AS she was getting ready for work last week, Vanessa Zavala didn't think twice about putting on a chic long-sleeved crop top.
But as she arrived at the bar and restaurant, the TikTok user claims she was sent home over her "inappropriate" outfit.
In a viral TikTok video, Vanessa hit back at her managers who claimed she'd violated their dress code.
While sobbing in the back of a car, the waitress said: "I work at this bar-restaurant club thing where b***** will show up there in f***ing corsets, lingerie tops to work.
"But MY shirt, my long-sleeve crop top shirt is f***ing ugly and inappropriate."
After the clip racked up over 520,000 views, Vanessa said in a follow-up video that she was fired from her job – even though she didn't mention the name of her workplace.

"I go to work the next day and everything is fine. The manager pulled me into his office," she added. "I got fired for posting a TikTok expressing how I felt even though I didn't name drop. Now I'm broke and unemployed."
Speculating how her bosses saw the video, Vanessa said: "Someone definitely sent my video to the owners and they were like, ‘OK, even though she didn’t name drop, even though she didn’t even say anything bad about the restaurant we’re going to have to fire her a** because she’s talking about us.'
"That’s why I literally got fired, because it’s privately f***ing owned by three men and obviously if I’m on the internet crying, even if I didn’t name drop, of course they’re going to f***ing fire me.
"I didn’t get a warning, they didn’t say can you take down the video, I didn’t name drop anyone."

Unsurprisingly, the videos sparked fierce debate among viewers.
"I’m so sorry girl I hope a new job comes your way that fits better," one wrote.
Another added: "BYE they wish they look as good as you."
Jumping to the owner's defence, a third said: "I know being dress coded isn’t fun and this situation sounds unfair but people need to learn how to dress professionally for work."
A fourth wrote: "Maybe there's a certain look their place goes for and a long sleeve crop top wasn't it?"
