People had the RIGHT  to disagree with him.

A&E had the RIGHT to fire him.

People had the RIGHT to agree with the firing.

People had the RIGHT TO disagree with the firing.

People had/have the RIGHT to share such feelings on social media.

People have the RIGHT to agree and disagree with one another on social media over Phil Robertson, Homosexuality, his firing, other shows on A&E…everything.

People have the RIGHT to say what they want in such discussions.

Others, including places of employment, have the RIGHT to monitor such language.

Others, including places of employment, have the RIGHT to react to anything anyone says on a public forum.

People, then, have the RIGHT to deal with any RIGHTS others have to respond to what you had the RIGHT to say.
