Post about local spa gets huge response
PORTAGE, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – Newschannel 3 has been tracking a developing story out of Portage that has gotten the attention of the world wide web.
It all started when a woman named Vanessa Hunt wrote a post on Facebook, upset about her experience at MSpa, a salon in Portage.
She claims the owner yelled at a woman because that woman’s toddler, who has autism, was having a fit while getting a haircut.
The post went viral.
In the past 48 hours, it has been shared more than 25,000 times, including nearly 40 posts on our WWMT Facebook page.
Someone also created a “Boycott MSpa” page on Facebook Monday night.
That page has already gained more than 5,000 likes.
Many of the comments on the page are extremely long, with people speaking out on both sides of the issue.
In a later posting, Hunt herself said she couldn't believe the response online.
Newschannel 3 called the salon to try and get the owner's side of the story, but it was closed Monday.
We are continuing to look into this controversial internet firestorm and will pass along any updates as soon as we get them.
