After Salon Turned Woman Away, An Inspiring Walmart Employee With a Knack For Nails Made Her Day

A Walmart employee is the talk of the town after a kindhearted gesture towards a woman with a disability went viral online. If you need a reminder that there is some good in the world, this story is for you!

Turned Away At The Door

Angela Peters was shopping at her local Walmart in Burton, Michigan, when she noticed a nail salon, Da-Vi Nails, inside the store. She decided to stop in for a quick manicure. However, she was ultimately refused service, and the reason why is unbelievable.

Angela has cerebral palsy, which causes involuntary tremors throughout a person’s body. A nail technician at the salon reportedly refused to take care of her because “she moved too much,” according to bystander Tasia Smith. However, an employee in the Walmart would soon come to brighten up Angela’s day with a surprise act.

A Surprising Act of Kindness

Ebony Harris found out about Angela’s unfortunate encounter and decided to do something about it. Ebony went through the beauty aisles and found nail products to give Angela a manicure herself! She bought nail polish, nail polish remover, and other supplies to give Angela the manicure she deserved.

Turns out that Ebony knew Angela because Angela often shops at that Walmart. Ebony didn’t want one of her favorite customers to go home unhappy. “I just wanted to make her day special. I didn’t really want her day to be ruined. That’s why I did it,” Ebony shared in an interview. “And plus she’s a sweetie.” Angela was not only happy about Ebony’s kindness; she was also impressed with the Walmart employee’s great work on her nails.

Taking A Stand

Tasia, who works at a Subway in the Walmart, captured the wonderful moment between these two on camera. The kind act quickly went viral on social media. Many praised Ebony for her small but moving act, while speaking out against the nail salon for alleged discrimination.

However, both Ebony and Angela are determined to keep things positive. “We’re not trying to bash the nail salon. We’re not trying to make them lose customers, make them look bad,” Ebony said. “But maybe, spread awareness that no matter the person, who they are, what color they are, disability, whatever, they’re people too. She’s a girly girl. She’s just like you, me, Tasia, my daughter, anybody. She wants to look pretty, you know, and so why can’t she?” Very well said!
