Jule 01, 2013: A US woman has lashed out a beauty salon in Arkansas after she was refused a pedicure because staff said she was too big for the chair.
Rachel Bascue was denied a pedicure twice in two days at Regal Nails Salon in Hot Springs in the state of Arkansas last week because of her weight, just a day after her mother was also refused for the same reason.
Ms Bascue recorded the conversation she had with staff on her mobile phone on her second attempt at getting her nails done.
"The chair under 250. You cannot fit," a male staff member told her in front of other customers.
Another staff member then told her it was for her own safety despite Ms Bascue visiting the salon less than three months ago.
"I've tried to tell you too many times. It's not fit for you. It's dangerous," another staff member told Ms Bascue.
"It is for your own benefit."
Ms Bascue told NBC she was humiliated.
"I have been talked about and made fun of, but this is the first time I was made to feel like a freak," she said.
