Stunning car babe ‘FIRED for having her period’

Rachel Rickert

DISCRIMINATING: Rachel has filed an official complaint
Stunning blonde Rachel Rickert had been booked to model at the high-profile New York International Auto Show for Hyundai.

The 27-year-old was greeting guests at the booth in a black dress when she left for a toilet break.

But she didn’t manage to get there in time to change her tampon.

Rachel claims she told her talent rep, Erika Seifred about the situation, and was told to go home for the night.

Seifred then allegedly called Rachel in the morning to say she wasn’t going to be invited back because Hyundai had heard about the incident and didn’t want her representing the company.

Furious, Rachel has filed a discrimination complaint against the company and her talent rep.

ON SHOW: Hyundai used models to greet guests before showing them new cars

She said: “She called me and pretty much told me that Hyundai didn’t want me representing them anymore at the show because they got word of my menstrual cycle.

“You’re not a robot. You have to use the bathroom especially when you’re on your period.

“They just act like we’re not human. I’m not going to be ashamed or shamed of having my period.

“I’m not going to let someone tell me I can’t have my period when I work. It’s unacceptable.”

She also claims she has not been paid for the show and was expecting to earn $5,000.

A Hyundai spokesman said the company was not aware of the incident.

He added: “We take any complaint like this seriously and will respond appropriately once we have a chance to investigate the merits of the claim.”
