Woman shows Trump the middle finger, loses job The marketing and communications specialist said she would do it again.

It was a gut reaction, she said, raising the middle finger at US president Donald Trump as his motorcade passed her bicycle in Virginia.

β€œHe was passing by and my blood just started to boil,” Juli Briskman was quoted as saying by the Huffington Post.

Her gesture was captured by a photographer traveling with the motorcade and, needless to say, the image went viral on social media platforms in no time. They celebrated her as a hero and an impulsive action made her an online sensation.

The marketing and communications specialist said she would do it again.

However, one set of people were not definitely pleased - the chiefs of the Virginia-based company where she worked. Her bosses had a problem with her using the now-viral photo as her profile pic on Twitter and Facebook.

And a month after her 'heroic act' on the road, the US woman found herself out of job. Social media reacted again and pleas flooded online to help find a job for the courageous woman.
