Refinery 29 reports Emma Hulse, a 24-year-old woman who was five minutes into a freelance shift at London TV station, UNIT TV, when a manager fired her, saying she "should be on a catwalk.” Yep.
Hulse says she arrived at 9.30 a.m. for a day of freelance work, and got to work. Then, she got a weird text.
"Then my agent text me that I’m no longer required," she said. “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," she added.
“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," she continued, saying, "within a creative agency you should be free to wear what you want.”
