“First of all, if we want to continue working together, I want to work with a female salesperson.
Former Miss Massachusetts 2016 Whitney Sharpe is going viral after she posted her response to “locker room chat” chats that were accidentally shared with her during a business meeting.
Sharpe, whose TikTok bio says she’s a “former Miss Massachusetts USA turned sales girl,” was in a Zoom business meeting when the group’s Microsoft Teams chat was accidentally shared with her. After seeing unfavorable comments about herself, she recorded herself calling them on the spot. The TikTok post of the video has been viewed more than 12 million times on Sunday.
“If a supplier accidentally shares their Teams group chat and everything is annoying me. In 2023 it can stop,” the text accompanying the video reads.
“First of all, if we keep working together, I want to work with a commercial woman because I don’t want dressing rooms talking about me when we share screens,” she said in the video. .
Sharpe was interviewed on NBC10 Boston where she said she regretted simply calling cats “locker room talk.”
“I think talking in the locker room is a nice bow to something that isn’t pretty. I should have called him for what it was. I should have said, ‘I can’t stand sexual harassment,'” she said.
Sharpe received supportive comments from Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran, famed TikToker Corporate Natalie, and thousands of others.
She also posted a follow-up video to the email she received from the company, saying, “This email could have been written much better.”
