AKRON, Ohio -- An Ohio woman paid to join a tanning salon only to be told she was too fat to tan.

When the stand-up booth was broken, the salon staff worried Kelly McGrevey might break the tanning bed.

The salon refused to refund McGrevey her $70 membership, so she went to the media.

It turns out the public pressure worked.

After an outpouring support for the woman on social media, the salon agreed to refund her money.

Another salon is letting her now tan for free.
