Malori Wampler: Fired Indianapolis Colts Cheerleader Says She Was Wronged
Malori Wampler Cries Foul and Wants to Be Rehired
Trouble is brewing for the Indianapolis Colts after former cheerleader Malori Wampler has filed a lawsuit against the team, claiming that she was discriminated against when she was let go in the middle of the season.
Malori Wampler, 27, Indianapolis, was fired last November when a fan sent in pictures that showed her posing in what resembled a painted-on bikini. Her private parts were covered.
Her attorney claims she didn’t violate any of the Colts’ rules of conduct for cheerleaders, which forbid them from committing “any act that will or may create notoriety,” because the photos were taken before the Colts hired her.
Wampler, who is Indonesian, says the Colts discriminated against her based on her gender and ethnicity because other cheerleaders — as well as Colts players, who must follow similar rules of conduct — have committed acts that created “notoriety” but were allowed to keep their jobs.
Even though the Colts contend that her claims have "no merit" it's looking like there could be some truth to her allegations.
Wampler did pose for "Playboy" but it was before her time with the Colts and she didn't exactly pose nude, she was wearing body paint during her pictorials.
It will be interesting how this case turns out. If a judge does rule in Wampler's favor, it could potentially cost the Colts a pretty penny in damages.
Definitely much more than the $100 per game, they were paying her while she was a cheerleader.
