“My Boss Fat-Shamed Me For Wearing A Crop Top During Shift, But Not My Petite Co-Workers”

The crop top isn’t rebuked for other small, petite workers.

Abigayle Canterbury isn’t taking any crop as she has virally called out the manager of her workplace for body-shaming her over wearing a crop top. The Plus-Size alleged the ensemble is frequently sported by petite co-workers without rebuke and that the company’s relaxed dress-code policy was part of what had attracted her.

But surprisingly, she got a harsh text message that pointed out that her midriff-baring outfit [pictured] worn during a shift was not approved.

The smoke shop staff alleged she was never made aware of work attire restrictions. “When I got this job. I was under the impression I could wear a crop top with some jeans and it’s not a big deal. I got a text message from my manager and the text message said, basically the business owner saw what I was wearing and he wanted to tell me to ‘cover the stomach.”

Abigayle shared a screenshot of the text thread, in which the manager instructed her to dress nicer and cover her body.

The buxom brunette, from Mobile Alabama, then said in her TikTok [now-deleted]: “I got dress-coded at this job that does not have a dress code. Make that make sense. You can’t. I’m also the only plus-size female that they had working. I’ve never been to one of their locations and seen a bigger girl working. It’s always been very small, petite girls, and they’ve always wore whatever they wanted.”

The full-figure employee has ultimately quit the gig after learning she was the only employee demanded to ‘cover the stomach.’

Abigayle had asked her slimmer work associates, who were rocking peekaboo tops and short bottoms if they’d ever received dress code rebukes. She was left stunned to learn she was the only staff lectured for her looks. In the comment of her clip, the TikToker claimed she had been donning a crop top when she was hired at the smoke shop chain and admitted the reprimand did ‘get under her skin.’

She questioned: “Cover my body? Have you seen your other f**king employees, bro?”

Outraged viewers have since shared similar accounts of body discrimination that they’d personally endured in the workplace. Someone confessed: “Yea as a woman that’s been thin and plus-size. I can definitely tell the difference of how I was treated. They were so nice to me when I was thin.” Another said: “So basically, you could sue for discrimination and you clearly have it in the text.”

As with the supportive remarks, Abigayle – in another video – shared she’d also received hateful ones from women.

She alleged the women have likely never faced fat discrimination and noted: “If you have never been singled out for your size, I pray that you never are because it’s a horrible f**king feeling. Nobody deserves to be treated like that based on their size or their race. Discrimination is discrimination. And what was done to me falls into that little f**king box.”
