(Scroll down for video) A woman was left humiliated when she accidentally live streamed herself being intimate in a hotel room.

61-year-old Lynn Dorsey was fired after the embarrassing incident. However, she is now suing to get her job back, claiming she was unfairly fired.

Dorsey worked as the tourism director in Webster Parish, Louisiana.

Dorsey was on a business trip when she decided to use the brand new phone, which she received from her job to share sexually explicit acts with her husband.

However, as she recorded the acts at 10:00 p.m., she accidentally pressed the wrong button and went live on Instagram.

The stream was broadcast for 30 minutes on the Instagram page managed by the Webster Parish Convention and Visitors’ Bureau.

Dorsey said that she was unaware of the live stream until she received a call from a reporter at 10:30 p.m., asking her for comment on the incident.

“It was a horrible, honest mistake. I am mortified. I would never send that type of content out intentionally. It was a very private message for my husband. It was a brand new phone and a new Instagram feature. I am a new Instagram user, and unfortunately, I pressed the wrong button,” she said.

In the lawsuit, her attorney states that the Tourism Commission board did not comply with the requirements of the Louisiana open meetings law, when they made the executive decision to fire her.

In her recently filed lawsuit, Dorsey is seeking to get her job back and to have her legal fees paid.
