(CNN)The man who hung an effigy of Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear on a tree outside the Kentucky state Capitol on Sunday, has been fired from his job.

Terry Bush confirmed to CNN that he lost his job at the Neil Huffman Auto Group on Tuesday.
“My First Amendment was violated while I was doing a First Amendment act,” Bush said, but added that he would not be able to comment further.

Shannon Huffman, human resources manager at the Neil Huffman Auto Group, released a statement Tuesday saying, “The Neil Huffman Auto Group does not condone threats of violence in any form, whether they be a call to action or an implied threat.

Following an internal investigation on this matter, the employee was terminated. There is no place for hate or intolerance at any of our dealerships.”
