Woman Claims Banana Republic Manager Punished Her Over Braids

 

Destiny Tompkins of New York took to Facebook last week to accuse a Banana Republic store outside of New York City where she works of discrimination.

In her now viral post, Tompkins claims that the manager of a Banana Republic inside the Westchester Mall told Tompkins that her braided hair was “too ‘urban’ and ‘unkempt’’’ for the store’s image. Adding that the braids were not “Banana Republic appropriate.”

Tompkins’ Facebook post reads:

After her post went viral, Tompkins told ABC 7 that she plans on quitting her job and is considering legal action. She says she wants this manager to apologize, to be disciplined, and to understand why she was offended by the comments.

In a statement to The Cut, a Banana Republic’s spokesperson did not respond when asked if braids violated company policy. They did, however, reply with this:

“As a company, we have zero tolerance for discrimination. We take this matter very seriously and we are actively conducting an investigation. We are committed to upholding an inclusive environment where our customers and our employees feel respected.”

In a later statement, the chain confirmed that the store manager has been terminated.

Commenters blasted Banana Republic on the post:

Cleaning Woman’s Coworkers Surprise Her With Her Very Own Car

 

Not many people really enjoy going to work in the morning, but for this Tennesee woman, it was a struggle just to get there every day.

Linda Walton has worked for the cleaning company Pristine Clean and Organizational Services for two months, and she hasn’t missed a day of work. It’s pretty impressive, considering how long it takes her to get there — close to three hours. Walton didn’t have a car, so she’d either have to depend on others for rides or take the bus for two hours, then walk the rest of the way for 40 minutes. Her coworkers had no idea how dedicated she was to the job until one of them drove her home when her ride didn’t show up.

That’s why the company’s employees decided to pitch in and buy her a car.

Grateful doesn’t come close to describing how she felt when they surprised her.

They even covered the first month of insurance and gave her money for gas!

Brown Bears In Armenia Are Forced To Live In Tiny Cages To Entertain People

 

Wild animals are often exploited for the benefit or entertainment of other people. Brown bears in Armenia are, unfortunately, no exception.

Across the former Soviet republic are captive bears housed in small cages at restaurants, bus depots, shopping centers and even factories. Many were caught as cubs and forced to spend their lives in these tiny prisons, all for the entertainment of tourists, diners, commuters, and shoppers. Thats why the non-profit organization International Animal Rescue (IAR) has launched The Great Bear Rescue, a mission to save them.

“Some have been living for years in small, barren cages, surviving only on scraps and filthy, stagnant water and standing on stinking mounds of their own feces,” said IAR Chief Executive Alan Knight.

“Many of them relieve their boredom and frustration by pacing endlessly to and fro, banging their heads against the walls or climbing up the bars, searching frantically for an escape route.”

“They have been robbed of their dignity and their freedom, all for people’s idle entertainment. It sickens me.”

Mom Pokes Fun At Her Brother By Recreating His Modeling Photos With Her Son

 

Siblings making fun of each other to elicit a reaction is nothing new.

From your looks and what you wear to all your personal interests, brothers and sisters are there to embarrass and humiliate you every step of the way — even when you’re grown up! That’s what New York-based model Aristotle Polites deals with from his older sister, Katina Behm, but at least in her case, all the teasing is good-natured.

Behm loves poking fun at Polites’ modeling photos with her own hilarious (and adorable) twist. With her 18-month-old son, Augie’s, help, she recreates the pictures with the toddler standing in as the model and mimicking his uncle’s poses.

She says it all began when she couldn’t get Augie into his plaid shirt. “The image of him with the shirt undone and his bare chest exposed made me laugh because he looked like he belonged on the cover of a romance novel,” she told HuffPost. “I took a picture and then realized I bet my brother Aris has a picture just like this on his Instagram page which is filled with modeling photos.”

After making family members laugh with the comparison, she started creating side-by-side photos of the two and sharing them on Instagram with the question, “Who wore it better?”

More often than not, her followers choose Augie as the winner.
