It began with an 'It's OK to vote No' Facebook filter and ended two weeks later, when 18-year-old Madeline was fired over her views on same-sex marriage.

The story of her sacking has blown up, but until she was contacted by Hack today, Madeline had no idea she was at the centre of controversy. In late August, the Christian from Canberra had publicly revealed she planned to vote no in the same-sex marriage postal survey. She was fired on Sunday via a Facebook message in which she was told "homophobic views being made public are detrimental to the business."

With accusations flying, Hack has spoken with Madeline as well as her boss, Madlin Sims, to piece together how a company dedicated to tying balloons and entertaining children on their birthdays could become the sight of such public anger.
