A Clash of Values: Company Image vs. Personal Expression

So, we have a boss who's concerned about his company's image and an employee who loves to express herself through provocative Instagram photos. After a warning and a brief pause, Olivia went back to posting her steamy pics, leading the boss to fire her amidst the stress of a pandemic. Now, she's threatening to sue for discrimination, and the rest of the employees are considering leaving in solidarity. Who's in the right here? Is the boss justified in protecting his company's image, or is he being unfair to Olivia? Let's see what the internet has to say about this spicy situation... 🔥🍿
