Caroline Flack, the hairdressing salon owner who was fired from her job at a Trump hotel after being filmed in an embarrassing, sexist way joking about having her own hair cut and wearing her own clothes, has released a statement saying she was fired for her “humorous” behavior.
Flack said she was told by a hotel manager that she was being fired after a customer saw her doing something that she shouldn’t be doing in a Trump property.
“The hotel management, who had been in touch with me in advance, was concerned about my personal safety and I was told I was being terminated,” Flack told Al Jazeera.
Flak, an avid Trump supporter, has since posted a message on Facebook to apologize for the incident.
“I would like to sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended by my inappropriate comments,” she said in the post.
“That behavior was completely unacceptable, and I am truly sorry for it.
I would never condone that.”
The employee who allegedly recorded Flack in a sexist manner is identified by her Twitter handle @kimflack, and is identified as a “customer service representative”.
“While we cannot speak to the specific nature of the situation, I can tell you that this was a very clear violation of our policies and that I have been terminated,” she told Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN).
Flack’s boss, James K. Flacks, said Flack was fired after the customer confronted her with the incident at the Trump Hotel in Washington, DC.
“This is a business that is owned and operated by Trump and his family,” he told Al-Jazeera.
“You cannot have an atmosphere where a staff member or anyone in the Trump family would engage in inappropriate behavior.
That is completely unacceptable.”
The owner of Flack House, which also sells hair and makeup, said in a statement to Al Jazeera that she had been fired from the company “for a variety of reasons”.
Flack is a member of the New York City hairdresses and beauty salon scene.
She is also a celebrity hairstylist, having appeared in The Hollywood Reporter’s “30 Under 30” issue in 2014 and 2016.
She has been involved in numerous Trump rallies since the 2016 US election.
Flack also launched a Twitter account last year, which has since been deleted, and has since deleted all of her tweets.
Al Jazeera contacted Flack for comment, but did not receive a response.
Flick has previously appeared on MSNBC, CNN and MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”, and has hosted the “Inside Amy Schumer” podcast on the comedy website Vice.
“A lot of women are just like me.
They are just tired of the sexist bullshit that goes on in the world today,” she tweeted last year.
“If a man in the White House were to say to me: ‘I’m so sorry for how you look at the world, I just want you to know that I love you,’ I’d say, ‘Really?
