76. Sorry you got canned
You had my 100% sympathy until you said you added a frame to the video. Then you only had 90% sympathy. Despite your feelings, you did break the contract with what some would deem inflammatory behavior. If I did it in my job (and I can do it), I would be kicked to the curb so fast the skin on my ass would be sheared off. Not because of my political beliefs, but because I broke the trust of my employer. My boss did something similar once...added the phrase "Love your mother" to a promotional spot for one frame, and he got suspended a week without pay. The only reason he got caught was that HIS boss happened to hit pause at the EXACT right moment.

That said, the fact that some dipshit turned you in like that sucks. But if you post THAT specific of info, you're almost waving a red flag in front of a freeper. I agree that things get way too Orwellian. But you set yourself up for it.
