Following her firing by Bravo back in September, after which reports came out stating she was experiencing financial diffulty and forced to close some of her Completely Bare salons, Cindy can finally breathe a sigh of relief today as a discrimination lawsuit against her has been dismissed.
Earlier this year, Cindy’s former employee, Altovise Collier, filed a discrimination complaint against her with the New York’s Division of Human Rights, alleging that Cindy fired her because she’s black.
In the suit, Altovise alleged she didn’t receive enough employee training due to her race, which resulted in negative customer feedback. She also claimed that staffers joked she was hired to “inject some color” into the salon and when she complained to Cindy, she was let go.
However, the NY Post reports the case was dropped this month due to a lack of evidence that Altovise was fired because of her race.
Cindy responded via a statement: “I’m so happy that the truth has come out. I’ve never looked at people based on race, religion, creed, or color. I see people for who they are.”
