Pregnant Woman Allegedly Denied Service at Restaurant because of Her Shirt

In today’s trend, many girls wear cut-off shirts that show midriff. I have seen it more and more lately, as the girls wearing the half shirts seem to be younger and younger.

It’s not exactly a classy look, but it is seemingly appropriate in certain summer activity settings.

One pregnant woman in Washington State claims she was denied service at a restaurant for wearing a crop top. She believes that she was singled out for wearing it while being pregnant.

Charisha Gobin told KIRO she was wearing a maxi skirt and crop top when she wasn’t allowed at the Buzz Inn Steakhouse in Marysville, Wash.

“The waitress/bartender stopped us and said, ‘I’m sorry, you can’t be here in that shirt.’ I said, ‘Are you being serious with me right now?’ And she said, ‘Yep, you can’t be here.’”

Gobin said the restaurant employee cited their “no shoes, no shirt, no service” policy and claimed they would have refused any person wearing that type of shirt.

But Gobin told KIRO that she felt like she was singled out because her “belly was bigger and sticking out” and no one else would have had an issue.

Gobin said, “I was wearing a shirt, it had sleeves. I didn’t even have any cleavage showing.”

Buzz Inn Steakhouse did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

The restaurant told KIRO:

“We sincerely apologize for the misunderstanding and will cover with our staff as to how not overly enforce a rule that is intended to make all guests feel comfortable. Our apologies for the misunderstanding. The server in question has been with our company and a great employee for almost 20 years and was trying to use her best judgement (sic) and by no means was trying to be demeaning to the guest again our sincere apology for misunderstanding.”

Do you think they singled her out or were they just following their rules?
