Woman Claims She Was Fired For Being Too Good-Looking
A woman has claimed she was fired by her employer because she was ‘too good looking.’
The Sun reports that Freelance television worker, Emma Hulse, had just started an eight-hour shift when her manager told her: “Are you not doing catwalks? Why are you not at the front of house?”
The 24-year-old woman from London, then claims that her manager sent her home after he “suggested we go for a drink,” the Evening Standard reports.
“I got there and spoke to the line manager and he asked me, ‘Are you a model? Are you not doing catwalks, why are you not at the front of house?’
“I was wearing a lipstick but from my perspective I was not inappropriate. I was wearing a shirt and trousers. I really didn’t think I looked inappropriate.
“Then he took my number, he suggested we go for a drink.”
She added: “I was quite disappointed to be sent home. I didn’t really know what to do.
“Maybe that company employs plain looking people and maybe if you don’t look that way they don’t take you, maybe I was a distraction.
“I do camera operating as well, I work for many different companies and no one has sent me home because of the way I look. Especially within a creative agency you should be free to wear what you want.”
The company, Unit TV, admitted that the said situation did happen, and they have since fired the manager.
