Women protest against Byron nail salon’s pedicure weight limit
BYRON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) — Women are taking a stand against a Byron nail salon after the owner says women who weigh more than 200 pounds cannot get a pedicure.
Women stood outside Byron Nails Monday afternoon, waving signs in a peaceful protest.
Protester Marsha Gosier says, “you can’t weigh dignity.”
“To not offer any alternatives and just shut everything down based on a number you just arbitrarily come up with, shows no compassion to put your customers first,” she said.
Gosier worries that other businesses will implement the weight rule.
