BANGKOK – A Thai nurse in North Eastern Thailand has resiged from her job after photos of her went viral on Facebook earlier this month, drawing negative comments from netizens. for reportedly wearing an “overly sexy uniform” at work.

Netizens have accused Parichat “Pang” Chatsri, 26, of disrespecting the nursing profession by dressing in clothes they deemed as “inappropriate.”
In response to the backlash, the nurse issued a public apology. “I explained to the board at the hospital but they have high regards for the hospital’s image,” she was quoted as saying. “I understood them, and I didn’t want it to be a big deal. So I took responsibility by resigning.”
Chatsri further explained that she resigned because it was her responsibility to ensure that the reputation of both the hospital and the profession was not tarnished by her actions.
“I do not want trouble. It happened and I was responsible. I need to improve myself,” she said
