The 50-year-old didn't realise a White House photographer travelling with the president had snapped a photo of her obscene gesture.

Briskman flashing her middle-finger became a viral photo across social media.

"I wasn't even at work when I did that", Briskman said. "I'm thinking, he's at the damn golf course again", she said. "I flipped off the motorcade a number of times". Without more information about the discussions with Briskman - did they ask her to remove the image and she refused, or did they just fire her outright? - it's impossible to reach a conclusion over whether she has a case against Akima. However there is a complication: she had been in charge of the company's social media presence and recently red-flagged an inflammatory remark made by a senior director at the company.

This was an opportunity for me to say something". Going forward, Briskman says that she may look for a new job at Planned Parents or "an advocacy group that she believes in", reports the Huffington Post.
