Man Who Wears Makeup To Work Told To Take It Off, Here Is How He Responded

The shop worker from Wakefield, West Yorkshire says he has been working at the shop for eight months but this is the first time he was rebuked by his managers for wearing make-up.

Scott, feeling discriminated, voiced out his anger to his social media and argued that this was a case of double standard treatment by the managers, which was said to be under a new management. 

“Earlier on in the week I came to work as my fabulous self and was told to take off my makeup.

I was quite shocked... After I refused, I'm getting told to tone it down? Excuse me? Tone it down? You can't tone down a masterpiece.” he wrote, Daily Mail reports.

His vent on Facebook was shared more than 3,000 overnight and people were on the same boat, agreeing that he shouldn’t be treated any less than the female workers.

Before explaining his frustrations, Scott claimed that the shop didn’t have any make-up policy at work.

Taking pride on his right, Scott said he would understand if the policy was meant to all workers. But when the rules only applied to him (as a male worker), he thought it was unfair considering his female colleagues wore heavier makeups than he did.

“If women can wear makeup then so can I. It can’t be one rule for one and another rule for another. It’s not right and it’s not fair.”

Scott also included a photo of proof showing his light makeup and claimed it was taken moments after the disagreement.

“‘This is 2017, a time of year where we celebrate Pride throughout summer and I look hella hot so deal with it!” he added.

However, a spokesman for Currys PC World said, "This was a local store level misunderstanding that is being dealt with internally. Scott takes pride in his appearance and Currys PC World is proud of its diverse workforce."

Nevertheless, instead of criticizing, let’s start accepting and appreciate each other so we can work happily in a more harmonious environment!
