Former NFL cheerleader claims she was sacked over Instagram picture, report says

She was sacked for posting a photo of herself in a one-piece bathing suit on her private Instagram.

Though the Saintsations website still lists Bailey Davis as a member, the 22-year-old dancer says she was sacked after three seasons with the squad for posting a photo of herself in a one-piece outfit to Instagram.

Davis" attorney, Sara Blackwell, shared documentation and emails showing such policies - including specific rules that cheerleaders can be terminated if they exchange numbers with anyone from the Saints or NBA's New Orleans Pelicans or any other National Football League or NBA team; message them on social media; appear in the same VIP section in a club or the same dinner table; or "even had a conversation with one of them that lingered beyond a professional "hello" or "great game'". Davis worked for the organization for three seasons before being fired for breaking team rules about fraternization and social media usage - rules which, according to Bailey, place an unfair onus on the organization's female employees.

The rules are so strict that the Cheerleaders can not give utter a word except greetings.

Cheerleaders have to go as far as leave a restaurant if a player is already there or arrives after her.

"If the cheerleaders can't contact the players, then the players shouldn't be able to contact the cheerleaders", Blackwell said.

Davis, 22, filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, stating that the team's regulations reflect outdated views of women. Cheerleaders also must refrain from using their last names on social media to make it harder for players to find and pursue them. On the latter charge, Davis denies that she violated any team regulation.

Before her termination, rumors swirled Davis attended a party with a group of players. The team also accused her of receiving messages from players on Instagram, according to the complaint. "The organization looks forward to clearing itself of any wrongdoing with regards to its policies and workplace rules". Obviously if there's a player who's trying to hurt a cheerleader, we want to protect the cheerleader.

Davis' claims were first reported by The New York Times. They're judged on how much fat hangs off their legs, forced into demeaning gigs, punished if their breasts "slouch", strictly monitored on how they carry on conversation, told how to wash themselves and lectured on etiquette, all while often receiving minuscule wages that don't always comply with labor law.

Bailey Davis is a former cheerleader for the New Orleans Saints who is now suing the organization for workplace discrimination. There's also a grip of other teams, including the Oakland Raiders, Cincinnati Bengals, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Jets, who've been caught at the wrong end of a lawsuit with its cheerleaders for poor pay and refusal to cover essential expenses, like makeup and uniforms. As the New York Times noted, the Buffalo Bills are in hot water for telling its cheerleaders to do jumping jacks during tryouts to see how toned their bodies were. However, Davis can't sue the Saints because she signed an arbitration agreement, giving up that right.
