Ms Liebeknecht said a group of people were unhappy when she was chosen for the position and they had since been attacking her on social media and threatening her and her family. 'I've been spat on, I've had people scare me, I've had people contact me at work anonymously, saying 'I know where your children go to school',' she said. 'There was also a gentleman who continues to this day to slander me for my sexuality. It just gets vicious.'

the other side of the story was you literally supposing that "maybe she got fired for something else" in contradiction to the article?
sounds like baseless speculation to me.
FEAST Festival directors have insisted the show will go on next month in Adelaide despite suspending general manager Cassandra Liebeknecht, who is reportedly being investigated for alleged misconduct.
While confirming they had engaged a legal team, Feast directors would not be drawn on claims that Liebeknecht’s suspension was due to alleged mismanagement of finances.
“The Feast Board of Management is not in a position to comment about any internal investigations that may be currently underway,” the LGBTIQ arts festival’s directors said in a statement.
Liebeknecht did not respond when contacted by The Advertiser yesterday.
...Liebeknecht’s suspension on full pay followed an emergency board meeting last Friday after turmoil around Feast’s new city “queer cultural hub” at Raj House in Hyde Street.
Members of the broader arts community had hit out at the festival on social media saying Feast had reneged on a deal to work with the building’s previous tenants Tuxedo Cat.
