Needless to say, they've lost her business forever.
When I was pregnant, I dressed much as I do the rest of the time. I've never been much of a daring dresser and am pretty modest for the most part. With that said, I don't think a pregnant woman should be expected to dress differently just because she's pregnant, either. Being pregnant isn't a crime and shouldn't be punishable. When Charisha Raylee Gobin decided that she wanted to go out to dinner at a local steakhouse, she never imagined she would be leaving the place furious. She was wearing a long flowing skirt and cute crop top to the Marysville, Washington restaurant.
When I was pregnant, I'd never have dreamed to wear a crop top, but even when I'm not pregnant, I don't wear crop tops. I'm just not that comfortable in my own skin. However, Charisha obviously is comfortable in her own skin and I love that about her. Here's the problem I have with this incident. Is the restaurant turning away other customers if they're wearing a crop top? Or was it just this woman because she's pregnant with twins and quite large? She was only seven months pregnant, but still quite large because there are two babies growing inside that belly.
Some people may have a problem with the outfit just because they grew up in a more conservative era, but I'm not sure how comfortable they would be for a business turning a young woman away when her only "crime" is wearing a crop top. As she said, she wasn't wearing short-shorts and she wasn't even showing cleavage. We all see these things anytime we go out somewhere. However, the restaurant said that Charisha's outfit violated "health code violations" and that's why they asked her to leave. Ridiculous.
The young woman left the restaurant and she was livid. She posted her photo on social media and has gotten a lot of support from people who are outraged on her behalf. Eventually, the restaurant issued an apology on its social media page. "The server in question has been with our [company] for almost 20 years," the statement to the local news media issued by Buzz Inn management read. "[She] was trying to use her best judgment and by no means was trying to be demeaning to [Charisha]." The company went on to offer their "sincerest apologies."
