A woman turned to Instagram to share how she was discriminated against when she went to a grocery store. Though she gained more followers from the fiasco, people say it was all a ruse!
There are rules in the United States saying, “No shoes, no shirt, no shorts, no service.”
However, though it’s not clearly stated, it seems establishments in Brazil have the same rules, as this Brazilian woman was kicked out for being too underdressed!
Who Is Kerolay Chaves?
Kerolay Chaves is a 21-year-old Brazilian woman from Belo Horizonte, Brazil. She’s a content creator popular in the country.
Although many people know her in Brazil, Kerolay Chaves noted that “her fame couldn’t keep her from getting in trouble.”
On her Instagram, Kerolay shared a post on April 21, 2023, explaining the details of her altercation with a local grocery store. She included the reasons why she was kicked out as well as her perspective.
It turns out that the grocery store kicked her out for wearing clothes that were “too short.”
She wrote, “Just back from the supermarket and was harassed for wearing ‘too short clothes.’”
I Was Harassed!
She shared the store’s reasoning along with her photos. Then, she also said, “Some people looked with prejudice, others swore at me, and in the end, I was expelled from the site. Do y’all believe it?”
Her captions were all translated from Portuguese.
As an online content creator, her post immediately garnered a lot of attention and went viral. It has since reached over 100,000 likes on Instagram and was shared on multiple social media platforms.
Kerolay Chaves has also done interviews and spoken to the Brazilian press about the “discrimination” she received. Then, on her Instagram, she said that the issue had broken borders, crossing over to international news.
Strong Feelings About the Issue
In one of her interviews, Kerolay shared her opinions on the concept of discrimination, especially when it came to women.
She said, “I think it’s absurd that we women are still treated like that just because we dress how we want. The truth is that we go through it because we’re too hot; it’s only possible!”
Two Sides of the Coin
Though Kerolay had a valid point, it’s hard to use her statement as an argument when it comes to her getting kicked out of the store.
Yes, women should be able to wear what they want. However, was her outfit really appropriate for a supermarket?
For a lot of people in the online community, Kerolay only wants more views and followers.
One said, “Anything to get hits on her site.” Another commented, “Yeah, inappropriate outfit—if you can even call it that. Got kicked out just like she probably intended so she could get more visitors.”
Users also pointed out that she probably got kicked out for more than just her outfit.
“Probably got kicked out because she was walking around putting a camera in everyone’s face,” said one woman.
You’re Not Being Honest
Some can’t believe that she was the one being harassed by customers.
This person said, “Adult entertainer was being harassed by customers. She isn’t telling the whole truth.” Another said, “It was definitely something else.”
It’s Not a Club
For the most part, the internet community was appalled by what Kerolay Chaves wore in a grocery store.
“Does she see what she was wearing? It’s a grocery store with children around, not a club,” said one man.
Though it’s good for a woman to have confidence, people feel what Kerolay showed was arrogance and conceitedness.
This user said, “Really? A thin line between arrogance and confidence is my view on this.” Another person said, “Ego and arrogance—not a good combination.”
Do you think she deserved to get kicked out? What would you tell her?
