With Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) calling jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis the first Christian woman arrested by her government “for living according to her faith,” supporters of the intransigent government employee took to Twitter expressing support with #FreeKimDavis.
As might be expected, Twitter trolls showed up and hijacked the hashtag, mocking her multiple marriages, those who compare her to civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks, and making the obligatory references to women-behind-bars Netflix show, Orange Is the New Black.
Don’t #FreeKimDavis. Not unless she quits or agrees to do her job.

Don’t fall for the scam people! They say #FreeKimDavis, but if you read the fine print, its only if you buy one of equal or greater cost
