A TikToker’s experience of being told she could be fired from her job because of her still face has attracted over 1.6 million views on the platform.
Poster Cece (@lilcecesworld) said her new boss at her duty job confronted her with her still face, which she says the manager described as “miserable.”
“Get ready with me to get fired from my job, which I literally just started,” she says in the video. “I’ve had multiple jobs since I was 15 and I’ve never been fired, so I just think that’s funny. Yesterday, at the end of my shift, my supervisor said, ‘Hey, I need to talk to you.’ I was like, ‘Oh my god, you scare me so much.’”
Cece says the manager took her aside and told her her face looked so miserable at work that “she wasn’t thinking.” [Cece] was well suited for the job.”

She goes on to say that she generally has to subconsciously control her face since her resting face looks “miserable.”
“So I’ll see if I get fired today for having an ugly face at work,” she says. “It’s just a minimum wage waiter job, I honestly don’t care if they fire me.”
In a follow-up video, Cece tells how they didn’t fire her in the end, but instead asked her to come on her day off because they were “understaffed.”

The Daily Dot contacted Cece via Instagram direct message regarding the video.
Viewers shared their own experiences of being fired for odd reasons.
“I was released from a vet clinic in early January because they didn’t find my personality ‘bubbly’ enough,” one user wrote.
“I got fired from a dog daycare for not fitting in, and I worked alone with the dogs most of the time,” said another viewer.
“My first job told me I was losing their business because of my looks,” one commenter wrote. “I told him good luck finding a new server and got out.”
