(Newser) – We’re just gonna present this one without comment: An Oregon woman is consulting her lawyer and alerting the media after being told to cover up while shopping at her local Walmart. Sandy McMillin, a bald, tattooed, disabled, 51-year-old ex-motorcycle racer, was looking through the clothing department wearing only a string bikini and a pair of “hot pants” shorts when a Walmart employee told her to put a shirt on or leave, she tells the Register-Guard. Ironically, she had bought the bikini at the same Walmart.

McMillin and her sister say the employee told them her current state of semi-dress violated state food handler regulations, to which a baffled McMillin replied, “I’m not selling food.” Walmart now says she was asked to cover up because other customers complained. But McMillin thinks she knows the real reason: “Because I’m disabled,” she says. (McMillin walks with a cane thanks to various motorcycle injuries.) Plus “I’m not a skinny, mini miss thing, and I have that middle-age spread.” For video, check out KVAL News.

If no one else at that Walmart is allowed in wearing a bikini (or no shirt if they are a guy) - then she has a case for discrimination but NOT because she is disabled. Stupid on top of stupid.

If I saw that on the street, I'd ask it to put a shirt on too, in fact I'd request a large hessian sack straight over its head. And you can call me...............Mr Joshua
