An Ohio tanning business told a customer she couldn't use their equipment - because she was too fat.

This happened in Akron, Ohio.

Kelly McGrevey says she was shocked when the business told her to hit the road.

So she talked about the whole thing on social media - and is now getting lots of support.

"I'm not really the person to stick up for yourself anyways. That was like totally out of character for me to do that. I just want to say thank you to all my friends and my family, and all the people that I don't know that have been so supportive. All the Facebook messages that I've received, the phone calls that I've gotten."

A different tanning salon in town is reaching out to her - and giving her a free one month membership.
