I have never been to a Hooters, but it is my understanding that the idea is that waitresses are supposed to be buxom and beautiful. Or at least female, nonugly — and nonoverweight.
Yet a Michigan judge now says that an overweight waitress can sue for … weight discrimination.
Don’t hate me because I’m not beautiful.
For what it’s worth, it appears that it’s actually not the judge’s fault. Some idiot Michigan lawmaker wrote a provision into an anti-discrimination law that permits such a lawsuit. Who knows if he would have intended to apply the law to a business like Hooters. Hell, he probably never even read the law.
