Man Left Fuming After Bosses Tell Him To Remove His Make-Up

Man Left Fuming After Bosses Tell Him To Remove His Make-Up

A man who was told to take his make-up off at work has slammed his bosses, telling them you can't 'tone down a masterpiece'.

Scott Laplanche, who has worked at Currys PC World for around nine months, says he's been wearing make-up the whole time (as have many of female co-workers) and has never had an issue.

"Actually, quite the opposite," Scott wrote on a post to Facebook. "Some managers have supported me and complimented my make-up."

However, he claims that since new management have come in, they've had a problem with it.

He wrote: Earlier on in the week I came to work as my fabulous self and was told to take off my makeup.

"I was quite shocked... After I refused, I'm getting told to tone it down? Excuse me? Tone it down? You can't tone down a masterpiece."

He added that it was discrimination, and claims that no one told any of the women workers to 'tone down' their make-up.

This is the point Scott makes in his post - pointing out that some of the other team members have more 'extreme' looks than his, but that they have not been told off.

He wrote: "Obviously, I'm not going to take off my makeup when all my other (female) colleagues are able to come to work as their fabulous selves.

"I might understand if my hair was dyed bright red (oh which some of my colleagues have) I might understand if I had bright blue eye liner on (oh which some of my colleagues do) I might understand if I came to work with bright green lipstick on (I'd be worried if any of my colleagues did) (btw every colleague is looking fabulous with their own look- I'm just illustrating my point)."

He finished his post by saying: "But guess what, this is 2017, a time of year where we celebrate Pride throughout summer and I look hella hot so deal with it! It's wrong to blatantly discriminate for whatever reason that may be."

A spokesperson from Currys PC World told the Mirror: "This was a local store level misunderstanding that is being dealt with internally. Scott takes pride in his appearance and Currys PC World is proud of its diverse workforce."
