That isn't yaoi.

And yes she deserved it, not for drawing nudes. But for acting unprofessional on a public media.


That pic might not be, but this one is.

The sad thing is that people are so influenced with the ranting and complaining of other people that any ranting related to work should not be tolerated by the company. I work in healthcare and if you post the wrong stuff anywhere twitter, fb, or instagram you can bet your job you will be fired.....Sad the world we live in today. Just an my old fashioned opinion.

"...Ultimately, IG made the decision to request the deletion Kuroiwa’s Twitter account, and will not be requesting further animation work from her in the future"


It was IG who wanted it removed.

Also-


They also re-emphasized the importance of using social networking services not just as fans or staff members, but as working professionals, and will be making sure to review their policies on the use of Twitter, Facebook and other services with their employees going forward.


They're real hard asses when it comes to social media I would say.


See, this is were I REALLY have a huge fucking problem.

I agree with most people here: she shouldn't be using social media to talk bad of the company or post fan art (or any art really that isn't corporate sanctioned) on social media that has the privacy settings set to "public" (that's why I bitch and moan about my work in emails or texts and keep my facebook settings at maximum restrictions. XD* ) I wish it wasn't the case, but every god forsaken fucking piece of info you post online... SOMEONE who either already knows you or wants to know you is going to search it out. From ex-lovers to recruitment agents of places of employment, to your current HR department and boss. EVERYONE seems to do a thorough informational cavity search that leaves you feeling more violated than by your proctologist.

And yeah, that's wrong. I hate how nosy everyone is, and the default setting is to google your customers (had bosses that did it ) google your dates (know many people who do that), google your friends (for two YEARS I had nonstop begging from my friends to either get me on facebook or be my facebook friends) and your employees (one of my boss's recently decided to click on my name when I used my personal account to test out a post on our company page. He got next to nothing, mainly because my settings are set so god damned high).

BUT... at the same time NOBODY wants to be googled or facebook searched themselves. Because it's "creepy" when someone does it to them....

Anyway, I think it's to be expected, and that you should make sure that you do such things in a way that they shouldn't ever leak.

One time I had a boss that insisted on me being accessible via an email address, and I used my personal one at the time. Long story short, I stepped away from my computer and she decided to read my emails, including one I had sent to a person IN ANOTHER COUNTRY talking about how I felt working for her. In addition to a long ass and very emotionally troubling "discussion" of what I told someone they would never meet in a private discussion, I ended up immediately setting up a new email account, switching all my contacts over, changing my passwords, and I set up a shitton of work "work only" accounts for my stuff (I have two FB accounts, 3-4 different email accounts, and from then on made sure I had even two separate computers [one for personal, and one for work] with absolutely nothing personal on the work stuff.) I NEVER felt like I could say or type a single word there without it being analyzed more so than the NSA by either my fellow employees or by my boss. I have never worked in a more toxic environment than that.

Am I paranoid? Maybe.. till you get violated yourself.

And trust me, everyone out there LOOOOOOOVES for you to post public, use your personal accounts for work. Which is what I hate the most. The work environment is one of such that you have absolutely NO personal life anymore. Everything you say or do is now somehow a representation of your work persona. You're never "off the clock" It started with the cell phone. Then smart phones... then social media. You are never offline. You are never disconnected. And I abhor it. And if you don't commit to that? your being "uncooperative" and treated like you're unreasonable. They've become the "necessities" of life.

And that's where the problem is. Not with firing her from a job that it seems she didn't fit into. Not for publicly denouncing her company, but that the company encourages her to use social media to promote the projects, and uses it to keep tabs on her. There is no reason that any job should own your soul 24/7. What she did was stupid and yes, probably fireable, but FFS, everyone needs some personal space.

To quote 1984, "Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimetres inside your skull." - and that's exactly what it's like today... Unless you're really good at setting up a shitton of sock pupped accounts.

*In all honesty, I do a lot of odd job stuff, and though I may grumble about money being tight or annoying situations caused by work, I really don't bitch and moan much. My one boss is a very close friend of mine, and has access to all my personal stuff because before she was my boss, she's been my friend first and foremost. The story that followed was of a different job, which I've been out of for two years now.

Nah. Freedom of expression and all that. Unfortunately I don't make the rules though. She stood up for her right to do whatever she wants on her own private account and faced the consequences. That makes sense but it's still unfortunate.

Her mistake was dissing her employer. You cant fire someone for what they do in their free time so the pictures were fine really(as long as she didn't put her name on them) but lots of employers fire staff that diss them on social media.

I don't think she should have been fired, but maybe just threatened.
