This story seems to crazy to be true, but then we remembered everything else that’s happened recently and honestly this is just crazy enough to be real.
After boarding a flight with Spirit Airlines from New Orleans to Fort Lauderdale, a South Florida woman was asked to leave because her outfit was considered “too revealing” by the flight crew who said her “bosom was too exposed.” See her outfit in the picture below.
According to the ABC news affiliate in Fort Lauderdale, another woman was escorted off the plan after coming to the buxom passenger’s defense. Donna Prieto told ABC News that her daughter was “humiliated” and multiple witnesses said she was seen crying while covering herself with a large coat before being escorted off the plane.
Spirt spokesperson Paul Berry completely disagrees with the woman’s story. “Nobody was taken off a plane because of cleavage. People are taken off of planes because of their behavior,” Berry told ABC. “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,” he continued.
Cathy Supp, a grandmother and retired Fed-Ex employee, was also removed from the plane after attempting to console the buxom young lass. Supp posted her account of what happened on the flight and says Spirit airlines is putting a spin on the story claiming the woman was intoxicated to protect their reputation. Supp says that the young lady in question was not drunk and was berated multiple times by more than one flight attendant about her blouse. “She tried to pull her top up further to cover more, each time another flight attendant came with the same issue, telling her in loud and rude tones that she’ll have leave the plane if she can’t get them covered,” she said in her Facebook post. Supp was later removed from the plane after trying to stand up for the young woman.
Regardless of what has really happened, “cleavage-gate” has created backlash against Spirit Airlines, and buxom model Elle Johnson is spearheading the #FreeTheCleavage campaign.
“Guess which airline I will NEVER fly?! #SpiritAirlines should be ashamed! You know how hot it gets in the cabin? #FreeTheCleavage,” she wrote in a recent Instagram post.
Take a look at her gallery below. She’s definitely got more cleavage than Spirit can handle!
