An act of self-defence has been delivered by a nurse, who clapped back at critics who branded her scrubs’ inappropriate’ because of the way they fit her body, insisting that the actual problem lies with her curves and not her scrubs.
A video featuring Erika Diaz, 22, with a blue top tucked into matching pants, went viral on TikTok after she shared a video of herself modelling her hospital uniform, a blue top tucked into matching pants, claiming she was asked why she wore her scrubs that way.
Some People Have A Problem With My Body, She Said
A screenshot of the scrubs is then shown in the clip, indicating that they were designed to be tucked in and look as if they were used in online advertising. There is only one difference between the two, and that is the physical proportions of Erika.
She wrote in the caption that some people just don’t care as much about my scrubs as they do about my body, and it shows in their comments.
There have been over 12.7 million views of the video, and Erika has continued to defend herself in the video’s comments section. ‘Just for clarification, I am 5’2″ and 107 lbs. I’m short and little,’ she said, explaining. ‘Y’all can say my body is fake all y’all want, it’s not. Ask my back problems.’
‘I literally work 2 jobs, volunteer, and I am still studying,’ her statement added. ‘I’m devoting my life to the improvement of others, and anyone’s opinions are irrelevant.’
Viewers Are Debating Erika’s Uniform
Viewers have been divided over Erika’s uniform, with some feeling that her scrubs were too tight, which prompted a debate among them. ‘It’s just not professional,’ as one individual wrote. In the meantime, another person commented, ‘You simply can buy a bigger size to give you space for breath.’
‘I’m an old school director. I’d never allow that on my floor, I don’t want to see nails [perfume] or style, keep that at home where it belongs,’ a person else also suggested. ‘I’m literally not wearing makeup, have my nails done, or my hair for that fact,’ was the reply that Erika gave back. ‘It’s literally just scrubs tucked in, so I don’t get stuck.’
Others, on the other hand, stood confident that there was nothing ‘inappropriate’ about her scrubs and urged critics not to tell her to buy a larger size, saying she didn’t need their advice. ‘Anyone saying “buy a bigger size” it doesn’t [really] work like that,’ one TikTok user noted. ‘Sometimes a bigger size will be too big on the arms or too long.’
“She can’t help it that she’s snatched, let a fine woman live,” said one of the users. “Can’t change what you have, doesn’t make it inappropriate,” was added in by another. “Y’all wouldn’t have a problem with it if she had A cups,” agreed one of the viewers.
“I ain’t remember the last time I cared what a NURSE looks like when they’re helping me … regardless of if you’re a patient or an employee,” responded someone else.
She Shows Off Her Hourglass Figure On Tiktok
It would seem that Erika isn’t afraid to show off her hourglass figure on TikTok, where she shares videos of herself modelling bikinis and workout gear along with her hourglass figure. In a month’s time, she has shared a new clip of herself striking a pose in her infamous scrubs, one month after she went viral.
‘How I feel walking into work after some of my coworkers found my TikTok account LOL,’ a comment that appeared on the screen below the image. ‘They don’t care, though,’ she added in the caption. ‘I will be telling them my whole life story, too, haha.’
I believe that no matter the situation, we should not make anyone feel wrong about how their body looks. Despite that, the points she hit back had some logic to them. What are your thoughts on the statements she has made against the critics? You can share your thoughts by leaving a comment below.
