AMY-ERIN BLAKELY FIRED FOR HAVING BIG BREASTS

ORLANDO, Fla. –  Amy-Erin Blakely,  was fired from her job because her breasts were too big.

Amy-Erin Blakely filed the lawsuit in an Orange County court on Wednesday and said the harassment at The Devereux Foundation went on for about five years.

Here are the breasts in question:

Blakely managed 900 employees at the nonprofit behavioral health organization that also provides foster and adoptive assistance. Blakely says she worked for the organization in Orlando until she was fired last year after she accused managers of sexual harassment, according to CBS affiliate WKMG.

“It was very humiliating to know that senior members of our management team would focus on my breasts as opposed to my performance on the job,” said Blakely at a Los Angeles press conference Wednesday.

“She also alleges that someone in management talked about how large her breasts were and that she needed to ‘hide them,'” Allred told the station.

Allred has also represented Debrahlee Lorenzana, a New York woman who claimed earlier this year that her employer, CitiBank, fired her because of her sex appeal.

lakely said she complained last spring about her treatment and was reprimanded; she complained again last fall and was fired the next day.

The nonprofit would not say why Blakely was fired.

Blakely said she always dressed professionally, was an exemplary worker and had never before been reprimanded. In fact, she said she was promoted and given raises eight times in 13 years. The 43-year-old had risen to the position of Assistant Executive Director, but claims she couldn’t advance any further because her managers said she was “too sensual.”

In a statement, Devereux CEO Robert Krieder said, “We have not received the formal complaint, which has apparently just been filed with the court today. Ms. Allred has, however, shared details of the allegations and we can tell you that they are purposefully inflammatory, and either spurious or twisted in content and context.”
