A Woman Says She Was Kicked Off A Plane For Being Too Busty

Traveling is the worst.

An unidentified woman from south Florida says she was kicked off a plane because her breasts were just too intense for the flight staff. According to Local 10, the woman was flying on Spirit Airlines from New Orleans to Ft. Lauderdale when a flight attendant told her to cover up. She put on a coat, but started to try. She says she felt “humiliated,” telling Local 10, “It's not even about money. I was really embarrassed.”

Another passenger named Cathy Supp who stood up for the woman described the incident on Facebook, writing, “Spirit Airlines wrongfully ejected me from the plane after offering a tissue to a quietly sobbing young lady, who had been first accused of being drunk, then after trying to persuade her to leave on her own by threatening police intervention if she were to somehow get sick or become disruptive during the flight!

After assuring all THREE flight attendants that although she & her companion had been finishing a beer before boarding, but was not drunk & would be fine, they left her alone for a few minutes, then came back and said her bosom was too exposed!”

Unfortunately, Supp seems to be a bit racist, mentioning there were no “nuns or Muslims” on the plane to complain about the woman’s cleavage and the alleging her seats were given up to two “immigrants.” Sounds like everyone in this story kinda sucks, but Spirit Airlines sucks most of all for body-shaming a woman on their flight.

Spirit spokesman Paul Berry told Local 10, "Nobody was taken off a plane because of cleavage. People are taken off of planes because of their behavior."

Berry accused the woman of being intoxicated, adding, "The flight attendant made that decision, and as she was leaving, she said, 'By the way, you might want to cover up.' It was more of a personal statement to her.”

And...that’s okay? Even if you do feel you need to remove a passenger for their behavior, a parting shot about their looks as they’re escorted away makes you a way bigger boob than anything on that lady’s chest.
