Woman Fired Because of Her Afro?

NY Women Claims She Was Fired For Refusing to ‘Tame’ Her Afro

NYC woman sues former job, claiming they fired her because of her afro.

Former AEG employee Tiffany Bryan recently filed a $900,000 lawsuit in a Brooklyn federal court after claiming the company fired her for refusing to “tame” her large afro.

Bryan, a 27-year-old bone-marrow cancer survivor, decided to go natural in 2008 when her hair began growing back following chemotherapy treatments and refused to change her signature style, even when her job was on the line.
