Woman jobless, receiving death threats after Facebook post about military

MANHATTAN, Kan. - A Kansas woman is now without a job and receiving death threats after she posted a remark about the military on Facebook.

On her personal Facebook page, Meagan May posted a comment saying she didn't consider the military heroic and criticized military personnel for expecting discounts at businesses. She says soldiers receive too much special treatment.

"I was using my Facebook as a venting thing. I have in the past used my Facebook to discuss controversial issues and they've never gotten like this and I received a call the next day from my boss saying you need to come in and I went in," May told KSNT. "And it wasn't straight up you're fired. It was an altercation and I said, ‘I quit,' and then he said, ‘No, you're fired.'"

May's comment prompted thousands of comments and made her the target of death threats.

She says she still stands by her post and just wants to move and take care of her family, which has also become the target of threats.
