26-year-old singer Yvette Harvie-Salter from New Zealand was upset when she was told that other bathers from a public swimming pool in Auckland were offended by her “inappropriate” bikini. On Facebook, the woman asked the opinion of others and she mainly received support.
Yvette Harvie-Salter has spent the last two years up to three times a week at the spa at Albany Stadium in Auckland. She was back on Saturday with her partner. They both went to the sauna and spa area that is only accessible to adults. Suddenly the supervising manager tapped her on the shoulder and told her that she wanted to talk to her privately.
She made it clear to Yvette Harvie-Salter that there were complaints about her outfit, a bikini that the New Zealand singer had bought from Glassons in the shopping center opposite the swimming pool. The rescuer asked her if she had any other bikinis at home. “It’s not against the rules, but other moms have complained,” was the argument. And if Harvie-Salter wanted to keep walking around in the bikini in question, she would just have to wrap a towel around her body.
Yvette Harvie-Salter didn’t know what she was hearing and thought it was disgusting. On top of that, she was laughed at when she reclaimed her money. “They have certainly lost a good customer here,” she responded afterward on Facebook. She talked about body shaming and felt very hurt.
Rob McGee, the head of the Auckland swimming pool politician, expressed his disappointment about how Harvie-Salter was dealt with and apologized. According to McGee, meanwhile, the manager Harvie-Salter had spoken about her swimming outfit was also aware of her mistake. “The customer was never asked to leave, but we understand that she did,” it still sounded. He promised to personally contact Harvie-Salter. That has not happened to date, she said on Facebook.
