Fat Club: Nightclub Club Bounces Fat People

by | 30th, July 2008

TO the famous Havana Club in downtown St Helier, Jersey, where some customers are at the door.

Georgina Mason, 23, who is among the group, takes up the story:

“About five or six or us got there about 11.30pm on Saturday and the bouncers said we were not allowed in because we were too big.”

The famous revolving door?

“I told them not to be ridiculous and asked to speak to the manager. He would not look at me directly but said they’d received too many complaints about fat people. He told me to ‘go and lose some weight before you come in – fat people are bad for business’.

“I was disgusted he had the nerve to say this. My friend, who is only a size 14, was not allowed in either.”

Says manager Martin Sayers:

“We got a lot of people that I’d classify as morbidly obese and we were getting complaints. I am deeply apologetic but business is not good at the minute and I was trying to protect my business.

“If this highlights the problem of obesity, then perhaps some good has come of this.

“I am overweight myself. I did not do this to hurt anyone.”

Inded not. It’s not as if he fell on anyone. In acase, fat people are loads fun, big characters, who cannot help but laugh…
