Thai nurse allegedly forced to resign because her uniform was too sexy

A nurse in Thailand was allegedly forced to resign after her private photos were shared on a group page online, sparking outrage that her uniform was "overly sexy".

Parichat 'Pang' Chatsri, 26, became anĀ overnight sensation after photos of her in a tight-fitting uniform with a short skirt at a private hospital in Isan, Thailand, went viral.

Many netizens who came across the pictures in the Thai Nurse Lovers Association group page said the outfit was "overly sexy" and that she brought "shame to her profession".

The Coverage reports that Chatsri has since issued a public apology, saying:

"I explained to the board at the hospital but they have high regards for the hospital's image.

"I understood them and I didn't want it to be a big deal. So I took responsibility by resigning.

"I'd like to apologise to the Thailand Nursing and Midwifery Council and the hospital.

"I don't want the public to judge all nurses based on my image. I do not want trouble.

"It happened and I was responsible. I need to improve myself."
