Nina Osegueda claims she was fired for being ‘too sexy’

A woman claimed that since she was a little child, the way people regarded her has been influenced by her body form.

In the caption of her now-viral TikTok, 38-year-old Nina Osegueda wrote, “I was punished twice at 2 different offices for wearing “inappropriately.” It’s just the shape of me.

The Washington, DC, resident claimed in the video, which has received more than 5.5 million views, that no matter what she wears, it will always be judged to be “wrong” because of her curves.

She said, “I discovered that no matter how professionally I’m dressed, my body is so distracting that I will never be dressed sufficiently for the workplace.”

Osegueda, who is also the lead singer of the heavy metal band A Sound of Thunder, claimed in a previous TikTok that she was fired twice from her job as a software trainer because her managers thought she appeared “too sexy” in her uniform. She also acknowledged that she has experienced body shaming since she was a teenager.

The 38-year-old said that adults often commented on her appearance while she was in school and that she was even fat shamed by teachers.

“I spent the most of my childhood as a member of the swim team, but as soon as I entered my teen years, my teammates and coaches started to bully me. She told the Daily Star, “One instructor, an adult woman, advised me to’shake the fat off those thighs’ as a way of motivating me to move quicker.

Osegueda claimed that while she was enrolled in a high school theatre programme, her lecturers advised her to stick to comedy and submit her acting resume for “funny fat girl” roles.

I didn’t have the appropriate “look” for a starring actress, I explained. I was certain of my preferences.

“My office buddy also experienced similar issue. Regardless of how modestly she was clothed, despite her body shaking, she was constantly referred to HR due to complaints. Just sad,” said one user.

“This other woman felt ‘threatened,’ it was the way she ‘walked,’ and she wanted to sue,” my supervisor reported to HR. Another person said.

The woman added, “As a CHILD in middle school I got dressed coded for wearing the same clothes that other girls were, but I had more, let’s say assets, by then.

It is not the first time a woman has experienced prejudice because of the way she looks. When a lady sought to leave her gym last month, she said she was “fat shamed” and told she had to complete the personal evaluation.
