Marie Dee, who goes by @notmariedee on TikTok, recently posted a video of the HR violation that allegedly led her to being sent home. In the TikTok video, which has more than 27m views, the 28-year-old is seen wearing a black, midi bodycon dress with short-sleeves.

“Guys, it happened again. I’m getting sent home for my outfit,” the text overlay read. “This time the HR girl approached me. I’m about to ask her.”

As she filmed herself confronting the HR representative, the specialist is heard saying: “I’m sorry, you still can’t wear that. It’s way too revealing and distracting.”

“It’s distracting?” Marie asked, to which the HR rep replied: “Very.”

TikTok users were shocked that Marie’s simple black outfit was deemed too revealing, and took to the comments section to share their thoughts on the supposed dress code violation.

“You look stunning!” one person wrote.

“That looks like regular corporate attire to me,” said someone else.

“I’m an HR leader and I think your outfit is professional and polished!” a third user said.

A number of TikTokers also believed that the HR employee was simply “jealous” of Marie’s outfit, and sent her home in retaliation.
