You may remember that back in the summer of 2010, an attractive and curvaceous
woman named Debrahlee Lorenzan sued Citibank for wrongful termination.
Apparently Lorenzana was "too hot" - so hot, in fact, that she
allegedly distracted other bankers from doing their jobs, resulting in
Just two years later, another woman claims that she was fired for similar
reasons - her employers at a lingerie business allegedly told her she
was "too hot" and that her breasts were "too large."
Now, we know what you must be thinking: how can one be "too hot,"
or have breasts "too large" to work for a lingerie company?
First, let's dig into the facts of the case. The plaintiff, Lauren
Elizabeth Odes, has filed a gender and religious discrimination suit against
her former employer, Native Intimates, with the assistance of her high-profile
attorney, Gloria Allred.
When your breasts are as large as Odes's g, you can't just tape
them down without defying the laws of physics. Besides, according to Reuters,
Odes said that the lingerie business sold "thongs with hearts placed
in the female genital area and boy shorts for women that say 'hot'
in the buttocks area," which she thought granted her license to dress
And when we say "provocatively," we mean too hot for the Orthodox
Jewish owners of the company. In fact, in the New York Post write-up,
Ms. Allred noted that Odes was told she was "drawing attention from
others," and that she should tone down her style of dress "for
her own safety." Can we get an "oy vey" up in here?
In the wake of her lawsuit, perhaps this is the attention that Odes was
looking for all along. She's listed as a "Fahion executive/bartender"
on Reality Wanted , a web site that helps aspiring reality-show cast members
find work. You'd think that with those two big brains of hers, she'd
be able to spell "fashion" correctly, but alas, that doesn't
seem to be her strong suit.
