We all know Hooters still runs in more than 430 locations thanks to its infamous Hooter Girls – those extremely attractive voluptuous waitresses that wear extremely skimpy outfits. After all, those hamburgers and chicken wings are much tastier when they’re served by the Hooter Girls.
Ever since 1997 the restaurant chain has had quite the trouble with the law, some of which was exactly thanks to its provocative staff members. Several men filed lawsuits because the company refused to hire them as waiters. They were all paid lucrative sums in the court settlements. However, Hooters decided not to go for a settlement when the government made a complaint about the waitress policy. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission declared that the chain was discriminating against men because it was hiring only large-chested young women as waitresses. As a response to the complaint, Hooters decided to run a hilarious commercial in which a hairy male waiter was dressed in the skimpy signature uniform of the company.
The government decided to drop the complaint afterwards.
