We don't want to live in a world where employers shame women for wearing sexy bikinis.
Chacour Koop reports:
A Texas woman’s bikini picture was blasted on a company’s Instagram the same day she applied for an internship.
Now the 24-year-old is firing back and the post has gone viral while the Austin marketing company has gone dark online.
Emily Clow says she got an interview with Kickass Masterminds, an Austin marketing company, on the same day that she applied, KVUE reported. But when she got home, Clow saw the company had shamed her on its Instagram.
A post on the company’s Instagram story showed a screenshot of Clow standing in a swimming pool wearing a red bikini and posing for a picture. Clow had posted the picture to her own account in June.
“PSA (because I know some of you applicants are looking at this): do not share your social media with a potential employer if this is the kind of content on it. I am looking for a professional marketer — not a bikini model,” a caption written over the top of Clow’s photo shows. “Go on with your bad self and do whatever in private. But this is not doing you any favors in finding a professional job.”
