A pregnant woman has been banned from a restaurant for showing her baby bump.
Charisha Raylee Gobin was looking forward to tucking into a tasty feast at Buzz Inn Steakhouse, but her good mood soon changed when a waitress asked her to leave the venue because she was flashing too much flesh as her swelling stomach was visible.
And the female was booted out of the eatery because her outfit did not adhere to the company policy ''no shoes, no shirt, no service''.
Charisha - who is seven months pregnant with twins - told Kiro 7: ''The waitress/bartender stopped us and said, 'I'm sorry, you can't be here in that shirt.' I said, 'Are you being serious with me right now?' And she said, 'Yep, you can't be here.'
''Just because my belly was bigger and sticking out. But had it been anyone else, I don't think there would've been any problem whatsoever. I was livid. There was no way I was going to stay there.''
The Buzz Inn Steakhouse have since apologised for the ''misunderstanding'', but have the policy in place to ensure all of their diners feel ''comfortable''.
They released a statement, which read: ''We sincerely apologize for the misunderstanding and will cover with all staff as to how to not overly enforce a rule that is intended to make all guests feel comfortable.''
