Hooters Waitress Says She Has Been Put on Weight Probation

ROSEVILLE, Mich. -- A 132-pound server with the Hooters restaurant chain claims she's been put on probation because of her weight.

Twenty-year-old Cassie Smith told WJBK-TV that she got a generally glowing review at the Roseville restaurant. But the 5-foot, 8-inch woman said an evaluation related to her uniform indicated that she needed to drop some weight.

Smith says she was horrified, heartbroken and humiliated.

Atlanta-based Hooters of America Inc. denies the claim. It said in a statement Tuesday that Hooters doesn't impose a weight requirement and "no employee in Michigan has been counseled about their weight."

The restaurant chain that featuring waitresses clad in tank tops and tight shorts says its standards are legal and fair.
