You are right. The OP could have just walked off her job when she saw her place of employment acting against its credo, but she chose to speak out. This is called “Whistle-blowing”. And although this is not a huge case along the lines of the tobacco industry, the Pentagon Papers, Deep Throat, Snowden, et al, Ms. Kwon is calling out an employer whom she believes is not acting correctly. You get to believe her or not, but don’t condemn her for exercising her right to speak out about it.
