Instagram is a social media website that is somewhat different than others such as Facebook and Twitter. While Facebook and Twitter are often utilized to spark conversations or share links, Instagram is mostly about the posting of images, such as personal pictures, memes and short videos. Users of Instagram have been known to take part in some harmless “trolling” every now and again. Major League Baseball superstar Bryce Harper learned all about this in September of 2015 when fans of the New York Mets flocked to Harper's account to post three simple letters after the Mets swept the Washington Nationals: LGM.

Those and other similar posts are probably annoying to the person who is on the receiving end. They are also, for the most part, harmless. Some people fail to understand that there is a line that separates harmless Instagram posts from the type of pictures that could get somebody fired. Anybody who works in the medical field, let alone a nurse who has access to an emergency room, should probably refrain from snapping pictures of those types of scenes. One Instagram user was reminded in the summer of 2014 that sharing that type of content will put someone in danger of being fired.

Last but certainly not least is the case of the woman who hoped that she would one day make it to the main World Wrestling Entertainment roster. Controversial Instagram posts that she made in the past caught up with her near the end of the summer of 2015. Even being the girlfriend of the WWE World Heavyweight Champion did not keep her from being fired all because of Instagram. All would do well to remember that those “freedom of speech” laws do offer protections, but they may not be able to keep you from being fired over one Instagram post.

Zahra Schreiber was hoping to be a WWE Diva as of the summer of 2015. That career dream took a serious blow when it was discovered that she had, in the past, uploaded what appeared to be pro-Nazi images on her Instagram page. Schreiber even, per an E Online story, defended at least one of those posts by saying the following: “The swastika means prosperity and luck. It was around way before Hitler turned it into an icon.” Those running WWE were not impressed with that explanation, and Schreiber was fired. She later apologized for the Instagram pictures, but it was too late.
