Woman Kicked Off Her Flight For Wearing The Shorts (Photos)

Burlesque dancer Maggie McMuffin was recently slut-shamed while boarding a JetBlue flight in Boston for wearing shorts that staff deemed were too short.

McMuffin was told “she was dressed inappropriately” and couldn’t board the flight until she covered up even though the Seattle woman took the same airline to get from New York to Boston.

McMuffin said she had to have a friend go to another terminal to buy her a pair of XL sleep shorts to please the airline’s Boston employees.

JetBlue had apologized to McMuffin for the incident and even refunded the cost of her clothing and offered her a credit for her flight, however the pilot did not apologize and JetBlue gave “no explanation for their behavior,” MailOnline reports.

“I asked for a monetary refund since I don't want to fly with them again and was told I could let someone else use my credit,” McMuffin said. “They let me on my original flight but only because I went and purchased new shorts.”

JetBlue’s policy states that they can remove individuals “whose clothing is lewd, obscene, or patently offensive,” however JetBlue insists that this isn’t what occurred in McMuffin’s case.

“The gate and onboard crew discussed the customer’s clothing and determined that the burlesque shorts may offend other families on the flight,” an airline spokesperson told MailOnline. “While the customer was not denied boarding, the crewmembers politely asked if she could change. The customer agreed and continued on the flight without interruption.”
