Baliwag recently became the target of online censure after it released its employment requirements in its branches.
Netizens took issue with the requirement of not having tattoos claiming this is discriminatory.
They said that having body ink does not affect one’s performance on the job and urged tattooed individuals to boycott the brand.
After receiving criticisms online, the franchise clarified that it had no intention to discriminate against individuals who have tattoos.
“We do not discriminate against anyone regardless of their personal preferences, particularly, in this instance, with regard to having tattoos,” Baliwag said in a statement.
