The non-profit where Lindsey Stone and Jamie Schuh worked yesterday no longer employs the two women behind the photo we first highlighted yesterday. LIFE- Living Independently Forever, announced the following on Facebook:
We wish to announce that the two employees recently involved in the Arlington Cemetery incident are no longer employees of LIFE. 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. To protect our residents, any comments, however well-intentioned, will be deleted. We appreciate your concern and understanding as we focus on the care of our community.
The Boston Herald is reporting the following:
Lindsey Stone — the Plymouth woman taking an online beating for posting a photo of herself flipping the bird at Arlington National Cemetery on Facebook — has lost her job.
“Lindsey resigned and we accepted her resignation,” LIFE Inc. CEO Diane Enochs told the Herald tonight.
LIFE Inc. of Hyannis — a Cape Cod nonprofit that helps adults with special needs — announced tonight that Stone, along with the woman who snapped the offending photo, are not working there.
They don’t mention whether Schuh resigned or was terminated. I suspect that they were both given the opportunity to resign before the non-profit fired them.
Happy now internet?
