Woman forced to wear pilot shirt after plane outfit deemed ‘offensive’

After being removed from a flight, a woman was forced to wear a pilot’s T-shirt because her cleavage was deemed “lewd, obscene and offensive”.

Because of her clothes, Kayla Eubanks said she was stopped at the gate when she attempted to board a flight on Tuesday.

Via a series of tweets that included video conversations with airline workers and images of the clothing in question, she reported the incident.

“I really wanna know why @SouthwestAir is policing my clothes like this,” Ms Eubanks first tweeted about the incident.

“How will my shirt impact my flight, for myself, the other passengers or even the pilot? Y’all have a dress code for CUSTOMERS who pay to get on a plane? It’s the constant policing of women’s bodies for me.”

“I kid y’all not, from the moment I stepped into my departing airport, to the duration of the flight and even after I landed, I was harassed,” Ms Eubanks tweeted.

“Not by passengers, but by Southwest employees. Half of the employees were complimenting me & the other half was asking where my shirt was.”


Do you think the airline had the right to refuse her flight?
