Woman Who Was Fired From Citi For Being “Too Hot” And Her Lawyer Have A Couple More Points To Make (Update: Citi Has Something Else To Say As Well)By Bess Levin
Point number one, as a message to future employers considering requesting that Debs bring her hotness level down to the level of the rest of the office, she’d like to get it out there: “I’m not going to go eat and gain 50 or 100 pounds because my job wants me to be the same size as everyone else.” And point number two, from Lorenzana’s lawyer Jack Tuckner, (the guy who argued yesterday that asking his client not to be so hot because it was a distraction from work “is like saying, ‘we can’t think anymore ’cause our penises are standing up’,” and who was also the one who came up with the idea to have her pose in a bunch of outfits and positions, such as the one at left, to prove there was nothing inappropriate about her sartorial picks) is simply this:
“Debrahlee Lorenzana would be very attractive in a burka,” said her lawyer Jack Tuckner, of Tuckner Sipser Weinstock & Sipser.
So…anyway. Shall we play a rousing game of Tomorrow’s Statement From Jack Tuckner Today? I’ll start: “Debrahlee could wearing a used Hefty bag and I would still want to be on her.” Now you go.
Update Citi has a new statement out: “Ms. Lorenzana has chosen to make numerous unfounded accusations and inaccurate statements against Citibank and several of our employees. While we will not discuss the details of her case, we can say that her termination was solely performance-based and not at all related to her appearance or attire. We are confident that when all of the facts and documentation are presented, the claim will be dismissed.”
