& # 39; But I defend her right to do that. Freedom means nothing if it doesn't apply to everyone. I have not served my 22 to defend the freedom of only those with whom I agree. & # 39;

Another Twitter user wrote: & # 39; Although this image is thwarting me and making me angry … I am aware that thanks to those who have at least served and suffered and at most lost lives, this person has the freedom to express themselves in a way that is not possible in many parts of the world. & # 39;

The red poppy refers specifically to the Armed Forces community, but not exclusively, and recognizes the wider impact of conflicts & # 39; according to the website of The Royal British Legion.

The 98-year-old charity also defines Memorial Day as recognizing "the sacrifice of the British and Commonwealth forces" and "innocent civilians who lost their lives in conflicts and acts of terror."

Forty million poppies are distributed every year and last year the Royal British Legion raised more than £ 50 million for veterans of the British armed forces and their families.
