Tess Holliday Fired Someone Who Said It Was ‘Impossible’ for Her to Do High Fashion Modeling

Tess Holliday won’t let other people stop her from realizing her dreams.

When someone on her team told the 33-year-old model that it was “impossible” for her to work in high fashion, Holliday fired her — and then did the impossible.

“Someone on my team, at the beginning of this year, emailed me and asked me what my goals were for 2018, and I said I wanted to do high fashion. They responded with saying that it was impossible, and that if the designers aren’t making clothing in my size, then there’s no point in asking the designers,” Holliday said in a video for Cosmopolitan.

“When people tell me that I can’t do something, it makes me want to do it, and I’m incredibly stubborn. So, I fired them.”

And Holliday used her stubbornness to make her high-fashion dreams a reality.

“Since I’ve fired them, I’ve done two high fashion shoots. I’ve shot two major covers, I am continuing to do even cooler stuff in the high fashion world, and basically prove them Please view this post in your web browser to complete the quiz. in like, four months,” she said. “When I prove people wrong that said I could never do high fashion or my critics that don’t believe in me, it feels really damn good.”

The mom of two added that she’s very used to people telling her all the things she can’t do.

“There were a lot of people in my life who thought that I was crazy for going after my dreams,” she said. “I was told that I would never model in the first place. I couldn’t get an agent, no one was interested in representing me, no one was interested in hiring me.”

RELATED VIDEO: Tess Holliday: ‘I Actually Enjoy Working Out’ — But I Don’t ‘Have to Prove Anything to Anybody’

But Holliday pushed through, and knows she’s making a difference.

“I know that I have selling power, I know that people like seeing bigger bodies and marginalized bodies, because I represent women that you don’t see a lot in media and in print,” she said.

“A lot of people just expect that my life is perfect and everything works out, and the reality is it’s taken so many years, and so much hard work, and so many sacrifices, and I still have to sacrifice so much, and it’s still so much work to even be here, and people still don’t see all the behind-the-scenes,” she added. “If you want to chase your dreams you have to keep going.”

Florida Officer Fired After Pulling Service Weapon to Reenact Scene From Training Day

A Florida sheriff’s deputy has been fired after he allegedly waved his police-issued gun and taser while reenacting a scene from the Denzel Washington movie Training Day, PEOPLE confirms.

According to a Lake County Sheriff’s Office internal affairs report from obtained by PEOPLE, David Zipes allegedly pulled out his service weapon and taser in the parking lot of a Lake County Sheriff substation on February 16. He then recited profanity-laced lines from the film.

In the 2001 crime thriller, Washington plays a crooked narcotics detective. In one scene, the character rubs two guns together and crosses them over each other as he confronts a suspect. The internal affairs report alleges Zipes admitted he was reenacting the scene.

Zipes allegedly told investigators that he was just trying to “be funny and fit in.”

At least two co-workers and a deputy trainee witnessed the incident. Zipes was fired on April 21; he had only been with the agency for about 16 months.

According to the report, this is not the first time Zipes has allegedly jokingly pulled out his firearm while on duty. The report states he had also pretended to grab his gun while talking to a pizza delivery driver and joked that he was Markeith Loyd, a Florida man who is accused of killing a police officer.

Zipes told investigators that he had no malicious intent behind the February 16 incident. “He stated that he was trying to lighten the mood,” the report states. Investigators say that he also said he wanted to be the “center of attention.”

The internal affairs report only addressed the status of Zipes’ employment. He has not been charged with any crime.

A phone number for Zipes has been disconnected, and he did not respond to PEOPLE’s email request for comment.

Why ‘Shots Fired’ Made An Unarmed White Student The Victim Of A Police Shooting

Filmmakers Gina Prince-Bythewood and Reggie Rock Bythewood are aiming to uncover the complexities of America’s criminal justice system with their new Fox drama series “Shots Fired.”

Starring Sanaa Lathan, Tristan “Mack” Wilds, Stephan James, Helen Hunt and Aisha Hinds, the 10-episode series chronicles the aftermath of two racially charged shootings in a small North Carolina town following African American police officer Joshua Beck (played by Wilds) killing an unarmed white college student.

The decision by the husband-wife team to reverse the narrative of police brutality came during the early stages of the show’s development, according to Prince-Bythewood.

The “Love & Basketball” director tells The Huffington Post that the story was inspired by George Zimmerman’s much-publicized 2013 trial in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, in which the former neighborhood watch coordinator received over $ 200,000 from supporters to help fund his legal defense. 

“What struck us after the Zimmerman trial was how they kept reporting on how much money was being donated to George Zimmerman,” she said. “And it was a shock that so much of the population was empathizing with him and not the 17-year-old boy who was killed for absolutely no reason. And it shocked us, but not everyone was seeing that. And the fact that when these shootings happen, it seems like the first thing that happens is that people start to demonize the victim and make excuses for what happened.”

“So we felt if we flipped it, it would give people who normally don’t deal with this an opportunity to feel what it’s like to be in our shoes, so to speak,” she continued. “And hopefully empathize and understand so that when it happens you’re not desensitized anymore.”

The show’s recurring themes of race and social justice also delve into the related economic effects of federal private prisons and America’s school-to-prison pipeline.

Through the years, privately owned prison facilities have faced scrutiny over safety and security, especially in comparison to federally run prisons.

Various reports have concluded that students of color face harsher disciplinary action and are more likely to be pushed out of school than their white counterparts ― all of which contributes to America’s increasing mass incarceration rates and the disproportionate number of black and Latino prisoners.

“We don’t think people understand and know about the pipeline and what private prisons do and how they make money and how corrupt it is and how it absolutely affects policing,” Prince-Bythewood said. “That was one of the things that we wanted to do with the show is be able to open it up and show this issue from every seat in the house, not just the victims and the families and the police, but how it rises up into the politics and how laws are made and why they’re made to benefit people in power.”

“All of this affects the people on the ground. The private prison complex is a horrifying thing,” she added. “And also what happens in our schools and the equity in schools can absolutely affect a child’s chance of living life.”

In addition to her hope for the show’s characters to spark more activism in America, the 47-year-old filmmaker also wants politicians and law enforcement officials to take note of the show’s underlying messages to help create a more unified America.

“We hope that we give a blueprint,” she said. “Our show isn’t just ten hours of venting, but hopefully at the end of the ten hours we’re offering some thoughts on how things can change.”

“Shots Fired” airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Fox.

Florida Man Fired After Facebook Post Saying He Wants To Marry His Dog

Ryan Uhler thought he was being funny when he took to Facebook to compare marrying his dog to same-sex marriage, but he quickly found himself in the doghouse at work.

Uhler, 32, a resident of Cape Coral, Florida, posted the following message the day after the Supreme Court’s June 26 ruling that gay marriage is legal everywhere, according to TheBlaze.com.

”How is marrying a dog different if you love them? Today I hope we can focus on doggy-style love. I love my dog Rocco, and he loves me. Hopefully one day we can be married.”

On Tuesday, his employer, Grace Investment Group, fired him from his position as a digital marketing specialist.

“I was blindsided,” he told The Huffington Post. “I didn’t think anyone there knew how to use Facebook.”

Uhler told The Huffington Post he didn’t mean anything derogatory by the post, and has no problem with the Supreme Court’s decision.

However, he also admits being aware that likening same-sex marriage to an animal wedding is a cliche often used by critics of LGBT rights.

“I’m very neutral about politics. Sometimes, I will try and get a reaction to spark comments and responses.” Uhler told The Huffington Post. “I really didn’t want to offend. I have gay people I know and love and I wouldn’t want to offend them, but they know my sense of humor.”

He said he simply likes to go on Facebook and “stir the pot” sometimes in “either direction,” he said, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Uhler said company officials told him the Facebook post was the reason he was being fired and claimed they told him they were uncomfortable with the connotations of bestiality.

“It wasn’t about that at all,” he said. “It’s about loving a dog. People have told me, ‘I have a dog and I’d make that joke too.'”

Grace Investment Group hasn’t confirmed whether the post was why Uhler was canned, but it doesn’t have to: Florida is an “at will” state, which means employers can fire workers for any reason and without notice, according to WTSP.com.

Uhler, a married man, may be out of work, but he joked to NBC-2 that he would indeed marry Rocco if he were allowed.

However, he’s not laughing about being unemployed.

“The reason I’m coming forward about this is that I don’t want anyone to make the same mistake I did about posting jokes like this on Facebook,” he told HuffPost.

Brooks Wheelan Says He’s ‘Fired’ From ‘SNL’

Brooks Wheelan, one of six featured players hired by “Saturday Night Live” before the start of the show’s 39th season, will not return for Season 40. Wheelan tweeted the news on Monday:

When contacted by HuffPost Entertainment to confirm Wheelan’s ouster, an NBC representative said that neither the network nor show comment on casting changes. That “SNL” would see some turnover before its 40th season is no surprise: Back in June, executive producer Lorne Michaels told Deadline.com that cast adjustments were forthcoming.

“We’re still in the middle of rebuilding,” Michaels said. “So there will be changes this year.”

Wheelan was a stand-up comic before being hired by “SNL.” The 27-year-old was initially brought onto the show as a writer, but he became the sixth and final addition to the cast before the 39th season began. (Colin Jost and Sasheer Zamata were added as featured players during this past season.)

“Each step of the way I thought it was pretty neat that I had gotten this far, so I didn’t put too much pressure on myself in that way,” Wheelan told the Bellevue Reporter about auditioning for “SNL” in an interview published earlier this year. “As far as the audition itself, they saw me perform in Montreal, then in L.A., and then I auditioned on the stage where they shoot the show in New York. It was all scary, but I tried to [minimize that].”

During his stint as a “Saturday Night Live” featured player, Wheelan made a couple of appearances on Weekend Update. He recalled those moment and some of his other favorite memories in a video published by NBC at the close of the season.

As ScreenCrush.com senior editor Mike Ryan pointed out, however, Wheelan’s last appearance on “SNL” might have foreshadowed his exit.

Watch that sketch, without Wheelan included, below.

Park Ranger Deryl Nelson Claims He Was Fired For Dancing On The Job

A park ranger’s love of public dancing may have sent him waltzing into the unemployment line.

Deryl Nelson, 51, worked at Coolidge Park in Chattanooga, Tennessee, for seven years. About a year into into the job, he drew cheers for joining a group of visitors doing the Macarena.

After that, there was no stopping him and he would boogie oogie oogie at impromptu moments.

“It’s all about enjoying what you do and that’s the way I feel,” Nelson said told WRCB TV. “[It’s] clean fun. It’s nothing like doing any bumping and grinding.”

Some say otherwise.

Work was a kick for Nelson until recently when he was booted off the job after a woman named Melissa Parsons filmed one of his dance sessions and posted it online.

The raw video of Nelson’s dance shows him at one point laying on the ground with his legs folded under his body while he seems to pump his pelvis towards the sky.

“As a parent and seeing all the parents that were covering their kids eyes and turning their heads away, it wasn’t something you would expect to see in Coolidge Park or anywhere from a grown man, especially a man in uniform,” Parsons told NewsChannel9.com. “He went all the way to the ground, he came back up from the ground, he was grabbing areas that you would see on a rated R movie.”

WATCH: Deryl Nelson The Dancing Park Ranger

When Nelson’s supervisors saw the video, they terminated him for what the city calls, “conduct unbecoming a public employee.”

Chattanooga city officials say they do not comment on personnel matters, but this isn’t Nelson’s first dance with danger.

According to city records, Nelson was suspended for crashing a car while on duty. In 2013, he was suspended for five days for “addressing inappropriate remarks to a co-worker,” according to UPI.com.

Last year, he also won an award from the police department for helping save a woman’s life at the park, MercuryNews.com reported.

News about Nelson’s termination has moved some people to their feet.

A Facebook group called Bring Back Deryl Nelson: The Dancing Park Ranger has attracted about 486 supporters, about the same number that has signed a Change.org petition addressed to the City of Chattanooga.

Nelson refuses to take the termination lying down — literally — and wants his job back.

“This is my song and nothing going to bring me down,” he said, according to TimesFreePress.com. “I love life and I love dancing!”

Mariska Hargitay’s Haircut Almost Got Her Fired From ‘Law & Order: SVU’

Mariska Hargitay has had many different haircuts over the years of “Law & Order: SVU,” but one in particular almost got her fired. The Emmy-winning star told WENN that Dick Wolf was not pleased with her accidental short crop.

The event happened during Season 3 of “Law & Order: SVU.” “You know that moment,” Hargitay said in September, according to MSN. “I look up and [my breath caught]. My hair was so cute and then all of a sudden, he did the one irrevocable cut. I went, ‘Oh! Oh!’ and he said, ‘What? Honey, you’re gorgeous.’ He kept going. He cuts it and then he leaves. I’m calling the producer at 10:30, [crying], ‘I just got a haircut. I don’t think it looks good!’ I went over to the producer’s house and he was like, ‘Yeah, that’s a problem.’ When they saw dailies [at work], they weren’t happy.”

Hargitay told WENN she was in the middle of shooting an episode when she requested the haircut for a photoshoot and the stylist cut the wrong piece.

“I give the guy a glass of wine, he’s trimming my hair, everything’s great … and then all of a sudden I turn my head and he cuts the wrong piece off and I was like, ‘No…!’ I’m like, ‘Dude, I’m in the middle of an episode,'” she recently told WENN. “I got in so much trouble.”

Hargitay said she called series creator Wolf he said, “‘I’ve fired people for less.'”

“I said, ‘You can’t be mad at me; I’m the one with the dramatic hairdo,'” she said.

Harigtay recently chopped off her locks as part of her character’s transformation following the brutal events of the Season 15 events. The actress’ hair has not only almost gotten her fired, but has also inspired blogs.

“Law & Order: SVU” airs Wednesdays, 9 p.m. EST on NBC.
