Fox News has seized on our story yesterday about Kimberlee Ouwroulis, the 44-year-old exotic dancer who has filed a rights complaint against a Mississauga strip club that allegedly fired her because of her age.

Here’s how Ouwroulis describes what happened: ‘‘The manager called me into the office June 6, sat me down, looked at me directly and I quote, “Your time is up here,” and I asked, “Why? Is it my age?” He furthermore volunteered that another older girl had been fired the same day, and told me her name.’’

Ouwroulis took the case to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario.

Fox took the subject up in a discussion of their legal panel (available at the moment on their home page), although panelists seemed dubious that a) Ouwroulis is 44 and b) what happened to her amounted to discrimination. Read their version of the story here.

We have asked Ouwroulis for further comment, and are awaiting her reply. In the meantime, we offer a blurry but never-seen-before photo of Ouwroulis, above.
