Dear Hooters, This SUCKS!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal Matters

Unbelievable.

A female employee at a Hooters restaurant is considering taking legal action against the corporation because they not only offered her a gym membership, but then told her that if she didn't lose weight, she would lose her job!

Cassandra Smith, who is 20 and apparently only 5'8" and 132 pounds, was called in for her yearly review when her manager, along with two representatives from corporate headquarters in Atlanta via webcam, informed her that she had 30 days to lose the weight, and if there were no results, her employment would be terminated.

She says:

"I was confused because I don't wear the biggest uniform size. I was just completely embarrassed. I'm not overweight by any means. If anything … I've been losing weight."

Way to go, Hooters! Apparently you asshats weren't happy demeaning your female employees enough by forcing them to wear those ridiculous outfits, you have to pressure them to lose weight, too!

Have fun being slapped with THAT lawsuit!

    hey fat pig…you could work there your TITTS ARE BIG…FROM ALL THAT FAT YOU LOST….YOU HAVE WHAT LIKE DD's…hahaha you fat pig!



  2. 2

    Meh, I could totally see somewhere in her employment contract saying that is ok for them to do this. Still horrible but oh well. And I'm sure Hooters has a team of lawyers on retainer to deal with potential lawsuits like this. Don't think this will develop into something really at all.



  3. 3

    me thinks update time for Undercover Boss. That was my favorite episode!



  4. 4

    They treat those girls like a piece of meat. Hooters is a disgrace to women it makes girls want to suicide.



  5. 5

    oh please, this girl knew when she applied what the deal was. Its Hooters! People go there for one thing, and the hot wings are not that good! She could have applied at Chili's.



  6. 6

    Makes no sense. I've seen waitresses in there whose boobs weigh 132 lbs



  7. 7

    Yikes. 5'8" and 132 is a very healthy body!



  8. 8

    duh! all Hooters are like that, and they "review" you alot more than once a year. you gotta keep a certain weight and body shape, they tell you that when you're hired…thats fukd up tho if she's not fat.



  9. 9

    OMG!!! Her employers offered her a FREE gym membership? What a bunch of assholes …… NOT!!! She knew the expectations regarding her appearance going in and if you've see the Video not Pictures, she had put on weight and no one wants to see a fat Hooter's girl just like I don't want to see some flabby fat guy in the Thunder from Down Under show.



  10. 10

    WHAT? At that weight and height there is no way that she is overweight-unbelievable! They didn't know that they can't say that to an employee?!!!!



  11. 11

    Working there is a choice, Perez. If a young woman chooses to work at an establishment that requires short shorts and low cut tops, she is choosing to wear a demeaning outfit and it would be in the interest of all involved for her to look good in that outfit. I'm not saying the "lose weight or lose your job" thing is right, but she DOES have a choice… it's not like she got the job and went "oh nooooo! you are demeaning me by making me wear that outfit!" She purposefully applied there. It's the KNOWN uniform. If she were a stripper you wouldn't say "it is demeaning that those girls are forced to take their clothes off or get fired!" would you?

    Very strange, I live by that Hooters and I'm pretty sure last time I went in there were PLENTY of girls there that were over 132 lbs and probably much shorter than this girl was. Very sad if it's true, I'm sick of the pressure on girls to be "perfect"…it's exhausting.



  13. 13

    wtf?! her weight sounds fine…what to they want her to be 90 pounds?



  14. 14

    They offered her a FREE gym membership???? Noooooo what assholes! NOT.

    You are a stupid Drama Queen Mario.

    She decided to go to work at HOOTERS.

    Don't let the door hit you in the ass if you have a problem with it.



  15. 15

    People go to hooters to see hot girls, not fat ones. If she wants to waitress and be fat go work at Ihop



  16. 16

    and above this is a piece where you deride tori spelling for her weight. or is that different cos its you saying it? a persons weight is none of anyone elses business, be they employer or gossip columnist.



  17. 17

    Where to start…
    .
    If you get a job in a place that, basically, hires bimbos…what do you expect?
    .
    You could take a different direction in life. Rather than relying on your T&A to get you by, that is.
    .
    Are you more than your breasts and vagina? 'Cause that's what the Hooters is all about. Putting the "goodies" on display.
    .
    If you want to "dangle your lady bits" in front of the customers like you are a piece of meat, you will be treated like a piece of meat.
    .
    You ARE A PIECE OF MEAT in that environment and…YOU SIGNED UP FOR IT.
    .
    Get a different life, or accept what it is that YOU signed up for.
    .
    You want the "benefits" ('power') of being a Tramp, without the downside?
    .
    Good luck. You're gonna need it.
    .
    The good news is…this is a WAKE UP CALL!
    .
    You 'could' quit being such a Bimbo/Tramp and opt for a different life.
    .
    You 'could' actually EARN some REAL RESPECT rather than trying to get a "Free" ride that turn out to not be "Free" after all.
    .
    Thank God for Madonna, Britney, Ga Ga and the other Tramps that show little girls how to use their genitalia to get by in the world.
    .
    If you don't change your ways…here's what you have to look forward to:
    .
    Drug/Alchohol problems, Mental Illness, Depression, Multiple Divorces, Screwed Up Kids, A WASTED LIFE, etc.
    .
    This is NOT an unknown path.
    .
    WAKE UP, BIMBO!
    .
    There is a better way…IF…you are willing to take it.



  18. 18

    It's actually completely legal. Hooters hires their waitresses and hostesses as models, which is how they can get away with only hiring girls with a certain look.
    I think it's nice of them to have offered her a gym membership (albeit offensive), that's probably the only modeling job she will have that will be that lenient.

    it does suck, and it shouldn't be allowed - but it's NOT discrimination. Fedreal law prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin, also age, genetics, and disabilities. Employers are allow to fire you if you're fat, and in some states, for no particular reason at all - welcome to america.



  20. 20

    132 for that height is pretty thin. I'm 135 and 5'10 and I'm deifnitely thin (not on purpose, recovering from chemo). I think they're trying to get rid of her for another reason…



  21. 21

    Lol im not surprised. You can't be healthy at hooters. The customers are fat middle aged men, and the waitresses are skinny with big boobs.
    It's probably just in case of a flood or something. Maybe all the waitresses can't swim and their boobs are there to make sure they stay afloat. But you have to have a skinny body, otherwise it wont work. Great safety plan hooters!!



  22. 22

    Re: tom951
    you obviously do not know female weights - 132 for 5'8 is nowhere NEAR fat, chubby or even borderline



  23. 23

    Whoa whoa WHOA. Who is forcing anyone to do anything? These girls work at Hooters for a reason. They know they can make good money. It's just like saying a woman sues a strip club because she had to strip. They KNOW what they are getting into. You don't know how many times I have seen Hooters girls get all pissy because a guy asks what her bra size is, or looks at her tits. GET OVER IT. If you don't want to be treated like that, find a job at Pizza Hut. And about the weight…have you ever seen the show REHAB? They showed it on tv where the guy told the girl to go work out, she was kinda falling out. She was! Nobody said shit about that show. So ya know what, Whatever. this girl is just being a bitch.



  24. 24

    No one is "forcing" them to wear those outfits, OR work there…
    The girls get jobs there because they like to wear skanky tight shorts and tight tank tops, and have men oogle them in order to make big tips…
    This isn't fucking Russia, Asshat…they all have a choice.
    Also, just like the Laker Girls, or the Dallas Cowgirls have to be a size 6, the girls at Hooters have to maintain their body size and shape.
    None of this is a secrect or a surprise to them…it is all upfront when they are hired…
    They will not lose the lawsuit and Miss fat-ass, will just face furthur embarrasment and legal costs.
    Nice job stupid. She should have just taken the gym membership and worked of those cheap wings…



  25. 25

    technically hooters employees are hired as MODELS though so… they're aloud to have restrictions based on weight… height… etc. no different then booking a model for runway… well, less classy but lets not go there.



  26. 26

    OMg - i got this job as a stripper and they want me to take my clothes off! lawsuit!
    puh-leaseeeeeeeeeeee

    27

    in this day and age it's hard to find a job, but it's shameful that the company is having such sketchy practices. she is at a very healthy, and actually quite tiny weight! a friend of mine is 5'5" and 130 pounds and she's a size 2! that can only mean that this girl is around the same size, between a 0 and a 4. how much skinnier can you get??? no one wants an anorexic chick, ya go to hooters for girls with CURVES! i'm just thankful that the NY branches went bankrupt and we don't have to deal with the BS here in ny. now i wish the whole chain would go to hell!



  28. 28

    What does she expect? She took the job.. Everyone knows how Hooters is. She has to look the part. She should just quit. Everyone wants to file a lawsuit for money these days.

  29. auds says – reply to this


    29

    Re: Chawnie23 – Laker girls get paid a hell of a lot more than a Hooters girl. They're just a glamed up waitress. If I worked there, I'd get everyone to quit, sue their gross ass and then get a better job at an actual restaurant that serves edible food.



  30. 30

    It's legal. There's some latin word lawyers use to describe this type of job requirement but I can't think of what it is off the top of my head. But basically when a company and their product is very closely associated with and dependent on a certain look of the employee, the employer can require they meet their expectations in that manner. Kind of like how it's not considered discrimination to only hire black actors if the fictional characters they are meant to portray are black. It's along the same lines.



  31. 31

    Not your demographic Perez, best keep your mouth shut. She applied there, she knows the deal, demeaning, or not, she signed on for it.



  32. 32

    I just want to clear something up. No one makes these girls wear the outfit. Everyone of those girls has a choice to work there or not. "Apparently you asshats weren't happy demeaning your female employees enough by forcing them to wear those ridiculous outfits," However its horrible that someone of her height and weight is thought of as fat by some corporate pigs.



  33. 33

    Like it or not, this woman was hired for her looks and if she is not conforming to thier standards they have the right to fire her. And these women are not forced to wear a "too tight" uniform, they took the job knowing the uniform, they have a choice to not work there….it's pretty plain and simple.



  34. 34

    Hooters knows how to handle a lawsuit. I'm sure everyone above the age of 20 remembers the billboards from the 90s with the fat dudes on them.



  35. 35

    Hey Underboss is a needed update to see what Hooters is still up to. you would think after that one scene where that manager had the girls do reindeer games in order to get off of work you would think that the CEO would check all restaurants instead of a few. to tell someone that they need to lose weight is ridiculous!



  36. 36

    Uuuhh 5'8 and 132 lbs. is pretty damn thick. I don't want to look at cellulite with my delicious hot wings!



  37. 37


  38. 38

    132 pounds is getting a bit heavy if you ask me. No one wants to see a gut hanging out of a tight skimpy tanktop. Maybe she could work "in the back".



  39. 39

    I am the same. 5'8" & about 135 and am in no way fat, just tall. but i am pretty sure this isnt the first time hooters has done something like this



  40. 40

    I worked 4 Hooters for 3 yrs. I trained new hires, did admin work, & got promoted 2 shift supvsr. After 2 yrs, I started 2 see how they treated girls diff. I never had a problem bc I never did anything wrong but it rly upset me how f*cking inconsistent they were w/ the girls, management, & cooks. It is true that the lawsuit wil go no where bc they r allowed 2 say that. We do get checked more then once a yr…more then once a shift . Where I worked which I THEY KNOWINGLY promoted an illegal alien who was a cook 2 a manager bc it was convenient for them. He worked there for over 15 years & when they decided they did not like him anymore they used the excuse that he did not have this specific type of liq. certification ( couldnt obtain it bc he was illegal). They fired him when it was CONVENIENT 4 THEM. They have diff rules for every1. A SAD CASE, when a Hostess was hired, most hostess get hired want 2 eventually be a Hooters girl, they hired her….she was good enough 4 a hostess but not 2 let her be a hooters girl! Worst of all, at an all employee meeting they gave her a hooter girl outfit & all it did was collect dust in her closet. Can u imagine…BE GIVEN UNIFORM then saying oh no wait you are too heavy. All the managers ( especially the ones in the in crowd) have f*cked a hooters girl . When the PIG OWNER came 2 town he would take the hooters girls of his liking to nice steak houses. disgusting GROWN MEN acting this way when there children & wives r at home.



  41. 41

    I worked at a Hooters in NC for a little over 3 years. First, it's not fair to call Hooters Girls bimbos. At my store over half of the Hooters Girls attended college and on top of that the colleges that all of us went to were Duke, UNC - Chapel Hill (tarheels), NC State. All of these universities are well known for having tough programs. Students attending these schools generally have to rank in the top 25% of their high school class or higher, have taken honors and AP classes while in high school, and score 1000+ (old SAT scoring) on their SATs. On top of that there were several girls who were attending these universities to earn graduate degrees. Being pretty does not equal being stupid.



  42. 42

    ITS CALLED BFOQ. BONIFIED OCCUPATIONAL QUALIFICATION. It is a lawsuit they wont back in the day that allows they to hire a certain type bc it is nec for the running of their business. I am not knocking that. I mean I am 5'2 110 lbs but I am not going 2 be a victoria secret model…I no that & accept it. But, people need to have class & do things tactfully and be FAIR & CONSISTENT! They are cowards and hide behind their lawyers and HR.



  43. 43

    Re: fabulousmegs – Oh, sure. I am completely convinced that Hooters (slang for BOOBS, after all) Bimbos are most certainly the intellectual types. Dean's List all the way. LOL!
    .
    WAKE UP, BIMBO! It's T…and…A. "T" stands for tits and "A" stands for ass.
    Just in case you didn't know.
    .
    There a lot of pretty girls in this world that do not sell themselves as PIECES OF MEAT.
    .
    You are free to be a Tramp if you want.
    .
    You are NOT able to excuse yourself from the consequences of doing so.
    .
    As I noted previously, this is NOT an unknown path.
    .
    It is very apparent where this path leads. There are UNLIMITED numbers of ruined past Bimbos that have been down this path.
    .
    So…knock your Bimbo self out. Maybe you can beat the system…NOT.
    .
    There is such as thing as CONSEQUENCES.
    .
    Possession of a vagina does NOT exempt you from CAUSE and EFFECT.
    .
    Have fun. Do it the Bimbo way. Let us all know how it works out for ya…down the road.
    .
    THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A FREE LUNCH. Never has been.
    .



  44. 44

    she is under weight..for her height



  45. 45

    Ok I can't believe you people are defending hooters. SHe is 5'8 and 132 pounds, 5'8 people thats tall, and thin! Fuck that! They need to get in trouble and those of you supporting this, should be ashamed of yourself!



  46. 46

    I find the comments on here about that actually being 'fat' kind of insane. At 5'8, anything less than like 120 pounds is considered underweight, and unhealthy. 132 would be thin, but normal and ok. Depending on build, 140-160 is usually thought about the average healthy range for that height.

    I am 5'8 and generally between 127-130 and constantly have people telling me I am 'too thin'. I don't see where they think they are going to find women who are 5'8 and 120-125 pounds and a DD cup, seriously. My measurements are 33-25.5-36.



  47. 47

    when you are hired to hooters they take your picture and if you "change" too much from that picture over the course of a year they will fire you. You sign a contract before you are put on the floor THAT YOU WONT CHANGE. SHE ASKED FOR IT. THEY TELL YOU ALL OF THIS WHEN YOU ARE HIRED YOU ARE HIRED AS A MODEL.



  48. 48

    A bit embarrassed to admit that I worked at Hooters for 4 months (hey, I was 19 and they were willing to hire me with no food service experience, ok? :)

    Anyway…if I remember correctly as of 5 or so years ago, on paper it said something to the effect that the waitresses are classified as "entertainers" and not "waitresses" - so the corporation can legally hire someone based on appearance, over skill level.

    Therefore, I'm assuming if they are legally allowed to hire/judge someone on appearance ( which with any other job outside the entertainment industry, is illegal to do) to hire , they can probably fire someone, or tell someone to change their appearance as well.

    If they didn't do this - Don't you think there would be a lot more lawsuits brought by women who either weren't hired or were fired because of their appearance?

    I was given a lecture for not smiling enough. So I quit. All in all, it wasn't a horrible experience, but it just wasn't for me… never worked in the food service again.



  49. 49

    Too bad she won't win this case. Being someone who works in employment law I have seen the Hooters employee handbook. All this is disclosed. They also have to sign it stating they agree.



  50. 50

    I think it's kind of funny how you pressure many hollywood women to lose weight, but you think it's disgusting for a restaurant that is famous for it's sexually appealing waitresses to want leaner, sexier, skinnier waitresses. You're a joke.

  51. jkf says – reply to this


    51

    Hooters response is that this is a ob requirement just like the Dallas Cheerleaders or the Rockettes. Would you like to see an overweight Rockette? the rules are the rules. If they think she's too big than she's too big. I saw her on the local news and while she's cute, she doesn't look like a Hooters girl to me. Drop the weight or get a job elsewhere. Less chicken wings and more breasts!



  52. 52

    It's totally legal. Good luck to her finding an attorney. Sucks, but true.

    53

    Re: Cyrabelle – If the girls there looked like the girls you see all around town no one would go there, get it? they have no problems finding women to fit the bill. congrats on your measurements but I wouldn't go to Hooters to see that



  54. 54

    132 may not sound "fat" but people carry weight differently. She probably looks chubby. Dumb bitch, no wonder you're working at Hooters, and you're too thick for that even, you big ass.

  55. myjah says – reply to this


    55

    There is NO WAY this could be true. 5'8 an d 132lbs is NOT fat, and I've seen a lot more heavier girls than that working at hooters!



  56. 56

    IF SHE HAS ENOUGH CONFIDENCE TO WANT TO WORK AT HOOTERS KNOWING THE IMAGE SHE REPRESENTS IN THOSE TIGHT SHORT SHORTS, AND TIGHT SHIRTS, THATS HOT!! I'M SURE SHE'S HOT AS FUCK, I'D BANG HER WITHOUT SEEING A PICTURE OF HER YET!! HIT ME UP CASSANDRA!!



  57. 57

    I don't want some fatty serving me my gourmet hotdog. I want a hot fox with big tits…. Lose weight or GET OUT!



  58. 58

    *gasp* Whaaaat?? HOOOOOTERS is demeaning their female employees? Say it ain't so!! *feigned outrage and shock*

    59

    5'8 and 132 pounds — only in my wildest dreams. Shame on Hooters! Some men like a little curve, not some stick insect. Dayummmmm….



  60. 60

    I am ashamed of all of you and your obscene comments about people who work for hooters. Its a FUCKING job!!! In this economy right now, people are lucky to have a job. Also the outfits arent that friggin bad. Get over yourselves. I work at hooters and i love it. Most of the girls that work there are all in college some are going to be lawyers, teachers, and nurses. Its a job so we can pay the bills. its not like its tilted kilt where they wear short ass skirts and show their stomachs and bras. Everyone has to get over themselves. This is sad and pathetic we all need to move on.



  61. 61

    I'm sorry but I agree with the employer. That's how Hooters makes money. They attract customers with attractive employees. She knew what she was signing on for. Every food place tries to have something that sets them apart. Hooters KNOWS that their uniqueness stems from superficiality. If her appearance had drastically changed since the time she got hired, then they are not in the wrong to request she return to her previous state.



  62. 62

    uh seriously…what do you expect from a place called HOOOTERSSSSSSSS



  63. 63

    Re: jkf – I wasn't looking for commendations on my measurements, they were just an example of what most women around or slightly above their weight requirements would likely be proportioned like, approximately. Breasts are made of fat. It follows that if you do not have a lot of body fat, you will generally not have a lot of breast fat, unless you are unusual. Yes, some women have such builds, certainly, but they appear to be rare enough at least where I live that if Hooters employed only them, they would have about 5 employees. And things like breast implants would be in far less demand than they are.



  64. 64

    Oh man I hope she sues there asses! Ass-holes!



  65. 65

    ha haha hahahahaha ha hahahah

    Perez, you're whole empire was founded off of exploiting people's insecurities, faults, and vanity. STFU!



  66. 66

    Re: Sheather3 – oh boo hoo..please. there have to be other jobs where you aren't hired purely for having big tits. i'm attractive and young but i don't rely on my body or having to act like a ditz and shamelessly flirt with every male who walks in the door to make an income. that's a choice. and don't tell me Hooter's isn't like that i've BEEN to a Hooters. it's gross and creepy.
    and you capitalized the wrong word in your comment there, you basically are insinuating you fuck for money. Which is just a few steps down the road from Hooters girl. Enjoy that career path.



  67. 67

    That's so sad! She'll win it and I'm glad!

    Good article, thanks!



  68. 68

    132 at 5'8" is skinny



  69. 69

    I saw the girl on TV that is doing the court case, she isn't fat.. I think her managers were being stupid.

    On a side note, a woman applying at a Hooters will surely know what her employment entails, specially in regards to the attire that she would be wearing. I don't think anyone could be credible in not knowing what being a Hooters girl is… be like going to apply to be a stripper but not knowing that you have to get naked, simply wouldn't be credible.



  70. 70

    5"8 and 132 is good, so i think its more 5"8 and 160 or something other than that 5"8 and 132 isnt shit thats perfect, so girl walk your ass on out move to vegas where the real money is serving $500 + bottles to sexy man with real money..not serving hot wings to fat nasty bigs that are going to judge you

    Where's my comment? Yeah. You don't want to give them any REAL information.
    Perez never, ever did that. Ever. If I give you a crass comment with the word TITTS like comment number one, you'll put it up.

  77. 77

    Re: candycaynegirl – Yea well no offense to anybody i dont want to make 7.50 an hour. You obviously must be a closed minded person. What the fuck do you wear to the beach? Honeslty you probably have an issue with yourself if your going to down people who you have never met before. Very shameful if you ask me. And I have average size tits sweetheart. It all has to do with personality. Also what is your career and how old are you?



  78. 78

    hey… the women that work at hooters CHOOSE to work at hooters, knowing very well they have to wear skanky "uniforms". o_O and if they're asking her to loose the weight it must be for a reason. disgusting? yes. but that is hooters for-ya.



  79. 79

    Ahahahahaha. Stupid fat bitch, what did she expect? Nobody wants to see a fat chick stuffed in those clothes.

    perez, even IF she wins the lawsuit it's not like they will suffer much of a loss. Come on. You're so fucking stupid. They aren't "forced" into wearing the uniform. They are fully aware of the UNIFORM.

    And come on people, take the weight she told you and add 10-20 pounds to that to get her REAL weight.



  80. 80

    Re: Sheather3 – what do i wear to the beach?? What does that have to do with anything? Since you ask, when I lived near the beach I wore t-shirt and skirts because I lived in India before moving here (Vietnam). What did you want me to say "a skimpy bikini of course"? Talk about being closed-minded.
    I'm 23 and I traveled abroad to teach English which makes quite a decent income and is extremely easy to get into as an American, ESPECIALLY as a young female. So yeah, there ARE plenty of other options than relying on your "personality" (please) and reducing yourself to a fake smile and pair of "Hooters" to make money.

    Just like they can get away with only hiring female servers, and allowing their servers to wear their hair down, and allowing their servers to bare their middrifts - they will get away with this, too. This girl is obviously just pissed off but she has no legal leg to stand on.

    When you're hired as a Hooter's Girl - they take a Polaroid. Then you attend IMAGE CLASS. Where you're taught how to wear the uniform properly, the acceptable amount of make up, the appropriate nail polish and manicure standards, grooming standards, hair standards, and shoe standards. Hooters is all about the IMAGE of the SERVERS - DUH. Just like if you were casting a role in a movie that called for an overweight African American male, a skinny white girl could not sue for being denied that part. That's how Hooters won the FIRST ridiculous ass lawsuit when men tried to sue to become servers. Hooters isn't like other restaurants nor do they have to be. They're more in the entertainment business than they are food service, obviously. Otherwise they wouldn't wear those outfits, they'd wear their hair up in ponytails, and wouldn't get near the business they do. Hooters also does a LOT of charity work and raises tons of money for breast cancer.

    i have no sympathy for this girl, if she deems working at hooters to be an appropriate career move.

    135 pounds for someone who is 5'8 IS overweight, i'm about 6'0 and i weigh 135 pounds, she's fat!

    I completely agree with hooters, the whole point of the staff is for them to have big tits, be slim and hot. Clearly she put on weight after getting the job as they wouldn't hire a fat person to begin with.



  86. 86

    5'8 and 132 is a slim and healty weight!!



  87. 87

    LOL demeaning towards women? Are you kidding me? Girl's get by on their looks all the time due to guys having the maturity of frat boys and that are easily swayed by girls. Girl's know damn well that the outfits are skimpy. And that big piece of paper she has to sign probably says "Model that serves" which mean they can indeed fire you for weight gains,etc…Besides the same girls that work there end up marrying 70 year old dying men.

    It's generally in their contract that they cannot be overweight, when their job is reliant on them being attractive, but this girl doesn't sound overweight at all. She could be lying about her weight, because Hooters girls aren't supposed to be stick thin, and 132lbs and 5'8" would be very thin.
    I'm 5'4" and weight that, and I'm in no way overweight - I wear a size 4!!! And she's 4 inches taller.
    Re: italianvenus – No shame in working at Hooters. I have a friend who paid for medical school by working there.

    Re: tailkinker

    I thought of UB the minute I read this. That one manager was treating girls so bad and he got a real dressing down from the CEO. I wonder what he'd have to say about this…



  91. 91

    Those outfits don't leave much to the imagination!! And to even look good in it who have to be the size of a thin twig!! Also they are fast food chain!! It's not a good look when you sack thin girls for apparently looking fat when the food they produce makes you fat!!

    Well, mod, this was sweet, but you're making my ears bleed, so I'm off.



  93. 93

    No one is forced to work at Hooters. It's the women that work there, that demean themselves by chosing to work somewhere that requires them to wear that uniform. They put themselves out there for all types of unwanted advances and comments.



  94. 94

    Silly breeders!

    No one FORCES them to wear that suit. They know what it looks like when they take the job. I do think it's ridiculous that they are trying to tell her lose weight or lose her job, but unfortunately she's probably not the biggest money maker there. I'd probably chose lose my job, but then again I don't think being a Hooter's waitress is the most glorious job out there.

    I have a question to ask; If this was a story about a girl that played Cinderella, or Belle, or one of many other characters at Disney World and she was told she could no longer be Cinderella due to not being able to fit into the costume, would this be a story for them? I think not. This is NO different. The Hooters Girl is a role, a character, and a key part to the Hooters concept. They have a standard and a uniform (i.e. costume) and if you don't fit into it correctly the image is tarnished and the concept is ruined. Hooters is not Hooters without the Hooters Girl image. Cinderella is not Cinderella if she has a muffin top. Sorry, it is what it is. It's a role they know they are playing when they are hired. When you no longer fit that image or into the costume then it is an issue that must be addressed. What is next, roles in Hollywood for movies? Broadway? Cheerleaders for the NFL?



  97. 97

    I have a friend about that weight and height and she in thin. And her body is banging! Damn, how skinny do you want a girl to be.



  98. 98

    A friend of mine works at Hooters and they recently told her in a review that she needed to change her name because it was too 'ethnic' sounding. (It is a greek name). And she isn't a bimbo, she's a graduate student. And she did know what she was in for when she got a job there, required to tan, workout, get their hair done etc. That didn't bother her. But changing her name because it sounds too 'ethnic'? Really?



  99. 99

    Uhm, How is being 5'8 and 132 pounds over weight? Really? Thats pretty damn slim if you fucking ask me. As a matter of factly that could be deemed underweigh. Then again, this is what this bitch gets for working at hooters. I mean hello! No one goes to hooters for the wings. What can you honestly expect? With that being said, Hooters needs to check themselves. They are hooters, not playboy. They need to fucking step off.
