A hot Turkish fitness model named Deniz Saypinar was getting on a flight at DFW for Miami when an American Airlines flight attendant told her she couldn’t get on because of her outfit.
Saypinar posted an image of her outfit on social media, writing “you will never believe what happened to me at Texas Airport. I moved from Islamic country because how they treat women as a fkn second or third even no class and now this is happening.”
Shame on American Airlines. Don’t see anything wrong with her outfit and you can bet that a majority of people agree.
But it’s their business and they set the policy.
The airlines told the New York Post, “all customers must dress appropriately and offensive clothing isn’t permitted onboard our flights.”
“...was the first woman in Turkey to receive International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness professional status, and she placed first in the 2020 National Physique Committee bikini championship.
According to the Daily Mail, Saypinar claimed flight crew said her clothing disturbed other families at the airport. Saypinar included an image of the outfit — a brown tank top, denim shorts and a white jacket tied around her waist — that got her removed from the flight.
“I don’t deserve to be treated like the worst person in the world for wearing denim shorts,” she said. “What separates us from animals if humans can’t control even their most primitive impulses.”
This isn’t the first time in recent years that American Airlines made headlines for threatening to remove passengers over clothing concerns.
In April, a two-time cancer survivor flying from Los Angeles to Charlotte was nearly banned from a flight because of a sweatshirt that contained an expletive on it, View from the Wing reported.
In 2019, a Houston doctor was told to cover up her romper on her trip home from Jamaica with her son in an incident the woman said was racist and misogynistic. After the woman, named Tisha Rowe, posted about being nearly kicked off the flight for her outfit, the airline publicly apologized and said it fully refunded her and her son’s travel.
The experiences of both Rowe and Saypinar sparked outrage online, drawing comments of support on their respective posts.”
