Nail Salon 'Fat Shaming': Memphis Nail Salon's Sign Causes Outrage On Facebook

A USA nail salon has introduced a surcharge for overweight people, explaining the extra cost as "service fees".

The salon which is courting controversy is Rose Nails is located in Frayser. The sign is now nowhere to be seen in the salon.

In her news report for WREG, Arthur observed that the flooring, chairs, and walls on a second photo of the sign matched that of Rose Nails.

Ferguson claims that she saw the sign in a local salon called Rose Nails, which charges up to $30 for a pedicure.

"They took the sign down and denied ever having it up. pictures are worth a thousand words", Ferguson posted to Facebook on Friday.

However, their failure to win means they now face an almighty fight to qualify for next season's Champions League. As a testament to how good they've been at home, they sit above both the Manchester teams in the home table.

In the past week, Ferguson's post has been shared more than 500 times, and has gotten more than 70 comments, majority from angry women accusing the nail salon of fat shaming and discriminating against overweight customers.

Since then, several women have expressed their solidarity with Fergusson and shared disappointment over the discriminating statement. "Just wow", one person commented on the Facebook post.

Rose Nails salon owner Son Nguyen said overweight customers had cost his business more than US$2000 in repairs. When quizzed whether the company was responsible for committing such an act, Nguyen denied putting up the sign. Nguyen stated that the image could have been taken anywhere and not necessarily his salon. He added that he has had issues because it was "difficult for technicians to give them pedicures".

He also claimed hefty clients had broken two chairs costing between £1,600 and £2,000.

The owner's assertion of incurring damage because of overweight customers has received backlash on social media. What about a disabled person that finds it clumsy to get into the spa chair? He denied that the sign ever existed despite being confronted with the photographic evidence.
