导读:美国俄勒冈尤金市一位51岁的妇女Sandy McMillin身穿比基尼,想进入当地一家沃尔玛超市购物,却被超市一名工作人员请出超市,理由是其违反了卫生条例。据悉,由于当天温度达到32摄氏度以上,为了凉快Sandy穿着比基尼想去沃尔玛买点诸如咖啡、薯片和酸奶油之类商品,而这件比基尼也是在沃尔玛超市买的,结果却被请出超市,Sandy感到很震惊也很尴尬,她说,如果你不喜欢别人的穿着,可以不看。



A woman claims she was told to leave a Wal-Mart store because she was wearing a bikini top.

Sandy McMillin says she was looking round a Wal-Mart in Eugene, Oregon when a staff member confronted her and claimed she may be violating health regulations.

Temperatures had hit 90c and Ms McMillin, who had popped in to buy some sour cream, chips and coffee creamer, was wearing the tiny turquoise garment to keep cool.

She had actually bought the $10 bikini top from the same Wal-Mart store.

‘I was horrified,’ the 51-year-old told KVAL News. ‘It’s wrong. If you don't like the way someone looks, don’t look at them.

‘I am embarrassed. I hadn't done anything obnoxious or outlandish.’

Ms McMillin, who walks with a cane after sustaining injuries in motorcycle crashes, is now planning to sue for discrimination and her attorney suggested she may have been unfairly treated because she is disabled.

But a spokeswoman for the Arkansas-based retail giant disputed Ms McMillin’s version of events, saying that she was ‘verbally abusive’ to other shoppers after they complained about her appearance.

The spokeswoman said Ms McMillin was never asked to leave but conceded: ‘We can understand her frustration. It was not our intent to offend the customer, and we have apologised to her.’

Calls to release the in-store surveillance video to clear up the story have been rebuffed by Wal-Mart, which said it only gives CCTV footage to police for investigations.

A life-long shopper at the chain, Ms McMillin has vowed never to buy from there again.

In an interview with KVAL News, she said her shaven head was inspired by Sinead O’Connor after being involved in a horrific motorcycle crash.

‘I spent three and a half months in a coma,’ she said of the accident which left her with severe head injuries. ‘So I said, Sinead O'Connor had the right idea back in 1990.’

In 2009, three men set up the website www.peopleofwalmart.com to highlight the unique nature of some of the store's shoppers, including their bizarre dress sense.

The site features pictures of absurdly dressed customers taken by shoppers across the U.S.
