A Russian DJ has lost her day job for reportedly being too sexy after her bosses spotted a series of provocative pictures online, according to Mirror.co.uk
Eleonora Verbitskaya worked as a bureaucrat at the Administrative Infringements Enforcement Office – but bosses at the company took a dim view of a photoshoot she recently completed.
Eleonora, who goes by the stage name DJ Ellis Sexton, had been employed in a junior position at the office in St Petersburg, in north-western Russia, where she claims to have already been in line for a promotion.
But she turned up for work one day to find a note saying she was fired, which she claims came out of the blue and was completely contradictory to the earlier promises of professional advancement.
And when she enquired as to why, she found the note had been passed on to her after her bosses found provocative pictures of her on the internet taken to promote her DJ career.
Her lawyer Maxim Youshin said she was illegally dismissed for being “too sexy.”
He explained: “According to the Russian law, she did not do anything wrong. It is rather a moral question right now.”
