Flags are very important as they represent the country they’re assigned to. Although it may physically appear as just a piece of fabric, it symbolizes an entire nation.
The American represents three eternal principles: liberty, humanity and justice. The American flag is sacred to many of its citizens as it embodies American freedom. That’s why when Emily Lance decided to randomly share a video of herself urinating onto an American flag, numerous people were outraged.
One woman in Pennsylvania has reportedly received death threats.
All the threats came in shortly after she posted a video onto the Internet of herself urinating onto an American flag.
She used a GoGirl device to urinate on the American flag.
The product allows women to urinate standing up and are commonly used by female runners and campers.
Lance originally posted the video onto her Facebook.
Her caption for the video was riddled with cursing words: “F*** your nationalism. F*** your country. F*** your stupid f****** flag.”
Of course, she couldn’t record the video without some mood music.
In the video, you can hear Night Moves by Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band playing faintly in the background.
As you could have expected, the video went viral almost instantly.
It wasn’t long until thousands of people online began posting infuriating comments at her for disrespecting both the nation and the flag.
