A 27-year-old former model, Claudia Ardelean, was reportedly ordered to resign from a job at a hospital because critics say “she was too beautiful.”
Claudia, who has a double degree in law and European ethics, was asked to work unpaid on the board of the Pneumophthisiology Clinical Hospital in Romania.
She was delighted about her appointment and posted about it on the social media, the same day she got the job on February 8.
Sharing a selfie in front of the council building, the beauty queen wrote: “I am thankful for the trust and support of the Cluj National Liberal Party!”
Immediately after the post went viral, the former model started receiving criticisms from trolls who claimed she only got the job because of her looks.
Claudia, who has a large following on Instagram of 41,000 where she shared news of the job, was subsequently forced to resign because she is “too beautiful.”
When contacted, Cluj council president, Alin Tise admitted that Claudia was well qualified with a double degree in European studies and from the faculty of law.
Nevertheless Alin made a statement saying: “I deeply regret the incident. I requested the resignation of Claudia Ardelean.”
Meanwhile, KanyiDaily had reported how a 19-year-old model, Chloe Davison, committed suicide after she failed to get enough “likes” on her photos on social media.
