A woman who posted video of herself peeing on an American flag on July 4 is getting death threats


A woman who filmed herself urinating on an American flag and posted it on the internet has asked that people stop threatening her and targeting her family, the BBC reported.

Emily Lance, of Pennsylvania, received threats of murder and rape online after posting the video during the Fourth of July.

In the video, Lance can be seen standing over a flag draped on a toilet and urinating on it using a device that helps females pee while standing. The video is captioned "F*** your nationalism. F*** your country. F*** your stupid f****** flag."

Her Facebook is no longer active, but she had posted that her father had been targeted at his workplace. She said that no one in her family agreed with her actions and that they had "nothing to do with [her] decisions."

"What don't you people understand? You're celebrating freedom while damning me for doing the same. You can't have it both ways," she said in a post.

A lot of people were very critical of Lance's actions on social media.
