A woman has shared how she was ‘shamed’ on a flight after her outfit was deemed ‘inappropriate’ and ‘lewd’.
When Maggi Thorne, 42, flew with Southwest Airlines from Orlando to Nashville she had no idea her outfit would provoke such a reaction.
Maggi, known for being an American Ninja Warrior contestant, said a flight attendant approached her not long after she took her seat
She wrote on X (formerly Twitter): ‘[Southwest Airlines] attendant just shamed me in front of passengers saying my attire wasn’t appropriate’.
Maggi had on a black cropped top with high waisted tracksuit bottoms – it was hardly scandalous. But she claims she was asked to cover up.
Maggi said: ‘A tank top and high-waisted pants. Flight 1039. Is this really happening in 2023? The passengers around me were stunned as she shamed me for all to hear.’
Of course, people on social media had opinions.
One person commented: ‘Put some clothes on. It’s a plane not a gym. The attire should fit the event.’
Thankfully, most agreed with Maggi – with one person adding: ‘That’s absurd – proud of you for standing your ground Mag!’
Maggi reportedly refused to put on more clothes, and spoke to another flight attendant.
‘When I told her I wasn’t okay, I don’t think she knew what to do,’ she said.
‘I’m not a confrontational person, but what happened isn’t okay and someone should say something about it.’
Southwest Airlines has since apologised to Maggi, and a complaint has been made on her behalf.
Maggi told Insider she was shocked to hear her basic outfit was deemed ‘lewd, obscene, or patently offensive’, according to the airlines guidelines.
Metro.co.uk has reached out to Southwest Airlines for further comment and we will update this if they respond.
