WREG got in touch with the nail salon's owner, Son Nguyen, and spoke with him in person.

Originally the post, which was shared on Facebook, said: 'Sorry, but if you are overweight, pedicures will be $45 due to service fees for pedicurists.

He said damage to salon chairs caused by them had cost his business more than US$2000.

A nail salon in Tennessee has come under fire for apparently putting up a sign stating that bigger customers must pay more for treatments, reported The Daily Mail.

In the past week, Ferguson's post has been shared more than 500 times, and has gotten more than 70 comments, majority from angry women accusing the nail salon of fat shaming and discriminating against overweight customers. "Just wow", one person commented on the Facebook post.

The woman who posted the picture claimed it was Tennessee's Rose Nails, where the usual cost of the service is $25 (£20).

Son Nguyen, the owner, told local news outlet WREG that the sign never existed despite the photographic evidence posted on social media. The sign is now nowhere to be seen in the salon. Nguyen added that as he's been in business for nine years, he is now trying to appease any customers who may have been offended by the sign Ferguson shared last Sunday.

He then complained that he had had to turn overweight customers away before, because it was too hard to give them pedicures.

A Starbucks customer recently claimed she had been labelled "fat" by an employee who wrote on her cup.
