Jordan Ramos, a 21-year-old University of Iowa student said she went to Union Bar in Iowa City, Iowa with her friends on March 3. She said she tried to get onto a platform where several of her friends were dancing, but was stopped by the bouncer, who said they were at capacity.
Ramos said she waited until a few girls left, and again tried to go up. She was stopped again, which she said prompted her to ask, "What is the difference between the other girls up there and myself?"
"There was only one difference: I am a plus-sized individual. The bouncer said 'Look, you will never get up on this platform. Go back to the dance floor where you belong,'" Ramos told ABC News.
Ramos said a friend of hers tried to talk to the manager, but he refused to talk to her. The manager told them to leave, Ramos said. She sent the manager an email, which she says was never answered.
A social work professor at the University of Iowa told Ramos to return to the bar.
