Plus-Size Vlogger Wasn’t Allowed To Try On A Sweater At Walmart--Now, She’s Fighting Back
February 4, 2016
Plus-size vlogger, Shiann Friesen, is standing up for herself after a Walmart employee wouldn’t let her try on a sweater because she would “stretch it” out too much. Friesen even caught the altercation on camera.
In the video posted to her YouTube channel, Friesen attempts to try on a sweater when an employee grabs the clothes from her hands saying that she can’t try it on. The employee said, “Just don’t try to push it.” When Friesen said she didn’t understand, the employee said, “Just don’t try to put on something that’s obviously not going to fit. That’s all I’m asking.”
Friesen has reached out to Walmart and she says they have since apologized. “Every single person from the Walmart team I talked to has been extremely sorry and extremely shocked that this even happened at one of their stores,” she says.
