Of course blame 'discrimination' for your own personal faults.

It is perfectly legal to refuse service and such things due to weight as weight is not a protected class.

On Thursday, a woman was told she was "too big" to receive a pedicure from a nail salon based in Houston, Texas. The woman believes she was discriminated against by the employee, who admitted to denying her service.

Tina Lewis, who had visited the Rose Nails salon a week prior to the incident to get her eyelashes done, had returned to receive a pedicure. Instead, she was told by an employee, Marie Bui, that the salon chairs were not big enough for her to sit in. Lewis, who gets her nails done every two weeks, has never had an experience like this before, she told KTRK.

She’s pretty large and the chairs can only handle so much weight.

The furniture and appliance stores should probably start to make bigger chairs, sofas, beds, bathtubs, and toilets. And made Hoyer lifts available to the public.
Not sure what they will do with the very tiny restrooms on the airplanes, though. On some of the newer planes flown by American, Delta and United airlines, the bathrooms in coach are just 24 inches wide.

Weight is not a protected class.

75% of US adults are overweight/ obese.

Not for nothing. It's time for black women to own their own salons. Sadly black women would rather go for a college degree vs going for a cosmetology license.

I've heard of putting lipstick on a pig before but not nail polish.

The owner is lucky they're not in Chicago. One of the city activists just put a couple of bricks through the window of a nail salon for disrespecting black women.
