Shamed The Applicant Publicly, The Company Gets Shut Down On Socials

A company that publicly shamed an applicant on social media gets instant trolls and shuts down their social presence

A woman was shamed publicly by the company she was applying for a job to. Emily Clow applied for a marketing job at Kickass Masterminds.

However, she did not think that her interviewer would shame her publicly on social media for a bikini picture she posted on her social media account.

“PSA (because I know some of you applicants are looking at this) do not share your social media with a potential employer if this is the kind of content on it. I am looking for a professional marketer – not a bikini model” wrote the company in a post they uploaded on their Instagram story.

Of course, Emily had her piece of mind to tell, too, after she was publicly shamed by the company.

In a post on Twitter, she said:

“I was objectified earlier today by a company because of a picture of me in a bikini. they claimed it made me an “unprofessional.” they screenshot the photo, posted it on their Insta story, and called me out. I am still baffled that the company handled it in such a manner.”

On the other hand, Emily asked the company to take down the post, but look at their answer:

The funny thing is that the company presented itself on LinkedIn in objection to what they acted in Emily’s case.

And the hypocrisy… Look what people found on the company owner’s account:

Fortunately, many people supported Emily and trolled the company so hard for their actions that they had to shut down their entire presence on social media.
