A woman who worked at the comically named Dainty Hooligan boutique in Oklahoma has quit her golden nugget of a job after the company owner informed her of what body type the store needs on their Instagram page to get the most likes.
Employee Sherene Zarrabi sparked some controversy by, uh, posting some cute pics of herself in furry vests and sweaters to the store’s Instagram page, only to find that they had been deleted soon after. The company owner sent her this lovely email, according to Oklahoma NewsOn6, “I want size small, the stereotypical ‘model’ type to model our clothes…Don’t take it personal, all I ask for is really good representation.” Welp, a segment on body shaming from the local news station is always a good place to start for solid representation, we guess.
Zarrabi is now speaking out against the hooligan who kindly said they didn’t want a curvier woman representing the store’s super stylin’ threads. She said, “If they want just a size small model, they can sell just size small clothing. That’s the way that I look at it. Like, if I can fit into their clothing, why can’t I be in the picture?” MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION. Another million dollar question: why would anyone actually name their business “Dainty Hooligan”?
The company owner has since told Zarrabi that she misinterpreted the email because that message was super unclear lolz. Anywho, their loss because other stores are already reaching out to this babe saying she’s welcome to model their clothing all day long.
