Walla-born appearance activist and author Carly Findlay has taken to social media to share her experience of discrimination at the hands of a taxi company.
Ms Findlay said a birthday dinner was spoiled after a taxi driver said he didn't want her in his car "as he'd have to clean it".
The former Murray High student said the driver asked what "happened to her face" and then told her husband that he didn't want her in the car.

"This behaviour spoils lovely nights," she said.
"It means I can never feel safe asking taxis for lifts. It makes me feel othered and dirty. It makes me feel unheard. It is time consuming logging complaints."
Ms Findlay lives with a rare skin condition and often shares her experiences of discrimination and insensitivity online.
Earlier this year, the former Walla resident shared that she was yelled at, at Killing Heidi, and had another encounter with a taxi driver.
She said both experiences had left her "pretty shaken".
In February, Ms Findley launched her book Say Hello, in which she wrote "I can't think of a day outside of the house when I haven't been stared at, intruded upon or abused because of my appearance."
