- Emiliy O'Connor has taken to Twitter to share how she was almost kicked off an airplane for supposedly dressing inappropriately
- According to the 22-year-old, she was forced to cover up using her cousin's jacket before they let the issue go
- The post which has since gone viral on the internet has caused mixed reactions
As part of the basic human rights, there is a general belief that women should be allowed to dress as they like. However, there still exists the law against indecent dressing that some organisations withhold despite the liberal movement - Emily O'Connor recently experienced the brunt of this.
The 22-year-old took to Twitter to call out an airline identified as Thomas Cook, for nearly kicking her off a plane because they considered her small black bralette and mustard palazzo ensemble as indecent.
She wrote: "Flying from Bham to Tenerife, Thomas Cook told me that they were going to remove me from the flight if I didn’t “cover up” as I was “causing offence” and was “inappropriate”. They had 4 flight staff around me to get my luggage to take me off the plane."
She went on to reveal that she was insulted by a passenger who told her to put on a jacket. A staff standing nearby did nothing.
She stated that she was made to wear her cousin's jacket before they let her be.
The post sparked quite a huge number of reactions. While some people were of the opinion that she dressed indecently and should have complied to their rules rather than make a fuss about the issue, others believed she was wrongfully harassed by the airline as women should be allowed to wear what they want.
