Woman turned away from massage parlor for being too heavy

Posted: Updated:
AURORA, Colo. -

A Denver woman who visited Phoenix last month to run in the PF Chang's Rock and Roll Half Marathon got a rude welcome home from a massage parlor in Aurora, Colorado.

Laura Smith just wanted a deep rub down after completing the half-marathon.

But the massage parlor allegedly told her "Sorry - you are too fat for our table. You'll probably break it... and have to pay for it."

Laura was horrified and she broke down in tears. She says she only weights about 250 pounds.

The massage parlor clarified the story by saying they called her "large" and not fat. But they still refused to help her.
