Outrage ensued after Lindsey Stone’s co-worker snapped a picture of Stone raising her middle finger and apparently shouting near an Arlington National Cemetery sign that asked for “Silence and Respect.”
The two took the photo during a paid trip from LIFE, a non-profit organization that provides housing for people with disabilities in the Cape Cod area.
“We wish to announce that the two employees recently involved in the Arlington Cemetery incident are no longer employees of LIFE,” a statement posted to LIFE’s Facebook page said. “Again, we deeply regret any disrespect to members of the military and their families. The incident and publicity has been very upsetting to the learning disabled population we serve.”
