Another day, another celebrity saying something that they’ve probably now realised they shouldn’t have. Singer Jess Glynne has come under fire on social media after she claimed she was being discriminated against by a restaurant for wearing a hoodie.

Over on Instagram, Jess shared a pic of her wearing a hoodie and a bum bag, and called out the restaurant in question who wouldn’t allow her inside due to what she was wearing at the time. Alongside the photo she shared with her many, many followers, Jess wrote, “Dear @sexyfishlondon I turned up to your restaurant looking like this and you looked me and my friend up and down and said no you can’t come in and your restaurant was EMPTY. I then went to @amazonicolondon who greeted me and my friend with pure joy and we had a banging meal with wicked service.”

She then continued, “@sexyfishlondon please check yourself if this is how you treat people cause it’s rude, off putting, embarrassing and most definitely not inviting. We were made to wait and 2 members of staff came to look at us and make a decision based on our appearance. I think the attitude of your staff needs to change as that was pure discrimination. Thanks and bye”.

Although fans were quick to point out that this is not exactly discrimination, and is more down to the restaurant’s dress code, who state so on their website. Reading, “We request that guests do not wear sportswear, beachwear, ripped jeans, flip flops, sliders or workout trainers (smarter, fashion trainers may be permitted).”

As usual, people have taken to Twitter to voice their opinions, with many questioning what Jess actually defines as discrimination. “Someone needs to tell Jess Glynne that being turned away from a restaurant cos you’re wearing a hoody is not discrimination,” one person wrote. While another said, “Jess Glynne got turned away from a restaurant for wearing a hoodie and she called it ‘discrimination’ what the f***.”
