KTRK-TV

A Houston woman was denied a pedicure at a nail salon because she was deemed too big to fit in the chair.

Tina Lewis was shocked when she was told she couldn't fit in the salon chairs at Rose Nails salon in Houston.

"I was like, 'Can I get a pedicure? And what chair do I sit in?'" Lewis told ABC News affiliate KTRK-TV in Houston. "And [the employee] was like, the chairs were not big enough for me to sit in. And I was like, 'Are you serious?'"

KTRK-TV reviewed the video footage which captured the exchange without sound.

Lewis said her mother was as shocked as she was.

"She was like, 'What did she just say?'" Lewis told the station. "I said, 'Yes, mama, she just said that to me.'"

Salon worker Marie Bui confirmed Lewis's story.

"I said, 'I'm sorry I cannot serve you because my spa chair is very small,'" Bui told ABC News. She said she never intended to insult or hurt Lewis, but that another obese customer already broke one of their pricey salon chairs.

"After that, the spa chair and the machine broke underneath," Bui told the station, adding that the chairs are too expensive to replace or repair, especially with the salon's narrow profit margin.

Lewis didn't buy the worker's story and said she would not return to that salon, according to ABC News.

    I literally laughed out loud. My black manicurist has a bench style seat with two bowls. I wonder if this is the reason

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile go to another shop ..... Chile whatever..... there are plenty nail shops .... bye with this !

  • Coy little wink

    I don't see a problem ? why is she talking to ABC news

  • Navybeans95

    That part about those chairs being super expensive...about 3 grand each depending on the style and there is a weight limit...roller coasters will deny entry, airlines will charge more....all the same dilemma for a bigger person...lose some weight, stay home or do research on shops that can accommodate your size...

  • Junkanoo

    Why don't these women seek out black owned businesses that are professional and do a good job even if it's out of their way . Asians are racist not all but many they just want our money .Even in the Caribbean Asians chase black dollars Black folks need to use our spending power to our own advantage not disadvantage. I did laugh at this all the same .

  • Soda

    She's not embarrassed to tell this story without them blurring her face? ?

  • Starburst

    Ditto!!!

  • Jai

    Go to another ship give them your business instead. Honestly where did she think she was going to sit for pedicure if chair was too small? Was she going to stand and hold her leg out or were they suppose to lift her ass up and give her pedicure at same time?

  • WhoKnew

    OT: Bobby Brown was taken off a JetBlue flight and arrested. They're trying to say he was disruptive when he wanted another drink and they turned him down. Witnesses call bullshyt on him being disruptive saying he was calm. Flying while black again?

  • Navybeans95

    Yesss..brings me back to my hairstylist days...barber chairs are expensive especially those pedicure chairs...I had a barber chair break on me because of an obese person..then he threatened to sue me for falling out my chair on his fat az....

  • Li-Wright

    I'm with the salon owner. Those chairs cost a lot of money. If you break it, will you pay for it. And I'm sorry, black women got to stop loving their fat arses. I was up to 175/180 lbs and lost 20 lbs, because I'm diabetic, and the weight was doing harm. I encourage all black women -- TRY TRY TO LOSE SOME WEIGHT!
    What's sad is that Tina said she felt good about herself -- Look at Tina! she can hardly walk!

  • Ni Ni

    Them asians don't care what the say. I sho learned my lesson after they shamed me.

  • WhoKnew

    Exactly. That's not the nail shop's problem if your ass too big to fit in the chair so I don't know why she felt she needed to advertise how fat her ass is to the media.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I never knew pedicure chairs had a weight restriction

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    It ain't..... shewt it's their shop what can ya do ..... and when folks treat you like that why would you even want to get your nails done there.... this woe me BS done got on my nerves ... she can politely spend her money elsewhere ... case solved ..... but she want us to get mad too .... btych bye! .... That's her struggle not da world .... sick of folks .... go somewhere where they will serve you right and treat ya right ..... hell she da fool for even discussing this BS on da news embarrassing

  • Gamer????? Chick
  • Ni Ni

    Po Bobby. I thought his days in handcuffs were long gone. Wait, Leolah didn't issue this report, did she?

  • Li-Wright

    They do. That salon had very slim slender chairs. The owner said she paid a couple of hundred bucks, but I believe they run more $$, unless she's renting the chairs.

  • Seldomseen

    Lol

  • Gamer????? Chick

    Chileee, I can remember as a child in the 80’s one of my uncles friends came over and sat his big ass on the gas heater and damn near caved it in.

  • WhoKnew

    Nope, Leolah didn't issue this report but you can expect a report from her in about 5.4.3.2.1... any second now. LOL. I know damned well, Bobby ain't make her his spokesperson but she always got something to say.

  • Soda

    That's probably her reason for letting the world know about this, to sue them. Like the dude suing Starbucks because they misspelled the name he told them, even though it wasn't his real name anyway.

  • Ni Ni

    I told it a while ago, but here goes. I was a broke college student and went out to a bar where some older asian women were bartending. They gave me the third degree because i didn't tip them. I just had enough money for my dranks; i was sooo embarrassed.

  • Ni Ni

    Lol

  • Well$$Well$$?

    I absolutely think it was nasty and rude to tell her she was too big to get a pedicure.. Sounds like a Vietnamese salon. Not to stereotype but I'm in the nail industry and have worked for them and they can be nasty af.. On the flip side though, those pedicure chairs cost thousands of dollars. So I can see why they'd be concerned she'd break it etc. Still could've said it in a nicer way though..

  • Navybeans95

    Yeah...u have to be extra careful these days...she can probably claim discrimination if she gets a good lawyer, then shops will eventually be required to post weight limit signs above the chairs...state board plays no games...

  • WutizstillHERE!

    350 is the max..some spas still accept people but do not turn on the message or recline them at risk of breaking them..sad and true

  • Ni Ni

    Yeah, i should have. I get mad just thinking about it.?

  • WutizstillHERE!

    So this lady had to be over 350.. because that is the max limit on most standard salon chairs..

  • Seldomseen

    ?????

  • Kanyade
  • Nophace
  • Coy little wink

    Exactly! Her and her mama ought to be embarrassed

  • Ni Ni

    They should invest in one of those big chairs like Dr. Now has in his waiting room on my 600 pound life.?

  • Kimberly King

    1.) Y'all constantly go to these Asian nails shops and be surprised when shit happens.

    2.) If the chairs are not big enough to fit her, what does she want them to do ? Either lose weight or find another shop. ?

  • Alextra Ballard

    ????

  • Dowoop

    Why/How did this make news?

  • Kimberly King

    Coming from someone who has Vietnamese family members, you're right.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I neva knew that

  • Alextra Ballard

    Damnnn ok

  • the guest

    Well.

  • Kthirst475

    It cld happen in a black salon too. This wasnt anout color. Unfortunately there are a lot of places that dont accommodate ppl who are bigger than a certain size. Most stores dont. Even the ones who are plus size stores, their sizes run up to a certain number so?????

  • ………

    if the chairs are pricey and you're now serving customers in the USA (all different,... i mean different sizes and shapes) shouldn't you make sure your salon is equipped to service EVERYONE!!!! smh

  • imright

    if ya too big, ya too big ?????

  • The REAL Cheese eggs

    *come on now sis*.....?

  • MsPam

    ?You know that you are not right! ? I’m over here trying to visualize it.

  • Coy little wink

    This is why I don't watch the news...mostly its BS and they constantly portray negative stereotypes

  • KneeSee

    Ikr. Was it her point to shame the salon? If that had happened to me, I never would've told a soul.

  • the guest

    Tipping and Gratuity are courtesies not guarantees and bartenders and waitstaff who shame customers do not deserve tips. A good server always serves with kindness because they know they work on karma and good energy comes back.

  • Tinytoon

    She want compensation for her inconvenience.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Exactly

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Exactly ! Smh

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Maybe it was the Vietnamese I've worked for but I've gotten into some outright screaming matches with them lol. I think they thought because I was like the only black girl in the salon they could treat me like shat or that they were better than me. I have my liscence just like you do, you don't have to like me but you will respect me.????

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I wouldn't even embarrass myself any further by doing an interview.

    That being said, in the pic she doesn't look that big and the chairs usually fit big azz men.

  • KLo

    she should pull back from the table. A heavyset family member broke my plastic lawn chair (that I bought from Family Dollar) https://media2.giphy.com/media/1hzADUYFbl3yNCXZDZ/giphy.gif

  • Lovely517

    So little ms. Fatty went to the press about this? I guess she’s trying to get all the black folk riled up. Nah sis, this sound like a “you” problem to me??

  • KLo

    Somebody get Oprah on the phone and see if she will sign this lady up for WW program

  • KLo

    I bet she hasn't seen her feet in years

  • Junkanoo
  • Let them eat cake

    they make a lot of slick comments.

  • Coy little wink

    Lolooo that's not compensable

  • the guest

    They even have nail techs that come to the house. I don’t think salons are responsible for accommodating morbidly obese customers.

    However, the salon should have a manufacturers sign posted that chairs can only accommodate up to certain weight and they reserve the right to refuse service. This makes refusal of service not personal and not liable for discrimination.

  • Ni Ni

    I agree!?

  • Well$$Well$$?

    And they low key don't like black people. Which is weird to me because sistas are the ones who patronize their salons. You might see a Sprite here or there but by far the folks who bring in the money are black...

  • Curtis

    Fat people break chairs, used to work with a big woman who used to break those computer chairs in a week. She was blaming her big booty but she was fat everywhere.

  • Li-Wright

    You can't tell anybody how to run their business and what kind of money they should spend.

  • Coy little wink

    No just handicap accessible as to the entry/exits...i think

  • LoveChild

    ???? Sistas morbid obesity ain’t cute period. No matter how many of us be lying about being fluffy or thicc. Yeh I know other races of women big too but too many BW are obese like she is. It’s expensive to be that fat plus bad for health.

  • LoveChild

    She looks about 350 pounds to me that’s morbid obese

  • LoveChild

    But it’s their business! Why should everybody have to conform for a morbid obese person when it should be the other way around.

  • LoveChild

    Yeah she’s over 350 pounds

  • Alextra Ballard

    Well since I now know that pedicure chairs has a weight restriction,I understand why the owners denied her a pedicure.....I mean what else did she expect them tew dew? If the restriction is 250-300lbs and you’re 350+ yew are definitely a liability. If she would have sat in a chair and it broke,she could have gotten hurt....the establishment would he liable.

  • LoveChild

    I agree. But you can’t tell some of these hardheaded sisters nothing they keep talking about I got a man being fat etc. etc. they got a scrub. Some black women with straight cuss you out if you suggest a diet.

  • Alextra Ballard

    ??????? stoooop!!!!! I know um sew wrong for laffin....

  • Nita Pie

    Is that her Whoa dance? LMAO!!

  • Kimberly King

    I made it about color because it is. I know of plenty of black salons in Houston who accommodate women who are bigger. They have larger chairs or their set up makes it easy for anyone to sit.

  • stav

    Totally off topic, but just looking at her picture ..I can't help but state how tired I am of the false eyelash look on females wearing them on a daily basis...I can't ! It is utterly ridiculous, special occasions-Yes, everyday-NO. Please make this go away ASAP

  • Li-Wright

    The salon should also put a sign up "limited to pounds XXX"

  • Ni Ni

    Not at all.

  • Li-Wright

    It's a different culture. They probably do and talk the same way when they're in their country.

  • Renee26

    They should get bigger chairs. Everything is supposed to be bigger in TX anyway.

    There's tons of obese people that get these services... A lot of diabetics keep a fresh pedi and are over weight too. They should cater to their clientele and have at least 1 or 2 oversized chairs.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lmaoooo????

  • Navybeans95

    ??...I do recall finding a welder to get my chairs reinforced ..and some shop insurance...people sue over anything....

  • Soda
  • Renee26

    When I was younger I worked at Olive Gardten and they had armless chairs for the morbidly obese customers. Those joints were extra sturdy too

  • stav

    Ugh! I know, with all the white glue you can see on some, you can definitely tell the cheap ones, and those who are novices who put them on themselves. The bottom line is where are you going, why do you need on 4in eyelashes daily?

  • Li-Wright

    Did she pay for the chairs?

  • Blak

    Ok, and? She knows her ass is too big and that there is a high probability that she will damage the chairs but she wants to be in denial and make it everyone elses fault instead of letting this serve as her wake up call.

  • Li-Wright

    I remember when people evacuated Katrina (black people) and it was showing all the overweight obese people in New Orleans. I remember TV reports about how unhealthy NOLA people were because they ate such calorie-high food and that NOLA had a high incident of stroke and diabetes.
    I'm glad the movement is now toward healthy. When I go walking and to the gym, I see more black overweight people working those machines. I know their doctor told them to go.
    I'm walking with my African neighbor who has gained 40 lbs in the last year. She can just barely make it around the corner without stopping for breath.

  • Let them eat cake

    yep they can't stand blacks. and i really hate going to their salons but i cant for the life of me find a black nail tech anywhere. i hate giving them my money. sometimes i have to clap back at their annoying asses.

  • BlackLivesMatter

    Second thought, they could have still serviced her with a portable bowl...so they should have those portable bowls for their morbidly obese clientele....don't lose out on making those coins...

  • Vonn

    I mean.......was she going to stand up during the pedicure?

  • stav

    So that product really works ? To me special occasions are ok , just to do something different, but they have to be short and come off as soon as the occasion is over, but I feel you. I have really short natural lashes but the right mascara ain't no joke, it can do wonders.

  • Li-Wright

    If you break it, do you pay for it?

  • Renee26

    For their customer base...people of all sizes

  • Vonn
  • Renee26

    You break you buy

    You supposed to type it in their voice ?

  • BlackLivesMatter

    everywhere? Her eyelids? LOL

  • Alextra Ballard

    I also think they should post a weight restriction

  • Li-Wright

    Now that you mention it, I wish the airlines would stop accommodate overweight people -- or charge them more. I was sitting next to a fat arse black brother and could barely move in my airline chair because he was squeezing me. Now, I look for the obese people sitting and move away.

  • Vonn

    Those oversized chairs cost oversized money. If they have a huge clientele, pun intended, they should get the chairs. Otherwise, nope.

  • BlackLivesMatter

    They aren't saying she wouldn't necessarily fit but that her weight would damage the chair...

  • BlackLivesMatter

    yes, use portable stations for the big and beautiful

  • Vonn

    ?

  • Carrington

    I need to see the chair... and I need her to stand up so that I can decide for myself.
    On second thought, I'm going to go to the book of Googlations and then drive by this spot to see with thine own eyes.

  • BlackLivesMatter

    Yeah they don't be giving no fvcks....I almost fought this asian man once....not too long ago

  • ………

    Sure can't!!!! But if you're unable to provide FULL service that should be noted at the DOOR or visibly listed to avoid News camera's and suit. America made it to easy sue for anything!!!!

  • ………

    Well list is as LIMITED SERVICES... ONLY SERVICING CUSTOMERS 200LBS OR LESS lmao

  • LoveChild

    Keyword is denial. Again I don’t care what other races are doing but too many black women are in denial about this shit!!

  • MiamiBayshore

    Exactly it wasn’t rude just direct.. the owner could offer to do old style pedicure.. the lady could sit in her wheel/ hover around chair and use wash basin to soak feet No disrespect.. it the won’t be spa whirlpool but at least have clean tootsie

  • Mrs. King

    I just came here to read all the fat shaming! Boy y’all ignorant azzes sho didn’t disappoint. I hate people sometimes

  • LoveChild

    It’s an excuse to be that damn fat. Now they’re trying to jump on the lupus and thyroid bandwagon to say that’s why so many black women are obese nope it’s called over eating.

  • ………

    Exactly..... not trying to tell them how to run their business..... but Customer Service goes a long way and those Oriental can't stand those customers... but love they their money!

  • Renee26

    ? no tellin how many other people were turned away. The other customer broke the chair... I'm betting it's more than just a few obese people that have gone there

  • Curtis

    No she didn't, the company used to replace them without questioning. She was those old time employees and union rep.

  • BlackLivesMatter

    I got a deep chuckle out of this one...LOL

  • BlackLivesMatter

    no, if they sit her in it, then it's their responsibility....she didn't purposely break it...

  • KLove

    LOL not this again....nothing against larger folks, but it is what it is...you cannot fit into everything.....this also happened a few years back at the nail salon on Covington Hwy/Panola by the liquor store..the girl called the news and everything.....those chairs run upwards of $10K and I dont blame the salon at all!!

  • Li-Wright

    You can see the chair in the video.

    Yes I can read you stupid azz batch. Did I say anything about me? Stop trying be so fukN smart mouth and YOU read...Dumb ho

  • dontgetblocked

    I gained a large amount in a short period of time due to health issues. You know when you're azz is big. The lawnchair sticks to your butt when you try to stand. There are permanent dips in your couch where you like to sit. You go to a restaurant and the table has to be moved forward because you don't fit. You hobble around work like your heavily pregnant. You're FAT. I knew I was fat and changed my diet. The world can't adjust to your inability to fit the average size anything. People are going to have to let you know ...YOU'RE TOO BIG! Instead of taking the hint...this fat mama has the nerve to complain. Get some help and lose the weight.

  • Bree

    She should just take her business elsewhere. There is a nail salon that will accommodate her.

  • TheFlow

    i was generalizing. Of course you wouldnt know what that means you filthy hood rat.

    The chairs are thousands of dollars new lol

  • Truth ???

    My old coworker broke her chair and tried to blame it on her height?. She is fat and tall, so of course it couldn't have been those full three course meals (including dessert), she calls lunch?. Belching and moaning all day..I was happy as héll to get up out of there.

  • Music

    Dr. Now would've gave her a diet plan, and told her to come back in 3 months for a pedicure.

  • Alextra Ballard

  • Li-Wright

    There's a vid on Youtube, how the Black business lost beauty business to the Asians. It's very insightful.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    When you're that big, all those extra pounds you're carrying are going to take years off your lifespan. I think she has more pressing concerns to be worried about, other than not being allowed to sit in a salon chair.

  • The Chosen 1.

    Girl, no. You are wrong for that, lol.

  • Mark

    Now you know when you start breaking seats its time to find a fitness plan no one should want to be willingly obese .

  • Mark

    Nah it's not fat "shaming" it is not healthy and takes years off your life.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Nah, something is up. She ain't that damn big to be causing all this commotion over some pedicure chairs. I have NEVER heard such a thing. They normally have big enough chairs to fit someone even 350..

  • Mz_Opinionated

    You're getting a beaten tink! ??? You eviscerated her with one comment

  • joel adams

    Please STOP the shenanigans folks! Did she REALLY need to be interviewed about HER BIG ASS NOT being able to fit in a chair?! Blk people, here’s the thing: rather than complain about a problem. Create a solution. Bring ya own damn chair and get the local hood rat who braided yo hair to also clean ya toes and paint dem in the comfort of yo section 8

  • hi-liter

    Right. She really ain’t em that “big”.....like some of these MFs in here no damn well they got fat Mama’s, G-ma’s, Aunties and all tryna act like the shit can’t happen to them or a family member.

    Click on the tv station link and watch the video. She's huge especially about the midsection and thigh area. The arm chair handle would need to be left down.

  • joel adams

    There’s a LaQueisha right NOW that’ll do it half the price and at her house

    My best friend (female) is big as well and suffers from a few health issues. Then each one her breasts weighs 16lbs. And her knees and feet fucked up. I hate that I feel it should be easy for her to just drink water and eat light but she don’t wanna do it

  • joel adams

    I blame the whole BBW “thing”
    And Drake

  • Harley

    She’s putting effort into her feet but not her weight? Sounds like she needs to lose weight. The airlines charge for extra seats if your big. If your ass is fat YOU have to make accommodations not other people

  • Mz_Opinionated

  • Thee Jaguar Doll

    At the nail salon I go to, There are always huge ass Caucasian women in the spa chairs. They don't deny them service... Then again, Money talks & bullshyt walks!

    You are right about that. Some really look natural but others ?

  • hi-liter

    ??????????????

  • Harley

    No one is obligated to accommodate someone that can’t control their eating habits. Now by law, people who have disabilities are accommodated but eating to much and not caring for your health is not the public’s issue

  • 2gr8ful

    ?

  • hi-liter

    Do you know her? How you know if she is unable to control her eating habits?

  • Harley

    No one is fat shaming just like no one is obligated to accommodate someone because their fat. The airlines even charge for two seats. America is full of greedy people who think good is entertainment and not nourishment

  • Harley

    They are not obligated to make fat people comfortable. Only people with disabilities are legally to be provided for. Being obese is often a choice unless it’s caused by a medical condition

  • joel adams

    Girl, do your own pedicure......... If you can touch your toes without cutting off blood flow to your brain. I remember after I had my baby I still had a lot of weight on me . I bent over in a chair to tie my shoes and loss my breath. Scared the crap out me

    Thank goodness this women turned around and left and did not become irate.

  • The Art

    When I was growing up my mother never hosted the holidays at our house because she didn't want fat ass family members breaking up her furniture. I guess this salon has the same logic.

  • The Art

    Same here.

  • The Art

    AMEN!!!

  • NeverSurprised

    This woman looks like she is about the same size as Lizzo, yet people are constantly lying to Lizzo, telling her obese ass that she "looks good", and encouraging her to walk around half naked. ALL of these big fat women are equally unhealthy and need to be honest with themselves about their weight problem. It is not society's responsibility to accommodate their delusion about their self image. The shop owner had every right to protect her investment by not allowing her to damage her equipment.

  • Dontgetdraggedputa??

    But if they didnt have chairs big enough for her were they really discriminating? I think some ppl pretend to be opressed when theyre the issue and need to check themselves. No fat shaming boo you chose to be this big so you cant be mad when some places cant accommodate you. I have an alcoholic cousin whos been kicked out of most bars and clubs inLA for getting tore up and starting sheet but let her tell it its because theyre racist ?

    That woman is easily 300 pounds. Once your tittles and stomach all melt together and your waist as wide as your line backer shoulders it’s time to stop thinking about nails and pedicures. Get your azz in the gym and change your diet. Quality men isn’t checking for a woman looking like her because her nails and feet are done.

  • chan chan

    ????

  • chan chan

    Fat shaming? She fat shamed herself. That big arse woman is so delusional about her weight she felt someone did her wrong: the average black female is too big. I go to the gym and I’m the only black woman there or maybe an older fit black woman as well. I even go jogging in my neighborhood and the fat black women be sitting on the porch looking at me like I’m crazy for exercising.

  • chan chan

    I just watched the video. That black woman was so big she could barely walk. She literally walked like a gorilla then said u have to be reallllll big to break the chair ? I’m done!!!!!

    I am a big fat woman equally unhealthy being honest and saying I have a weight problem. I am not delusional about and understand that according to my chin down I should and do have a horrible self image. Thank you for that much needed observation. I will set it as a reminder on my daily calendar. One down few more million to go...NOTE: THIS IS ALLEGORY! noone should think this about (him/her)self

  • Chocolate

    Hopefully this is a wake-up call for her and she takes control of her health.
    This reminds me of my 6’6 ex who is 280 pounds ..that’s when I found out a lot of chairs only accommodate up to 250.
    I don’t think this was discrimination..and I can’t believe she drew even more attention to this embarrassing situation.

    The good thing is at her size, just drinking half her weight in water, a 10-15 min walk per day, light chair aerobics and detoxing on veggies, fruits and nuts for a couple weeks will really help her reduce fast, and hopefully motivate her to lose the rest.

    I hope a trainer and nutritionist sees this and volunteers to help her.

    My friend had gastric and it gave me a different perspective on the morbidly obese. They have an addiction with too many enablers around them- it’s really sad.
    And that surgery is a joke.
    God is able tho.

  • Applebum

    This is embarrassing. There was no need to contact the news channel. She wanted to point out discrimination but instead she embarrassed herself. Learn to do your own feet at home, hire a traveling nail tech or lose the weight. Talking about she’s got “good self esteem.” Lady please!

  • NeverSurprised

    Life is so very, very short. To take control of your size and weight NOW -- and YES, it is something over which you have COMPLETE control -- will be the greatest gift you give to yourself and to those who love you. Being healthy means you will have more freedom to enjoy life and, more importantly, your loved ones will be blessed to have you around for as many years as possible. Good luck in your fight!. YOU CAN DO IT!!!

  • Chapter29Chick

    Yeah obesity is definitely common in Houston. Where I lived they had a block party every week and served bbq amongst other things. Especially when Scarface had a new music video coming out. They love to eat in Houston & on top of that grandmas in Texas will throw down and have u making about 3 plates especially on Sunday after church. I miss Houston ?...

    Why do ghetto people always find 'disposable income' on things they don't need but they never have the basics?
    Why don't these women get together and do like they used to-fix hair at homes and do the same with pedicures and manicures and save money?

  • chan chan

    ? I definitely logged out after I seen the video. The second hand embarrassment was awful.

  • Lea

    Some people are looking for a reason to be offended. Okay so the chairs are not big enough, take your behind somewhere that will accommodate your size and move on. I would have been embarrassed to say the least but I would have never reached out to the news station to let the world know what took place. Then it notes that she will never return to the nail salon again. Well listen Linda they will not serve you anyways so it's a win win for everyone.

  • SpiceGirl
  • Karen Brady

    Chile she may be one of the reasons they selling out...

  • interestingconcept1

    If the chair dont fit you must not sit! Lose weight.

  • Lea
  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    This nail shop must have small cheaply made salon chairs because all of the nail salons I have gone to in Houston and surrounding areas, they are sturdy enough to fit someone 300 lbs+. I've seen some pretty fluffy women in the nail salon and they fit just fine in the chairs. And these are in some of the hood shops, too.

    Edit: I guess I should've watched the video prior to commenting.. She could barely walk. I didn't realize she was that big. Then I saw the salon chairs..

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    I'm not a large lady but I got gotdurn TIRED of giving them my money. I went to Amazon, ordered all the tools, then went to YouTube to learn and got to work on my own nails and feet. To this day, I chuckle to myself when I think of how much money I save. They do NOT respect us period. We are just dollar signs to them, ladies, do your own nails and feet. If I learned, anybody can learn. I keep a fresh gel polish too! Especially after I learned the gel UV/LED lamp was only $19.99 on Amazon. Please! My nails stay cute! People always ask how I'm constantly changing my colors...I sit my behind on my couch and do it myself while watching tv. ?

  • LoveChild

    The last part what you wrote . Morbidly obese black women think it’s normal and it is because they’re enabled by a family and community who hates them because if you love somebody you sure as hell going to tell them they need to get healthy.

    And before some troll pop up I don’t give a damn what other races do I’m a black woman and I’m strictly focused on BW obesity.

    Lizzo is a morbidly obese female. White people love her because she is not a threat to them also known as the mammy archetype. A lot of black females love her because they’re also morbidly obese and love seeing their dysfunction reflected.

    She really hooked me up I buy everything online I don’t go to any beauty supply stores I don’t go to any Asian nail salons I don’t even go to any Black hair salons either because some of them be funky too.

    Shit she even hipped me to some recipes on YouTube how to make Asian fried rice!! So I cut them out too????I can make some slamming shrimp fried rice chicken fried rice beef stirfry everything you could buy in a restaurant served by somebody with a attitude and a lot of MSG.

    I work with a smart sista more BW need coaches I’m learning so much.

    This reminds me of a time when i was dating a big girl. I was like 18 so i was still in my mamas crib sleeping on a damn twin size. Anyway, after some time of us sleeping on that bish together the bed was damn near falling apart. By the time i saved up enough ends to cop a full size all the springs in the bed had collapsed. So one day, my moms walks by my room and sees ol girl sitting on the new bed and she legit says "why don't you make that girl sit in a chair". Lol i was weak. I know she didn't mean no harm cuz she kinda whispered it. Moms is gone now so these are the little things i still reminisce and laugh about. Now i look back. Shorty was big as hell.
