Outrageous Teen Ice Cream Parlor Worker Fat-Shamed by Mom in Front of Kids?!

A customer at a Utah ice cream parlor is said to have bullied one of the store's employees about her weight.
Justine Elwood, 19, was scooping ice cream for a mother and her children at the Layton Cold Stone Creamery when, according to Elwood, the mother made a comment to her kids.
"If you continue to eat too much ice cream, you're going to look like her," the mother allegedly said.
The woman took the bullying a step further by posting a review to Yelp calling the employee "disgustingly obese."
The review has since been removed from the site, but Elwood's mother, Daphne Moore Felley, was able to capture it in a Facebook post.
"Unfortunately, it wasn't something I'm not used to. I'm kind of used to it, which is horrible. But it's just something that I've kind of dealt with throughout my life," Elwood told ABC4 Utah.
The community and people on social media have shown their support for Elwood. Customers brought her flowers, balloons and positive notes to her during her first shift back after the incident.
