Hooters reverses decision mandating new short shorts after social media backlash from servers

Update: Hooters has backed off it’s new bikini-style short mandate after it caught significant backlash online from a few outspoken servers.

“As we continue to listen and update the image of the Hooters Girls, we are clarifying that they have the option to choose from traditional uniforms or the new ones,” a Hooters America rep wrote in an e-mail to Business Insider, according to a report published Sunday.

However, not all employees were against the new uniforms, with one claiming she was making “way more money” with the new outfit and another showing off claiming “they really aren’t that bad.”

Hooter’s girls are less than pleased with the new uniform, one that has them double-cheeked and hanging in the wind.

The new shorts, which have very little backside coverage, offer little modesty compared to the previous “short shorts.”

TikTok-savvy Hooter’s girls have taken to the internet to complain, with several making videos to protest their new workwear.

“Oh look, a wedgie!” exclaimed Hooters waitress Kristen Songer exclaimed in a video.

According to the New York Post, a notice read that, “Starting Oct. 4, all Hooters girls should wear the new shorts when working once they arrive to stores,” and  “The old shorts should not be worn.”

Those who resign are eligible for re-hire.
