(Scroll down for video) A teenager was left humiliated when a mother fat-shamed her in front of customers at an ice cream parlor.

19-year-old Justine Elwood of Utah, was working her shift at Cold Stone Creamery in Layton, when a woman came in with her children.

The children couldn’t decide what flavor ice cream they wanted so Elwood gave them some to taste.

After tasting a few different flavors, the mother turned to her young children and said: “If you eat too much ice cream, you’ll look like her,” while pointing at Elwood.

To make matters worse, the next day, the woman took to Yelp, where she called Elwood “disgustingly obese.”

The woman, who identified herself as Elane S., wrote: “Coldstone has been one of our favorite places to go as a family and enjoy quality ice cream, specifically the Layton location.

“Unfortunately, I have had a specifically unsatisfying experience the last few times we have come into the store.

“One of their female employees Jessie? Jennifer? J something, is disgustingly obese, and each time we come in, although she does her job and is very polite, instantly makes my appetite disappear.”

Elwood’s mother was furious over the woman’s actions. She took to Facebook to write about the experience and she asked people to help them identify Elane S., so that they can stop the bullying.

Meanwhile, people on social media have shown their support for the teen, and some customers came into the store and brought roses, balloons and notes of encouragement for Elwood during her shift.
