You can; I cannot. Whether it is lawful would depend upon the relevant employment laws where you work (which country?). In some places (e.g., Colorado, in the USA) they would have to prove it has an impact on "the workplace" in order for your lawful, off-site, off-premises actions to be a legal reason to fire you.

Sure, especially if you do so by name, but even if not and everyone knows what the story is, that certainly would be bullying and harassing, creating a negative environment on the job. And if you're in an at-will employment market, you can be fired for virtually anything. Don't believe Republicans with "right-to-work" legislation. That just means the right to fire your a$s and gutting labor laws and unions that might represent and protection.
