A lady was reportedly denied a well-paying job because she wore a leg chain to the interview.
According to a Twitter user, Josephine, who claimed the incident happened to her friend, the friend didn’t get the job solely because she rocked an anklet to the interview.
“So my friend was denied a well paying Job today because she had a leg chain on ,what has a leg chain got to do with acquiring a job”, she tweeted.
Josephine’s tweet, however, stirred diverse reactions from Nigerians on the micro-blogging platform. While some opined that there was nothing wrong with rocking a leg chain to the interview, others averred that it’s inappropriate for the occasion.

@benzero2hot, “Was she wearing the leg chain when she came out of her mother’s womb? Did she die when she was young and not wearing it? Be there supporting what you don’t know. Leg chain is a symbol. I don’t know the symbol but I know it symbolizes something.”
