Styleite: Michelle Fonville noticed that the bill for her manicure, pedicure, and eyebrow waxing at Natural Nails in DeKalb County wasn’t quite adding up, and said as much to the salon manager. As Fonville told WSB TV, “She broke it down. And then she told me she charged me $5 more because I was overweight.”
The charge for being overweight is because Natural Nail’s salon chairs are only meant to hold patrons weighing up to 200 pounds; Kim Tran, the salon manager, said she charged Ms. Fonville an additional $5 because of the weight restriction on the chairs. Chairs, Tran said, could cost her up to $2400 to repair. She also says that she believes that what she is doing is not discrimination.
Tran claims that “if she had been here when Fonville first arrived, she would have taken one look at her and told her that she could not be serviced here.”
You hear that big beautiful women of Georgia? Kim Tran does not want to service you. She doesn’t think you fit in with her establishment.
We’re sorry, Michelle Fonville, but next time you’re just going to have to take your fat ass elsewhere.
