A woman claims that she exercised her right to free speech when she urinated on an American flag.

However, her actions have angered thousands of American citizens.

Emily Lance of Pennsylvania, asked her friend to take a video as she submerged an American flag in her bathroom and urinated on it.

Lance used a GoGirl, which is a silicone device that allows women to urinate while standing up. She then uploaded the video to Facebook, where it went viral.

She reportedly added the caption: “F*** your nationalism. F*** your country. F*** your stupid F***ing flag.”

She then added a follow up post, saying: “Soiled flag. Fished out of my toilet. Sold to the highest bidder.”

Thousands of people took offense to her actions, and slammed Lance for being disrespectful to the nation and the flag. After receiving death threats, Lance removed the video.

In response she wrote: “Freedom (of speech/expression) means that I’m entitled to do and say as I please, EVEN if you don’t like it, so long as I am not physically hurting someone.

“No, your precious feelings don’t count, that’s your own problem. What don’t you people understand? You’re celebrating freedom while damning me for doing the same. You can’t have it both ways. FREEDOM OR NONE. Practice what you preach or shut up.”

Lance said that her father, who is patriotic and loves the country, suffered backlash from people who targeted his workplace despite the fact that she does not live with him.

She later added: “People are wishing illness, harm, and suffering upon me over a piece of fabric.”

Jeremy Miller took to Facebook to warn Lance that someone put a bounty on her head.

He wrote: “You made it to Craigslist Philly too. There’s a $3,000 bounty on you head. You do realize there’s crazy people out there that are desperate for money, right?”

Lance wrote: “People are willing to murder someone over a flag. It’s so sad that people don’t realize how brainwashed they are.”
