Is this an example of going too far in an interview? 🤔

Should she have reported her interviewer for inappropriate questions? 🤔

At a job interview, the interviewer, Eddie, asked a series of inappropriate questions that were unrelated to the job. When asked to reveal her biggest weakness, the interviewee responded that it was “keeping up with his inappropriate questions and answering them politely!” Eddie took offense to the response and abruptly ended the interview. The interviewe felt wronged and decided to report Eddie to his supervisor, which eventually led to him getting fired. Eddie reached out to her via email, saying what she did could have been resolved between them. Is the interviewee wrong for having Eddie fired? 🤔 This is the question posed in the Reddit post and what the comments and reactions section of the article will explore.
