The case I was thinking of was the lady making the rude gesture at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Washiington, DC.
She was photographed and the image uploaded on the net. (Where everything stays forever.)
Big flap.
Roundly condemned.
They identified her by name and employer (an NGO, in fact), which was then hounded until they fired her.
We're not talking a public figure, we're not talking religion.
Just an ordinary run of the mill jerk who got lynched.
Whatever the orthodoxy she offended, I'm thinking a line was crossed by the mob.
Not a good precedent...
