Teenage Girl Asked To Leave Rue 21 Store Because Of Her Weight

Another store is caught in the crossfire after they asked a young girl to leave because she was “too big” to be shopping at their store. 

Shelby Buster, a teenage girl from Oregon, believes that she was treated with disrespect when she was asked to leave her local Rue 21 because she was “too big.” Shelby and her mother are still awaiting a response from the store about the incident.

Rue 21 is currently investigating what happened, and says that they do not discriminate. They offered this message on their Facebook page:

At rue21 we value diversity and welcome all customers in our stores. We intensely train our associates on our anti-discrimination policies, and we offer a variety of apparel trends and sizes, as well as accessories, footwear, and fragrances in our 966 stores nationwide. We are currently investigating the claims of Ms. Buster, including conducting interviews with store associates and other witnesses who were present at the time of alleged incident. The alleged behavior, if true, would be absolutely unacceptable and contrary to company policy. We deeply regret any misunderstanding that may have occurred.
