Lady Denied Entrance Into A Restaurant Because Of Her 'Local' Hairstyle

Oluwagbeminiyi  Osidipe took to Instagram to narrate the harsh treatment she got from a restaurant because of her hairstyle. She said she wasn't allowed  into the restaurant because of her hair while ladies wearing weavons were allowed in. Read what she wrote below...
"About a weekago weekago! I got denied access into "Butholes Restaurant" because my hair was like this! .
Guy at the door deemed it too "local" but proceeded to allow 2 weave wearing ladies and 2 other men walk in, while moving me aside with his giant forearm. .
I've been through the motions this week... from embarrassment, to anger, to unworthiness to severe self consciousness to complete defiance in changing my hairstyle. .
I say it time and time again, this "self love" thing is a chore, a tiring one. .
Found myself wanting to cover my "glory". Wore a hat throughout COPA even though I was in the shade for the fear that one security official will impede me from doing my job. .
I wanted a wig for fun the week before the event; but last week, I started to really dream about owning one till I found out the price (Jesos is lord) and decided; self love is harder but cheaper. .
It's important for me to state, that my hair is natural not because I am a naturalista, but because I love food!

What has food got to do with it? Well when you eat as much as I do, you have the tendency to be obese, when you have the tendency to be obese, you need to work out. When you work out you sweat and I need access to my scalp always. And more importantly, I must eat.
.
That is the reason why I went to "butholes" in the first place. Food.
I shouldn't be judged, no one, should be judged because they want to eat.....
Many people have many takes on this. Feminist, Patriotic, Indigenous, black girl magic etc .
My take is Human, that people, all people must be treated with dignity and respect no matter who they are
