Walmart employee steps in after nail salon turns away customer with cerebral palsy


A woman who works as a cashier at Walmart stepped in to pamper a woman with cerebral palsy after the store’s nail salon turned her away for a manicure.

According to a Facebook post by Tasia Smith, the in-store “Da Vi nails” denied the Angela Peters service because “she moves too much.”

Walmart employee Ebony Harris then went and purchased nail polish and went to the nearby Subway to give Peters an impromptu nail painting.

“We’re not trying to bash the nail salon. We’re not trying to make them lose customers, make them look bad,” Harris said to ABC 11. “But maybe spread awareness that no matter the person, who they are, what color they are, disability, whatever, they’re people too. She’s a girly girl. She’s just like you, me, Tasia, my daughter, anybody. She wants to look pretty, you know, and so why can’t she?”
