Jersey nightclub bans overweight women

July 30, 2008

Havana’s, a popular nightclub on the New Jersey shoreline (oh crap, where is this going?), decided to not allow some big girls in their club last week in his club. Club manager Martin Sayers said he’d had numerous complaints from other customers about the number of overweight women frequenting his club. So, he decided to ban them, but allowed overweight men to come into the club.

Naturally, this pissed a few people off, so their natural reaction was to form a Facebook group, “Stop Havana Club Discrimination.” They’re planning a protest this Friday……

Me personally, if I was refused entry, I probably wouldn’t want to go back there. I certainly wouldn’t be marching to be allowed back in…….Like it or not, it’s a private club, so the management can refuse entry to pretty much anyone they want. If it’s a real problem, a smart entrepreneur would open up a club catering to bigger ladies…..

You know what, screw that ladies. Watch this video below taken at Neptunes in Long Island. You’re doing yourself a favor by not going.

Ok, ok, I know, they’re not in Jersey, so I’m sure it’s totally different there. Let’s ask these gentleman in the next clip.  NSFW language.

New Miss London, a size 12 model, was repeatedly turned away from modeling agencies for being “too big.”

“I have tried to get into modelling,” she said. “But I have been turned away as I’m apparently too big to be a regular model. I’ve been told I’m too fat and I need to lose weight. One agent told me I would have to work hard to achieve the gaunt look he was after.

For perspective, the model below Alice Burdeu is a size 2 (U.S.), and is “big” compared to the size 0’s that have been walking catwalks around the world for the last several years.
