A young man was told to remove his make-up by his bosses. The man has slammed his new bosses, telling them they can’t “tone down a masterpiece.”
Scott Laplanche, a former employee at Currys PC World claims that he has been wearing make-up the whole time without anyone complaining about it.
“Actually, quite the opposite,” he wrote on a post to Facebook. “Some managers have supported me and complimented my make-up.”
However, Scott swears that since the new bosses have come in, they had a problem with him wearing his make-up.
Scott 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 this made him feel discriminated as his female colleagues weren’t told to remove their make-up.
Scott wrote the following: “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).”
Scott finished his Facebook status 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 PR manager from Currys PC World said this to the Mirror about the whole event: “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.”
