We’ve all heard the saying “never judge a book by its cover” but the old adage can be hard to follow.

In the PSA below, a “goth” girl with green hair is forced to bear the brunt of judgment from other people. As she walks down the street to her waitressing job, passersby and restaurant patrons give her scalding looks and sidelong glances. It’s obvious they disapprove of her appearance and they make no effort to hide their disgust.
