A nightclub bouncer has been dismissed for allegedly telling a teenager that "nobody in their right mind would rape a fat girl" like her, the Daily Mail has reported.
The incident reportedly occurred at the 42nd Street nightclub in Manchester, England, in the early hours of Sunday morning.
After being thrown out of the club by staff, 19-year-old student Char Bows asked the security working the nightclub door if she could go in and find her friends - expressing concern to the bouncer about her safety if she were to travel home alone.
To which, the unidentified security worker responded: "Nobody in their right mind would rape a fat girl like [you]" and suggested that she got a cab home on her own.Paying customers aren't always treated with respect. In fact, one man claims a receipt from a beer garden told the cook to spit in a Cheeseburger order:
Bows, a music business student, relayed her experience on Facebook. "Tonight in 42nd Street Nightclub I was told I was "too fat and ugly" to worry about being left to get a taxi on my own," she wrote.[[imagecaption|| Credit: Facebook/CharBows]]
"Four male bouncers forbid me from going back inside when everyone else was allowed back in. I asked one of the bouncers to help me back inside so I could find my friends, all 4 male bouncers laughed at me saying I'd be "fine in a taxi" and that "nobody in their right mind would rape a fat girl like me". I am absolutely disgusted with the way I was treated tonight and encourage everyone to boycott 42s!'"
The Manchester club has since apologized "wholeheartedly" to the nineteen-year-old and has sacked the bouncer involved.
It also posted a statement in relation to the incident on its official Facebook page:
"We are aware of an incident that happened this weekend. Having investigated it, we have found that the behaviour of a member of staff fell well below the standard we expect and this person has been dismissed. We apologise wholeheartedly to anybody that has been adversely affected by this person's behaviour."
In an update, Bows has since provided the following update on Facebook: "I have spoken to the general manager who has taken action against the bouncer in question. He will no longer be able to work at any other venue or club as security staff.
"Other staff members backed my account and there was enough evidence to prove I was telling the truth. The club will be issuing me with a written statement to confirm what action has been taken."
