“Their motto is ‘beauty through trust’ and this is the email I received from the vice president [vice president]. “

Gracie then shows a screenshot of an email, which reads, “This girl is just out of college (Hope College) and not so cute.

“She applied for the role of sales model. Do you really want me to interview her?

At this point, a visibly unimpressed Gracie reappears in the shot and says, “‘Not so cute’. OK. OK.”

TikTokers was quick to comment, with one user saying, “VP of operations and he doesn’t understand” CC everything “???”

Another person suggested it had an adverse impact on the company’s online reviews, saying, “Reviews have gone from 4.9 to 1.7. You are all powerful.”

Laura went on to say that they had received death threats for what had happened.

She said: “We appreciate your support, we are going to call her someday, our phone numbers are there, our address is there, our children have been threatened.”
