New Orleans Saints cheerleader says she was fired for posting a swimsuit pic to Instagram

Lifestyle News

A former cheerleader for the New Orleans Saints’ Saintsations squad has filed a gender discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, alleging that female dancers were held to a higher standard than the male football players they rooted for, the New York Times reports.

Though the Saintsations website still lists Bailey Davis as a member, the 22-year-old dancer says she was fired after three seasons with the squad for posting a photo of herself in a one-piece outfit to Instagram. Davis claims that the post did not violate her code of conduct, as her Instagram was set to private in accordance with team regulations and she was not nude, seminude, or wearing lingerie.
