Lisle violin store in New York’s Little Italy has come under fire after one of its employees tweeted a picture of herself in a bikini.
The picture, shared on the store’s Facebook page, showed her wearing a sleeveless top, a red tank top and a white shirt with a bikini on top.
The store’s owner, Tanya Dolan, told the Daily News that she was upset by the post.
“I have been wearing my hair down all summer and it’s just not a nice thing to do,” she told the paper.
“The fact that I’m wearing it, and not thinking about it, is really embarrassing.”
Dolan later apologized and said that she had never had the idea that she would offend others with her choice of attire.
“My intent was not to offend anyone.
I am sorry,” she wrote.
“But the way I was wearing it made me feel uncomfortable and I did not mean to.”
