Pregnant woman's crop top deemed inappropriate
A heavily pregnant American woman was denied service at a restaurant because she was wearing a crop top.
Charisha Gobin, a mother of four who is seven-and-a-half months pregnant with twins, says she was asked to leave the Buzz Inn Steakhouse in Marysville, Washington because her exposed belly violated the health code.
Gobin was wearing a long white skirt with a black crop top bearing word "Weirdo".
In a Facebook post complaining about her treatment, the 35-year-old says a waitress told her, "I'm sorry, you can't be here in this shirt."
"I said, 'Are you being serious with me right now?' And she said, 'Yep, you can't be here.'"
Gobin told local television channel KIRO 7 that she felt body-shamed and did not believe she would have been asked to leave if she were not pregnant, even if wearing a crop top.
The restaurant has since apologised for the "misunderstanding" and pledged to educate its staff in how not to "overly enforce" its "no shoes, no shirt, no service" policy.
