A US Capital building rioter was fired from his job at a Maryland marketing firm after he wore a company badge while he stormed the building, the firm said.

The unnamed invader — who was captured in a photo with the Navistar Direct Marketing badge around his neck — was canned over the “dangerous conduct” after breaching the building, the firm said Wednesday.

“After review of the photographic evidence the employee in question has been terminated for cause,” the firm said in a statement posted on Facebook.

“While we support all employee’s right to peaceful, lawful exercise of free speech, any employee demonstrating dangerous conduct that endangers the health and safety of others will no longer have an employment opportunity with Navistar Direct Marketing,” it noted.

The rioter in question was photographed inside the US Capitol building, wearing a Trump hat with an American flag draped over his shoulder, according to an image posted by WBAL-TV 11 reporter Tre Ward.

He was also seen alongside Jake Angeli, a QAnon devotee who sported a bizarre, Viking-style horned hat as he sat in a chamber chair previously occupied by Vice President Mike Pence.
