A selfie shared by a Home Depot employee has recently caused a stir online, as she confidently declares herself “too pretty” to work at the hardware store.
Home Depot Shakes Up Social Media
Ariana Josephine, tweeted a photo of herself donning an orange apron, accompanied by a statement that her job as a paint mixer at the Texas-based chain store is the only one where she constantly gets reminded of her being “too pretty” to work there.
Josephine’s tweet quickly gained widespread attention on the social media platform and caused “Home Depot” to dominate Twitter trends non-stop for several days.
A Wave of Positivity
The employee received an outpouring of positive and supportive responses on social media, with many users expressing agreement with her self-assessment of her beauty and showing respect for her determination to work while pursuing a college degree.
Vashaun Blanks expressed his support by stating, "I wouldn't go to Lowe's no more."
Adam Beezee joined the agreement by sharing a meme depicting someone examining the results of a lie detector test, humorously indicating that no lies were detected in Josephine's statements.
Even famous NBA player Shaquille O'Neal got shared his thoughts. According to Legion Hoops, he sent a direct message to Josephine, advising her not to let the negative people bother her. He later added a lighthearted comment, saying, "Have a great day! Tell all your boyfriends I said hello lol."
The tweet also led several Home Depot women to share their own photos, showcasing that "pretty women" are fully capable of pursuing any career they desire.
While many responses were supportive, Josephine also encountered criticism from certain Twitter users who expressed disagreement with her perspective on work. “Any girl with this mindset is a serious,” one user commented.
Another critic stated, “Bro, these young ladies need prayer. They seek the attention of others too much. They need to be validated every five minutes.”
The user further remarked on the contradiction between Josephine's claim of being a "follower of Christ" in her Twitter profile and her profile photo, which, according to him, indicates a desire for admiration from men who likely “ do not follow Christ.”
Ariana Josephine Responds
While Ariana Josephine received praise for her profession from the majority of her followers, there were some who suggested she should start an OnlyF..ns page.
However, she stressed that she has no intention of creating an OnlyF..ns account and shared that her father advised her that not all money is worth pursuing.
Josephine clarified that her position at Home Depot is her job while she attends college, emphasizing the attractive benefits it provides. The Texas-based employee shared, “I don’t think I am too pretty to work anywhere. I work at Home Depot because it’s a decent job that pays good while i’m in school.”
“Please stop taking social media to heart. God bless.”
Facing Harassment and Doxxing
The initial tweet that Josephine posted has now escalated into a safety concern for her. In an update TikTok video, she revealed that she had to make the difficult decision of resigning from her job because people had managed to discover her work location.
Moreover, the ex-employee shared that she has been doxxed, which refers to the act of publicly sharing someone's personal information online with the intention to harass or intimidate them.
Due to this distressing situation, Josephine expressed that she will likely need to "relocate and start fresh," meaning she will have to leave her current town and school behind in order to ensure her well-being and establish a new beginning in a different, hopefully safer location.
