CA Yoga Teacher Fired for Glaring at Facebook Worker
A California yoga instructor has been fired for her disapproving stink-eye glare at a Facebook employee using a cell phone in class.
Alice Van Ness, who was hired to teach hour-long yoga sessions at Facebook's Menlo Park campus, says she tells students before class to turn off their cell phones.
But a female employee pulled out her cell phone in the middle of a Monday session and began texting.
The San Jose Mercury News says Van Ness didn't say anything, but she gave the student what she calls a look of disapproval.
The student later complained and Van Ness was fired by Plus One Health Management.
The termination letter says Van Ness "made a spectacle" of the student.
