After 85,000 shares on Facebook, this Texas woman lost her job over her engagement photos A plus-size woman says she has been fired from her bank job after her steamy topless photoshoot with her fiancé went viral.
Stephanie, from Texas, was widely praised for promoting body confidence after the pictures of her and her partner Arryn were shared online. But she now says her employer has sacked her because they believed the shoot was ‘inappropriate’ for a ‘family-oriented’ company.
The bank worker, who is five months pregnant, describes herself as a ‘model employee’ and says the decision by Austin Bank Texas N.A to fire her was ‘hurtful’.
Stephanie told Buzzfeed: ‘They said I was topless and it was inappropriate and we’re a family-oriented company.’
She added: ‘I was a model employee, I was moving up fast. I had a promotion within seven months. This one thing, for me, was the reason I was booted.’
MailOnline has contacted Austin Bank Texas N.A for comment. The photoshoot, taken by Bria Terry of Wolf & Rose Photography, has been shared more than 85,000 times since the photographer shared the stunning lakeside images on her Facebook page.
