The fat-shaming is not going down well

A pedicure can be a relaxing and fun experience that leaves your feet feeling soft and supple. If you’ve never had one (and can afford it), I would recommend trying it out at least one time. But if you’re a little larger than the average person, don’t go to Rose Nails in Tennessee for the procedure. You’ll get charged almost ten dollars more just because you’re overweight. The salon in question says that there’s nothing wrong with their fat-shaming policy, but the store’s customers have a different view.

Should a salon be allowed to discriminate against fatter customers?
