Manhattan Woman Fired Over Facebook Post

KSAL StaffSeptember 26, 2013

A Manhattan woman says she was fired and has received death threats after posting comments on Facebook that criticized the military.

Meagan May posted a comment in September that she did not consider the military heroic and criticizing military personnel for expecting discounts at businesses.

May says that she posted the comments because she believes soldiers receive too much special treatment. She said her employer, , Carmike Cinemas in Manhattan, fired her after she posted the comment.

Carmike also posted on May’s page that her comments did not reflect the attitude of the company. Carmike officials said they fully support and honor military personnel.

May says she isn’t backing down because she thinks she should be able to post whatever she believes on Facebook.

May says she was a manager at the theater and was promoted to that position only a week before her termination.

Aside from being fired from her job, some of the comments made on her page include death threats, what she calls lies about her personal life, and even comments about her daughter.

Now that the comment generated so much reaction, May says Carmike Cinemas fired her.  They even posted on her original comment.
