Too Big To Tan?

Posted: Updated:

A woman was told she was too fat to tan at a Norton, Ohio tanning salon.

Kelly McGrevey said she purchased a tanning package at Aloha Tanning in Norton on Monday after a quick tour of the salon.

When she returned to tan on Tuesday, McGrevey says the man working at Aloha at the time turned her away.

"He said, "Sorry, but I'm not going to let you tan today because we've just implemented a new policy where anyone over 230 pounds can't go in one of our beds,'" said McGrevey. "I was just so shocked and embarrassed and humiliated."

On Monday, McGrevey tanned in a standup bed. When she returned Tuesday, that bed was broken and she was told traditional beds were off-limits to heavy customers.

"It really upset me. It's discrimination," said McGrevey.
