How freely some people fly the Confederate flag has always confused me. After all, the Confederate States of America was run by a group of traitors who attempted to dissolve the union and fully embraced the horrors of slavery. But then again, the right to raise whatever flag you want is part of what makes this country so great.
Twitter user Brigitte Yasamin was in pottery class recently when she noticed that the classmate sitting next to her was making a box painted with the Confederate flag. So she decided to take to Twitter and share her disgust.
But here's where things get interesting. Yasamin's next tweet showed the pottery smashed across the floor with a simple caption: "Oooppsss."
In a series of tweets since Yasamin's tweet went viral, she doesn't seem to regret her actions.
I'm just happily waiting for the principle to call me up to her office so we can discuss this whole thing lol I ain't shook— Brigitte🌹 (@BrigitteYasamin) April 17, 2017
The "worst" thing that can happen is that I get suspended I'll happily take that lol— Brigitte🌹 (@BrigitteYasamin) April 17, 2017
Of course, reactions were mixed.
What do you think?
