entitled to do and say as I please, EVEN if you don’t like it, so long as I am not physically hurting someone – and no, your precious feelings don’t count, that’s your own problem.”
“What don’t you people understand? You’re celebrating freedom while damning me for doing the same. You can’t have it both ways. FREEDOM OR NONE. Practice what you preach or shut the fuck up.”
Most importantly, Emily has raised the question of increasing intolerance in the society. According to her, people are wishing her harm, illness and even willing to kill her over a piece of cloth. Am I gross for peeing on a symbol? LOOK AT YOURSELVES. You people epitomise all that is foul.
One guy named, Jeremy Miller has claimed that there’s a bounty on her head and wrote, “YOU MADE IT TO CRAIGSLIST PHILLY TOO. LOL. THERE’S A $3,000 BOUNTY ON YOUR HEAD. You do realise there are crazy ppl out there that are desperate for money, right?”
