A former Banana Republic worker says a association is extremist since her bosses complained about her “urban” hairstyle.
Destiny Tompkins says she was hired as a sales repute during a BR in White Plains, NY — and shortly after starting a job, a 19-year-old says she began wearing her hair in braids. According to a taste suit, that pissed off her managers.
In docs, performed by TMZ, she says a store manager, who is white, approached her and told her that her braids were “too urban” and “unkempt” and didn’t go with BR’s image. Destiny interpreted that as “too black.”
Destiny says she refused to change her hairstyle, and was taken off a store’s work schedule. While she wasn’t strictly fired, she effectively was since she didn’t get any shifts.
After she vented on Facebook … Destiny says BR honchos dismissed a store manager.
Destiny’s suing BR’s corporate office, as good as a store and informal managers, for during slightest $1 million.
