Muzique nightclub in Montreal is feeling the heat after posting an invitation on its Facebook page that included the message "NO FAT GIRLS ALLOWED!!!!!!!!!!"
Stefano Apostolakos, a Montreal club promoter, told the Gazette: "Everybody knows. (Clubs) are selective," and "(Discrimination) comes with the right to refuse entrance." He remarked, "They'll never tell you you can't come in because of your looks. But at the end of the day, that's what it comes down to, usually. It's the sad truth."
I know this took place in Montreal, but it happens in the U.S. as well. Shouldn't this type of thing be highlighted in our descrimination laws? Or should clubowners be able to pick and choose their clientel?

I am not saying I agree with the practice (I don't), but they should be able to run their business the way they want. Hopefully they will lose patronage because of their condescension. How do you force a business to allow a larger client entry? Now, that said, I am not skinny and I don't go clubbing where you have to stand in line to get in and be picked like you just won the lotto. I find the whole practice of waiting to be picked very juvenile.
