Default 59 years old gravedigger loses job because of a shirtless picture in newspaper

I know this is basicly a small drop in the ocean of injustice, but damn news like these piss me off.

A man who has been digging graves past 40 years loses his job because of few fancy scumbags reading the sunday newspaper felt like their feelings were hurt by this picture of hardworking man digging a grave without shirt during hot summer day. And obviously the management decided not to use the services of this hard working man. To defend their employee or contractor would be naturally out of the question.

Now if there is any divine justice left…

Yep, this is very stupid.

By the look of him though, I couldn't imagine him doing anything other than digging graves…

This happened in UK? Not only I can't believe it happened at all, but can't believe it took place in UK. Honestly.

One more proof that in all cases the first one to sack when needed should always be stupid, ignorant and arrogant CEO.

Seemingly those people never knew gravediggers in the first place.
And then they were shocked.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
