One woman is now claiming that a manager asks the removal of her out of a Golden Corral restaurant because of her outfit. Some restaurants have dress codes, but Golden Corral seems like one of the many who don’t. Sueretta Emke, a 25-year-old, says that the Golden Corral in Erie, Pennsylvania wrongfully tells her to leave because of what she was wearing.

Sueretta drives an hour to this Golden Corral that features an all-you-can-eat buffet with her husband and son. It is to celebrate her son’s birthday with his friends. When she went to get food, Sueretta says a manager tells her she is dressed “too provocatively” and has to leave.

What the Golden Corral manager had to say

Hey guys so….. This picture was taken Sunday night right after I was kicked out of golden corral in Erie PA. (The one…

Sueretta took to Facebook to explain what happened. “I explained that we drove an hour there… I didn’t just have clothes I could change into but he didn’t care. He never would tell me exactly what I was showing too much of when I asked point blank what I was showing too much of. He would respond that it wasn’t his place to say.”

Additionally, she says that the manager says he receives a complaint about her outfit, which is what prompts him to ask her to change or leave.

Sueretta spoke to NBC News about the situation. Allegedly, when she asks the manager if they have a dress code, he says no, “but it’s a family restaurant so if someone complains, we step in.” She then follows up with “So what if I am in there and if I have a problem with someone’s religious attire, would you make them leave?”

The manager apparently has no response to that. Sueretta apparently went to the franchise owner afterward to complain about what happened, but he defends the decision made by the location’s manager.

A Golden Corral executive reaches out

Golden Corral did not issue a comment when asked by NBC News. Sueretta stated that she did see other customers in the restaurant with more revealing clothing than her. She believes they discriminate against her for her size. “I really do believe something was said to me because I’m not thin, so it’s not considered sexy,” she said.

Thankfully, Sueretta was able to update everyone that a Golden Corral franchise business consultant reached out. They went on to deeply apologize for what happened. She explains in a Facebook comment on the original post.

In the letter from the Golden Corral consultant, they say, “Please be assured that the Franchise and I are looking into your concerns and taking whatever corrective action is appropriate.”

Sueretta explains that in the top she was wearing at Golden Corral, that it was her first crop top ever. She has become confident enough to wear one in public despite her size and the beauty standards of today. After what she experiences, she says, “I really felt cute in it and now I never want to wear that shirt again.”

This wouldn’t be the first time someone got kicked out of a place for a stupid reason.

’70s Kids Commercial Star Says ‘My 26-Year-Old Model Girlfriend Is Out Of My League’

Do you remember the name, Mason Reese? He was huge in the 1970s for being the most popular commercial kid of that time period. He is a former child actor and appeared in several commercials that you might remember, from Underwood Deviled Ham to Post Raisin Bran, and Dunkin’ Donuts.

Now, the 54-year-old, who is only 4ft 10in tall, is dating a 26-year-old adult webcam model named Sarah Russi. Many claim that he is her sugar daddy but the two continue to say that money has nothing to do with their relationship. They also say that because of the obvious height difference, they often get stares when they go out in public. They say they’re used to stares now.

The two explain that their relationship is mainly based around common interests, mutual respect, and a similar sense of humor. “Truth of the matter is I don’t see myself as being in her league, so when I look at a beautiful young 26-years-old adult model I don’t think, ‘oh she is gonna be in love with me’,” Mason says.

“When she first expressed interest in actually being in a relationship with me I think I was just shocked as anybody,” he explains, “A lot of people have come out and been like, ‘really you are with that dude, like why? Is it for the money? Is it because he is your sugar daddy?’”

Sarah has allegedly worked as a sugar baby before, but she says that her relationship with Mason has nothing to do with money. “The idea of being a sugar baby is it can be like fun sometimes, like getting paid $300 for dinners, but ever since I started talking to Mason I just decided that I don’t want that anymore. I feel like I’m happy to be in a relationship with him,” she says.

Mason has also confirmed that she’s never asked him for a single penny. “I am really happy with Mason. I don’t need to be with him for his money,” says Sarah.

The two allegedly met at a horror film convention and they just hit it off right away. “When you meet somebody and you end up talking for three hours effortlessly – no pauses, no breaks, no uncomfortable moments of real silence – that’s kind of unusual and I think she felt that way as well,” Mason explains.

He says that not only are they lovers, but they are also great friends. They enjoy each other’s company more than anything. Good for them!

Do you remember Mason Reese in the ’70s kids commercials?

Meet Mason and Sarah, together in action! I honestly cannot believe how well they get along and connect with each other, despite the age difference.

Even if this couple is unconventional, we hope the best for them!

Take a look at these ten other Hollywood couples that have lasted for ages! We hope that they stay together forever.

It has sadly been reported that New Orleans music icon and six-time Grammy Award winner Dr. John passed away from a heart attack on June 6th, 2019. He was 77 years old. His family confirmed his death in a statement on his official Twitter account. “He created a unique blend of music which carried his home town, New Orleans, at its heart, as it was always in his heart,” the statement says.

“The family thanks all who have shared his unique musical journey, and requests privacy at this time. Memorial arrangements will be announced in due course.”

— Dr. John (@akadrjohn) June 6, 2019

Dr. John was born on November 20th, 1941 in New Orleans, LA. He grew up in the city’s Third Ward, where he discovered jazz artists in his father’s record shop. He also learned minstrel tunes from extended family members. While he had no formal musical education, he sure did learn a lot from his access to recording studios and his father’s connections to the local music scene.

By the time he was a teenager, Dr. John became an active musician. He actually began as a guitarist in local Big Easy acts. By 1960, though, he suffered a gunshot wound during a performance and would be confined to just playing the piano.

Once Dr. John moved to Los Angeles, his career really took off. He would join Wrecking Crew, record with The Rolling Stones, Sonny & Cher, and more, perform with The Band, and many more amazing opportunities.

Throughout the course of his career, he had over 20 releases. This includes essential Dr. John tunes such as the 1968 album Gris-Gris, and his 1973 hit single “Right Place Wrong Time.” The man had become hugely influential and left quite the mark on the entertainment industry.

Dr. John has won six Grammy Awards, including Best Jazz Vocal Performance and Best Blues Album. He is also an inductee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011 and the recipient of an honorary doctorate of fine arts from New Orleans’ own Tulane University in 2013.

His artistry and musical influence will never be forgotten. May he rest in peace.

This sums it up. Me chillin. And then her with 3 monkeys climbing all over her. She does it day in and day out with that love for them that only a mother can understand, but she also does it out of a love for me because she knows that so many times my work takes me away from home. How can I ever repay her for that?! I have a lifetime to try. She’s the half that makes me whole. Happy Mother’s Day @amberemilysmith!

A post shared by Granger Smith (@grangersmith) on May 12, 2019 at 10:21am PDT

In the post, Granger specifies that those who wish to donate in memoriam of River’s life, they may do so by donating to Dell Children’s Medical Center in River’s name.

Granger’s wife and mother of their child posts something similar. She says,  “Nothing can prepare a mother to deliver this kind of news.” Their 3-year-old son had just turned three on May 16th. In a birthday collage post, mother Amber Smith, writes, “Someone is 3 today! Happy birthday to our fearless, tractor and Lightening McQueen loving, red-headed, daredevil! He keeps us laughing, definitely keeps me on my toes, gives the best hugs and is as sweet as honey! We love our little Riv.”
