Barbie fashionista loses job after tweets about ‘racist’ tweet about black people
- by admin
When the first Barbie Fashionista came to the world, she was not a “fashionista.”
Rather, she had spent her childhood with her grandmother and aunt on a farm in southern California.
For a while, she worked for a local company that manufactured and sold jewelry.
In 2011, she took on the task of working at the company as a barista.
For the next several years, she would often work in shifts.
She made $7 an hour, but when she moved on to the Fashionista position, her boss told her she could no longer work that long.
In response, Barbie posted a series of tweets about how she felt.
The tweets, which included comments about “Black people” and references to the word “bitch,” went viral.
Over time, her employers started to realize that their decision was based on a misunderstanding.
“I was a little bit upset,” Barbie told Mic.
“It was not an intentional thing to make it about Black people.”
They then offered her a promotion, and when she refused, she ended up losing her job.
“We didn’t know what to do about it.
We just sort of stopped,” she said.
The backlash was swift and overwhelming.
She lost her job within days of her first tweet.
Barbie’s employer contacted the company that produced the brand, and in the end, they accepted her apology.
Barbiie’s first tweet had only been directed at Black people.
But the tweets made her a target for online trolls, who attacked her for not understanding that the comments were about race and race-based issues.
Barbie was upset by the whole ordeal.
“There was definitely a lot of anger and hate in my head,” she says.
“And that’s just kind of my reality, my reality of life, and my reality with people who have my skin color.”
She eventually wrote an apology, which she says she shared with her co-workers, but that they weren’t supportive of her decision.
When Barbie first became a Fashionista, she spent a lot time reading up on fashion and fashion trends.
She continued to be a Fashionist after her initial firing, and says that she still enjoys her job, despite the negative response she received. “
she says, “because I’m black.
“That’s why I think that it’s so important to be aware of that.” “
Because I am an American citizen, and I have a right to wear the same color as anyone else, I just think that’s awesome,” she told Mic in an interview.
“That’s why I think that it’s so important to be aware of that.”
The company Barbie was fired from is no stranger to controversy.
The company was fined $4.2 million by the US government for violating the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) for their alleged discriminatory practices.
The Federal Trade Commission investigated the company for the same reason, and found that Barbie did not have the required training.
In addition to the $4 million penalty, Barbiies employer also agreed to a $15,000 fine.
But it wasn’t enough to prevent the company from receiving a $5 million settlement.
Baribs attorney, Matthew DeAngelis, told Mic that Baribies attorneys had reached a settlement with Barbie in March 2018, and that the company is still considering the possibility of paying back the $15 million.
“The company is very pleased to be able to come to a resolution,” DeAngeles told Mic, “and we look forward to bringing it to the court and settling.”
While the company has received a lot more support from its fans, Bariabi’s first lawsuit against the company was not particularly successful.
It was not filed until June of 2018, nearly a year after Barbie made her first tweets.
The lawsuit, filed by the National Association of Fashion Designers and Publishers, alleged that Barie had violated the FLSA by using her position as a Fashion Artist to make profits from her products.
Barrios lawsuit claimed that the tweets violated the law, and argued that Barbies employment practices violated federal and state anti-discrimination laws.
The suit alleged that the “anti-discrimination law does not protect the right of an employer to make money from its employees, and does not prohibit the employer from discriminating against an employee based on her race, sex, or national origin.”
While Bariberas claims that it is aware of the backlash against the tweets, it is also facing backlash online.
“If you’re a fashionista, there’s probably going to be some backlash,” Bari-Barre, the fashion designer, told the Washington Post.
“But we do not feel the backlash was directed at us.
We felt the backlash directed at Barbie.”
“There’s nothing wrong with being offended,” Barri-Bouches lawyer, Matthew deAngelis told Mic
