Woman Turned Down for Massage Because She’s Too Fat — Is It Fair? [POLL]
You can’t super size your soda in New York City anymore. You’ll need to purchase a second seat on the airplane if your over- sized, and now, no massage for the robust client. Is it fair?
31-year-old Laura Smith didn’t get her massage and she actually felt she was discriminated against. She claims that the National Healing Center, in Aurora, Colorado, refused to give her a massage last month because she is too big. Can you believe what owner of the spa, Penny Wells, allegedly told Smith,
“I’m really sorry, but you’re just too fat for our table. You’ll probably break [it] and have to pay for it.’”
I’m shocked because I stand 5′ 10″ 220 lbs and Laura Smith is six-foot-three and weighs 250 pounds, not much bigger than me. I’ve never experienced anything like this when going for a massage. How about you?
