Company tries to “slut-shame” job candidate for Instagram post, blows up in their face beautifully

Getting a decent job that you’re happy to rock up to each day is pretty important in the grand scheme of things. Most of us will be working for 50 or 60 odd years, so you may as well try and get work doing something ya enjoy. 

Applying for jobs and finding an industry that ticks all the boxes can be hard. Even more so now that employers can stalk ya online and find out a hell of a lot more info than what’s probably on your resume.

That was the case for a young sheila named Emily Clow, who applied for a position with a company called Kickass Mastermind – yeah, nah, sounds legit, but ok. The bloke that seems to do the hiring and firing at Kickass Mastermind took issue with a photo on Emily’s Instagram.

This is Emily’s Instagram post in question:

gotta cool off somehow

To me this is a chick taking a dip in the pool and cooling off. There’s nothing illegal going here as far as I can tell.

But Kickass Mastermind in their infinite wisdom thought it was appropriate to screen shot, and upload this pic to their business’ Instagram story with a few choice adjustments.

The text added by Kickass Masterminds implies that Emily is doing something wrong, as opposed to just doing whatever the f**k she likes during her spare time like everyone else. Yeah, nah. Shame on you Emily for living ya best life FFS.

I fail to see what a pair of red cossies and a tiny bit of breasticle action has do to with her job application, but I’m not real clever when it comes to corporate bulls**t.

Emily fired back on Twitter:

The twitterverse erupted in defence of Emily’s Baywatch inspired get-up, unleashing a raging s**tstorm on @kickassmasterminds via their Instagram account. Their Instagram account that has now been switched from public to private… Funny that. Can’t imagine that will be real good for business.

Final Thought:

Kickass Mastermind is way outta line here. They are well within their rights to check out candidates online, no dramas! But keep ya bloody opinions and your judgemental f**kery to yourself.

Kickass Masterminds claims a pair of red togs is “unprofessional…” Making assumptions about someones character based on clothing ain’t real professional now is it?
