Wes Breedwell, an employee of Rocketown, a Nashville, Tennessee music venue and Christian youth outreach facility, was fired this week for wearing a t-shirt from the Connecticut-based punk band Hostage Calm reading "I Support Same-Sex Marriage".

Wrote Breedwell on Instagram: "Got fired from Rocketown today. Social media is what did it. So here is a picture to show my support for equality and free speech including social media. Cheers to my friends for having my back through all of this. #sevenyears"
