The internet is outraged at this nail salon for charging 'overweight' people extra.

The salon owner has a really lame excuse.

A Tennesee woman named Deshania Ferguson posted a since deleted picture on Facebook of a sign that pissed her off in a nail salon. The sign read, “Sorry, but if you are overweight, pedicures will be $45 due to service fees for pedicurists. Thank you!” (Uh, you’re welcome, I guess?) Pedicures at the salon usually cost about $30.


Along with the picture Deshania Ferguson wrote, “Went to get my nails done on Overton Crossing and Frayser Blvd and this is what they have up…so rude,” followed by a bunch of angry face emojis.

Twitter wasn’t having it either.

Who even determines who’s “overweight”? It’s such an arbitrary judgment! Is the salon planning on figuring out the BMIs of its customers?

Local news station WREG went to the salon, but the sign had reportedly already been taken down. The owner of the nail salon, Son Nguyen, denied that the Facebook picture had been taken in his salon, even though the walls and floor allegedly matched, saying “[the salon in the photograph] could be anywhere.”

Nguyen did say, however, that he denies service to anyone “severely overweight,” citing the extra work for the manicurists and damage to his chairs. He admits that customers have gotten upset with him over his policy.

Really? You don’t say.

Most of the animation you see these days is done by computers. It seems that we see fewer and fewer films made with stop-motion animation, a time-consuming art where objects are manipulated and photographed 24 times per second to create the illusion of motion.
