21-year-old Melody Morales, a former Hooters girl, is suing Hawaiian Tropic Zone in New York City, citing “racism.”
Managers at the Times Square restaurant allegedly refused Morales a job, saying she was “too ghetto.”
The suit alleges that Morales went to the restaurant with her mom in March seeking a job. “You don’t speak white,” Morales claims she was told by one manager. “I am not going to ruin my business with your Latin accent.”
She then returned months later, still in search of a job, and was allegedly told by another manager, “We will not hire you because you have a speech problem,” and “You have a Latin accent.”
According to Morales’ lawyer, “Melody certainly has the assets for this job.”
“Not to brag, but I look good in a bikini,” Morales said Tuesday. “I could have done a perfect job there.”
A spokesman for Hawaiian Tropic Zone issued a statement saying Morales’ suit is baseless.
The restaurant is currently facing a $600 million federal suit from four former female workers accusing an ex-boss of sickening sexual antics.
