At five-foot-six and 125 pounds, Debrahlee Lorenzana is a stunning Puerto Rican knockout. But after being fired by Citibank for being “too hot”, she’s taking her case (along with her smokin’ hot body) to court. The Village Voice reports,
In many ways, the story of her life has been about getting attention from menâ€”both the wanted and the unwanted kind. But when she got fired last summer from her job as a banker at a Citibank branch in Midtownâ€”her bosses cited her work performanceâ€”she got even hotter. She sued Citigroup, claiming that she was fired solely because her bosses thought she was too hot.
This is the way Debbie Lorenzana tells it: Her bosses told her they couldn’t concentrate on their work because her appearance was too distracting. They ordered her to stop wearing turtlenecks. She was also forbidden to wear pencil skirts, three-inch heels, or fitted business suits. Lorenzana, a 33-year-old single mom, pointed out female colleagues whose clothing was far more revealing than hers: “They said their body shapes were different from mine, and I drew too much attention,” she says.
Look on the bright side Debrahlee, at least you didn’t get fired for looking like Kerstie Alley’s stunt double in the International Federation of Competitive Eating’s Hot Dog Eating Championship.
