A nail salon in Georgia – charged an extra 5 dollars to a customer for being obese…
40 year old Michelle Fonville says she was “Humiliated” and reduced to tears.
“Being fat is not a legally protected class. Race, national origin, religion, disability, age, those things are. But for whatever the reason – legislatures have not – as of yet – decided that overweight people will be protected as a class – except under the ADA which is very very limited. But essentially – being overweight – you can be discriminated against – and it may not be nice, and it may not be right – but that’s the law.”
That was Clint David – attorney with David, Goodman and Madole – speaking with Bob at WTVN.
The salon refunded the woman her 5 dollars, but told her not to come back again, because of her weight.
Fonville is considering suing.
Buzzing right along:
A middle school football coach – near Nashville – fired – for writing a song criticizing President Obama.
According to parents – the school found the lyrics to be derogatory to the President.
Last year – a school teacher made the news for writing a pro Obama song – and having her class sing it.
Double standard? That’s what Jim and Gary of WSBA wanted to know of Fox News Radio’s Todd Starnes:
“I think the concern is that in fact you’ve got some school districts that actually sing praises to President Obama – here you’ve got a guy that was canned because he wrote a song that had some negative things to say about him.”
The superintendent of the school disputes the notion that was the reason for Glovers firing – though he declined to comment as to why exactly the firing took place.
