    Dear Teacher:

    Would you please tell me the word "drop" mean in the following sentence?

    "Oliviero Toscani, who photographed the confrontational ads and was dropped shortly after the death row campaign, always maintained that it wasn’t his duty to sell the clothes."

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: drop

    Dropped here means that he was sacked, he lost his job. Basically his boss told him he didn't want him working for him anymore.
