Hooters girls’ cheeks are blushing in fury over their skimpy new uniform shorts.
“Oh look, a wedgie!” exclaimed Hooters waitress Kristen Songer, 22, in a trending TikTok of herself modeling the chicken eatery’s new skintight, bikini-cut black bottoms.
“Starting Oct. 4, all Hooters girls should wear the new shorts when working once they arrive to stores,” reads a recent Hooters policy notice obtained exclusively by The Post. “The old shorts should not be worn.”
In the uniform policy update, Hooters also warned that waitresses and bartenders who feel “uncomfortable” about the tiny new trunks mandate are welcome to put in their letters of resignation.
“There’s no longer anything covered by these shorts,” Songer, a University of South Carolina School of Medicine student, said in a video. She wore a pair of gray leggings under the shorts in order to avoid flashing too much skin to her nearly 140,000 TikTok followers. “This is why all the Hooters girls are upset — because this is not what I agreed to wear a year ago when I was hired.”
Songer, who’s gained digital popularity via the TikTok handle @TheFlatHootersGirl, realized viral success in June when she amassed over 19.6 million views for a how-to video on creating the illusion of cleavage in her Hooters uniform by using an Amazon push-up bra and contouring cosmetics on her A-cup chest.
But now, as the almost four-decades-old comfort food chain — renowned for employing busty women to wear low-cut tops while serving customers deep-fried tidbits — shifts to a more derrière-centric dress code, Songer and her co-workers across the nation are blasting the restaurant for rolling out the extremely risqué rump wear.
“This s–t is rated porn,” teased Alabama waitresses Easten Brewer and Katherine Nicole in a TikTok close-captioned “When Hooters gets even shorter shorts.” And Giselle Nguyen, a 20-year-old staffer in Texas, stared into her video camera in disbelief while holding up her pair of the barely there bottoms. “I know it ain’t my new uniform shorts,” she complained in her video. “What’s that supposed to fit?!?”
But the female workers’ outcry against Hooters’ new hot pants is falling on deaf ears after the memo was released.
The company issued each employee new three pairs of the bitty briefs — waitresses were given two sets of shorts in orange and one in black and bartenders were given two pairs in black and one in orange.
The old shorts, although crotch-length, offered Hooters girls a few more inches of coverage around their backsides. The new editions cover most girls’ upper buttocks and only offer what some discontented employees have referred to as a “crotch string,” which resembles a thong-cut panty.
In the uniform policy update, Hooters noted that employees can leave if they don’t like it.
“[We] hope this change would create excitement with all of our current Hooters Girls. We understand that this may be a change that may not suit your personal preference,” the memo reads.
“We would ask that you try them out and, if after two weeks, you are still hesitant to wear the new shorts you may transfer to a non-image based position or resign your position as a Hooters Girl,” the company continued. “If you choose to resign you will be eligible for rehire.”
Hooters did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.
Despite the mass outrage over the scanty smalls, a handful of the poultry bar’s beauties are fond of their uniform’s new look.
“I actually like the new shorts,” posted a Kentucky Hooters staffer named Amanda. “[They’re] really not that bad,” said waitress Lexius in a separate video.
