Is It Cos I Is Ginger? Sarah Prinner Sees Red

The mother of three had suffering six months of harassment at the café where she worked over the colour of her hair, which is red.

The night manager of the Rendezvous Café, a Turkish man apparently known only as Zia, had made a series of lewd and embarrassing comments to Prinner, including enquiring about the colour of her pubic hair.

Prinner was dismissed from the job last October after a legitimate sick note was not accepted by her employer, and in the months following, she spent £90 every three months keeping her hair straight and blonde.

At the tribunal, Prinner tells us: “I was teased about my red hair at school and called coppernob and Duracell, but no-one had mentioned the colour of my hair to me for years. I have been in lots of jobs and no-one had mentioned the colour of my hair. When I complained I was told I was racist.”

Typical…
