(Scroll down for video) A woman vowed never to go back to a restaurant after she was “body shamed” by a waitress.

Charisha Gobin of Washington, was wearing a crop top t-shirt with the word “weirdo” written on it when she took her family to eat at Buzz Inn Steakhouse in Marysville.

Gobin, who is pregnant with twins, said that as she waited to be served, a waitress told her to cover up or leave. The waitress explained that the mother was violating the health code by exposing her pregnant belly.

The waitress claimed that the restaurant has a “no shoes, no shirt, no service” policy, and anyone not covered properly is ordered to do so for health reasons.

Gobin decide to leave the restaurant rather than making a scene. She went to another restaurant and vowed never to return to Buzz Inn Steakhouse.

In a statement, the company said: “We sincerely apologize for the misunderstanding and will speak with all staff as to how to not overly enforce a rule that is intended to make all guests feel comfortable.”

They added that the server in question has been with the company for almost 20 years and she is a great employee.

Gobin posted the photo of herself wearing the crop top to social media with the caption: “I was just denied service at the Buzz Inn on State Avenue in Marysville, for my outfit. I’m violating the health code.”

The post went viral and the seven-and-a-half months pregnant mother received a lot of support and encouragement.
