    I have a hard time seeing how this is "hateful." How is she "hating" anyone by trying to pass a sad but true statement as a joke?

    People make ill advised jokes all the time, that doesn't make them "hateful."

    She didnt have to break a law to be fired. The 1A protects you from govt consequences, not private.

    Free speech means the protection of speech that will likely come under fire from a majority of people.

    If it was your business and it reflected badly on it and damaged your business, you would probably think differently.

    In her line of work she should have known better.

    Yeah...you have free speech, accorded by the 1A. It doesnt protect you from consequences...you are expected to be accountable for your speech, that's not the govt's problem either. The Const doesnt enumerate personal responsibility but it sets us up for it, implies it (by not creating protections 'from' exercising our rights).

    The 1st Amendment doesn't make physical violence legal. Our culture expects us to be responsible, but the only thing wrong with that, is that the people who insist on more responsibility, only want to hold certain people responsible, while letting others off scot free.

    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
