Worker accidentally copied into email chain rejecting him for job role

A teenager who discovered he’d been rejected from a job when he was accidentally cc’d into an email by the company’s HR manager has revealed he has since lost his primary job because of his viral TikTok, according to The Independent.

Alexander, 19, who lives in New York, recently posted a TikTok video in which he shared a screenshot of an email that he accidentally received from a coffee shop, in which the HR boss discussed plans to reject his application.
