Stone issued an apology for the picture on Wednesday, calling her gesture a ‘visual pun’ and saying she now realizes the picture ‘was in incredibly poor taste’ but an unidentified Facebook user has launched an effort to alert her employer to the outrageous behavior and has been gathering support to get the woman ousted from her job for her disrespect…
…An unknown Facebook user, who is believed to be a veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, created a page on the social networking site, ‘Fire Lindsey Stone.’
