Michelle Fonville Charged Extra By Georgia Nail Salon For Being Overweight (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Natural Nails in Dekalb County, Georgia added a rather interesting and apparently discriminatory surcharge onto one client's bill: $5 for being overweight. WSB TV reports that salon manager Kim Tran told customer Michelle Fonville that the extra money was to pay for the $2,500 pedicure chair should it break, since it has a weight capacity of 200 pounds. Ultimately, Tran waived the $5 fee...and also told Fonville not to come back.
