Former Belgian cyclist Tara Gins says topless photo shoots for Playboy and a Belgian calendar cost her a job with a men's cycling team.  She had a verbal agreement in place to work for an unnamed men's cycling team as a sports director.

That ended when the team discovered that she had done the topless photo shoots.  Gins talked about the situation with Cycling News.

From Cycling News:

“I had a verbal agreement to start working for a team as a sports director this year. A men’s team, where I would work with the young athletes and the elites,” Gins wrote on her Instagram page.

“That was something that I was really looking forward to because that is the direction that I want to go in. But apparently, someone has made a problem with a photo of me. I don’t mind now that the job has been canceled. It’s probably for the best. I don’t want to work with people who don’t see my capabilities and just walk with the herd.”

It's their loss.  Just think of all the publicity hiring Tara could have gotten their shitty cycling team.  Since when is taking off your top a reason to disqualify someone from a job?  2021 already doesn't make any sense.
