Are we too easily offended? **Warning possibly offensive picture**
A young woman in Michigan was fired from her job after posting a picture of her Halloween costume on social media that then went viral.
She dressed up as a Boston Marathon bombing victim. It caused an uproar and social media descended on her with all the vileness that people behind a computer screen tend to do. Here is the picture she posted.
Was her costume in poor taste? Absolutely.
Was it offensive? I think so.
BUT should she have been fired for it?
And are we as a society too easily offended by what others say and do?
