INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.- A woman in Southport says she’s offended after receiving an award from her employer for having the “Best Butt” on staff.
The woman, who has asked not to be named, is a waitress at Scotty’s Brewhouse in Southport. She says on Monday night, during an event where staff was given awards, she received the accolade in full view of about fifty coworkers.
The woman says that when the award was given to her by management, she was then told to turn around in front of everyone so people could take pictures of her behind. According to the woman, other employees were also given awards, but for things like “Best Bartender” and “Best Server.” She says she has worked for Scotty’s Brewhouse for more than a year.
“I feel like I’m more than just a butt,” said the woman. “I feel like I’m smart, I’m going to school.”
The woman says she went to Scotty’s corporate HR and was told by upper-level management the award was not their idea. She says that so far, no one has offered her an apology. According to her, she is still working for the restaurant while also holding down a second job and attending classes.
“I have two jobs so I can make money and continue to go to school,” said the woman, “and then get my degree and not work two jobs anymore.”
FOX59 News has tried several times to contact Scotty’s Brewhouse corporate offices for comment, but so far has not received any kind of a response. The woman said she has consulted with an attorney and is considering filing a complaint with the EEOC.
