Extremely Offensive Pedicure Charge Has This Owner Denying His Own Shop

Deshania Ferguson was shocked when she walked in to Rose Nails in Frayser, Tennessee and was greeted with a new sign.

The sign in question has sparked a ton of conversation around the internet, with most people taking Deshania's side on it.

Rose Nails decided they needed to add on an extra $5 charge for pedicures, but it only applies to a certain demographic of people...and it's pretty outlandish.

That's right. Rose Nails is charging an extra $5 for people they deem to be overweight.

Except there's one problem...Son Nguyen, who owns Rose Nails, says the sign isn't from his salon. He denied any sign, even though the reporter claims it was taken at his salon.

โ€œSo this isnโ€™t your business? Even though the floors and chairs match? The sign was never in your business?โ€ questioned reporter Shay Arthur.

โ€œNo there are same walls and floors everywhere, it could be anywhere,โ€ explained Nguyen.

The owner says the only 'extra' charge he has is for men, because they don't come in as often. But then later, Nguyen admits he just flat out doesn't serve people who are "severely overweight" because technicians have a "hard time" giving them pedicures, and he's had many broken chairs in the past which "hurts the bottom line."

Giphy

People are obviously upset about this form of discrimination, wondering who gets to decide who is overweight and how exactly that makes it harder for people to get pedicures???

Other people say it's his business and he can do what he wants. If you don't like it, don't go to his salon.

What do you think about this extra charge? Is it warranted? Let us know.
