Woman Turns Down Job, Claims Manager Body Shamed Her - Manager Says It Never Happened

Crystal Harrington, 22, works as a health aide during the day. Yet, the single mother was hoping to make extra money by becoming a waitress at night. She interviewed for a job at Baytown Seafood, where the manager made a shocking statement.

Harrington told Fox News, “While you might have a skinny waitress do a really crappy job she’s going to get the tips, whereas big girls like us, and she did say us and I don’t know why because she’s not my size. She’s not big to me, big girls like us won’t get the tip.”

The manager also allegedly said she was being "straight forward" in her comments. Harrington was still offered the job but turned it down. Harrington explained, “It was over the line."

Harrington ultimately turned down the job offer, saying “I turned it down because I did not want to work for somebody like that if you're going to be that discouraging and you going to look at me like that just because of my size I don't want to work for you."

According to Mary Pruett, the Baytown Seafood manager who interviewed Harrington, the comments about Harrington’s weight were never actually made.

“That is incorrect, what she has posted is incorrect. She was offered a job. Nothing was said about size because you have all sizes working here and I can't determine what the customer is going to give in tips," Pruett told Fox26.

Harrington said she felt discriminated against and posted her story to Facebook on Jan. 18.
