Popular toy store Hamleys has apologised to actor-producer Datuk Rosyam Nor and his daughter over an incident where she was alledgedly asked to take off her tudung (headscarf) if she wanted to work in the outlet.
When Rosyam tweeted about the no-tudung policy told to his daughter, the store issued a statement uploaded on its Facebook page that it did not have such a policy and welcomed any applicant, regardless of race and religion, reported Sinar Harian.
Hamleys' apology and denial came after Rosyam tweeted that he was sad that his daughter, who was looking for a part-time job after her SPM, had approached the store in Bandar Utama. She was allegedly asked to take off her scarf if she wanted to work there.
His tweet went viral, causing anger among Muslims.
Hamleys said it was found that a newly-employed worker who has no authority to hire or even interview prospective employee had provided incorrect information to Rosyam's daughter.
Rosyam accepted Hamleys' apology.
