You can’t tone down a masterpiece.
Scott Ayton-Laplanche made a post on Facebook after he got discriminated for wearing makeup at work. According to him, the company he works for doesn’t have any makeup policy. Instead, many of his female employees do wear makeup on a regular basis.
After the event took place, Scott got the chance to take a photo and make a statement on Facebook.
Apparently, he has been working for Currys PC World for the past few months and previous managers were complimenting him on his looks. However, ever since a new manager took charge of the company, he’s been advised to not wear makeup at work.
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.
In a statement made by Ayton-Laplanche’s employer on HuffPost, he insisted that it was a store-level misunderstanding. Moreover, he claims they are very supportive when it comes to diversity in the workplace.
“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.”, Scott added.
In addition, Scott Ayton-Laplanche stated in his post that 2017 is the year that we celebrate pride and it’s wrong to discriminate for any reason.
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.
It is great to see that he stood on his feet in such a situation.
