BBC:-A woman who shared a video of herself urinating on an American flag has asked that people stop targeting her family, saying they do not support her actions.
Emily Lance received online threats of murder and rape after posting the video during Independence Day celebrations.
Her account is no longer on Facebook but she previously posted that her father and his workplace had also been “targeted”, reports say.
Desecrating a US flag is not illegal due to strong freedom of speech laws.
In the video, Ms Lance is seen standing over a toilet on which a US flag is draped, and urinating on it with the aid of a device that allows women to do so standing up.
