Pregnant woman denied food service because of crop top
A heavily pregnant woman wearing a crop top says she was refused service at a restaurant in Marysville, Wash., Because her outfit violated their health code.
Charisha Raylee Gobin, who is pregnant with twins, posted his experience in a (now deleted) Facebook post that quickly went viral. Gobin would have said she wanted to have take out food, but her mom and sister wanted to have dinner at a restaurant. Gobin agreed, but after arriving at the restaurant, a waitress allegedly asked him to leave.
âI was just refused service at the Buzz Inn on State Avenue in Marysville for my outfit. I violate the health code, âshe captioned in her message on Sunday.

The post resonated with hundreds of people, many of whom shared words of encouragement.
âWe should all wear the same crop top (men, women, kids, skinny, overweight – all of us!) And stand outside the Buzz Inn. Don’t come in, just stand there looking crazy, âSarah wrote, while Emily called Gobin her idol:â I absolutely adore you. You keep showing off your beautiful mom’s belly.
In a Facebook post, Buzz Inn apologized to Gobin for the misunderstanding and promised to cover with staff “how not to over-enforce a rule” that aims to put all guests at ease.
âThe server in question has been with our company and has been an excellent employee for almost 20 years and tried to use his best judgment and in no way tried to humiliate the customer. Once again our sincere apologies for any misunderstanding.

But the restaurant has received its fair share of support, with many suggesting they don’t need to apologize.
âYou have nothing to apologize for,â Charles wrote. âIt was not ‘body shaming’. It is not acceptable to go to a restaurant without having a shirt covering the chest and stomach. It doesn’t matter whether you are pregnant or not.
âWhen eating out, I don’t want to see anyone’s belly, male or female, pregnant or not,â Kell commented. âPut it away, you are not at home, you are in public. As an adult, be aware that you won’t always get what you want or do what you want. Best wishes for your babies.
