Waitress 'Fired' After Posting Tearful Video Over 'Inappropriate' Crop Top

A waitress burst into tears as she told her TikTok followers how she'd been sent home from her job, after turning up to work in a crop top - and later said she'd been fired for posting about it. She tells her story in the clip below:


Vanessa Zavala, 22, decided to wear a black long sleeve crop top to work one day, but she was sent home as the outfit was 'inappropriate'. She immediately posted a video account of her story to her TikTok account, which has more than 14,000 followers.

In the clip, she can be seen crying in her car while claiming her managers had informed her she was in violation of their dress code.


She says: "I work at this bar-restaurant club thing where b****es will show up there in f***ing corsets, lingerie tops to work.

"But MY shirt, my long-sleeve crop top shirt is f***ing 'ugly' and 'inappropriate'.

"What sense does that make?!"

After the video had surpassed 520,000 views, Vanessa posted another video in which she stated that she had been fired from her job, despite her not naming the place that she worked at.

In the second clip, she explains: "I go to work the next day and everything is fine. The manager pulled me into his office.

"I got fired for posting a TikTok expressing how I felt, even though I didn't name drop.

"Now I'm broke and unemployed."


Pondering how her bosses had found out about the video, Vanessa says: "Someone definitely sent my video to the owners and they were like, 'OK, even though she didn't name drop, even though she didn't even say anything bad about the restaurant, we're going to have to fire her a** because she's talking about us.'

"That's why I literally got fired, because it's privately f***ing owned by three men and obviously if I'm on the internet crying, even if I didn't name drop, of course they're going to f***ing fire me.

"I didn't get a warning, they didn't say can you take down the video, I didn't name drop anyone."

Unsurprisingly, the posts sparked serious debate in the comments below. One sympathetic user wrote: "I'm so sorry girl I hope a new job comes your way that fits better."

Another added: "BYE they wish they look as good as you."

However, not everyone was on her side - a third person defended the owner, saying: "I know being dress coded isn't fun and this situation sounds unfair but people need to learn how to dress professionally for work."

Another user simply asked: "Maybe there's a certain look their place goes for and a long sleeve crop top wasn't it?"
