Asda Staff ‘Tried To Kick Out’ Student Because Of What She Was Wearing

“I don’t respect myself, is that what you’re saying?”

Jaiah, a 22-year-old student, was stunned when Asda workers tried to kick her out of the store for being “basically naked.” The incident was recorded by the student as it took place in a store branch located in the Isle of Dogs.

The worker told her, “We can see your body almost; the manager is coming right now.”

She then turned the camera around and showed what she was wearing; a crop top layered with a jacket and a pair of jogging pants. She also had a mask on, an appearance considered risque-free and pretty standard for a quick shop at the grocery store.

She took the video on Twitter to address the problem.

“So tonight in Asda, Isle of Dogs, I was told by an employee that I wasn’t wearing enough clothes, I wasn’t respecting myself, that I’m basically naked and I shouldn’t be in there,” she wrote. “Honestly, the most disgusting behavior.”

“I don’t respect myself. Is that what you’re saying?” she asked the staff again.

People were horrified by the man’s act towards a woman who’s covered up at the shop. One asked, “What impulse do you think, @AsdaServiceTeam, led your employer to abuse this customer? Plain old misogyny? Plain old misogyny reinforced by some ideology? Conviction his abuse of customers would be tolerated or encouraged by his colleagues?”

“Seems your employee has a personal view of women disrespecting themselves. She dressed fine and obviously takes pride in her appearance and time over it. I think he needs to change his attitude, and #Asda needs to tell him so,” wrote another.

Another commented, “Please tell me this guy has been sacked @AsdaServiceTeam. Absolutely bizarre and no right to harass and then attempt to implement his own made-up ‘rules’. Blatant sexism/misogyny as I doubt he would accost a male he felt ‘inappropriately’ dressed.”

Asda has offered an apology to the woman, clearing up that this is not an existing policy in Asda.

The company’s spokesperson shared, “As soon as we were made aware of this incident, we launched an investigation within the store. We have been in contact with Jaiah to explain that this is not our policy and to apologize for the negative experience they had on this occasion.”
