American Airlines issued an apology after a woman wearing a romper said she was removed from the plane and told she should cover herself with a blanket.

Tisha Rowe, 37, tweeted a photo of herself in the strapless romper she said she was wearing on the June 30 flight — an image that quickly went viral on social media. She was eventually allowed to return to the flight and traveled with her son from Jamaica to Miami.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Here is what i was wearing when @AmericanAir asked me to deplane for a talk. At which point I was asked  to ‘cover up,’” she tweeted. “When defending my outfit I was threatened with not getting back on the flight unless I walked down the aisle wrapped in a blanket.”

American Airlines reportedly apologized to Rowe and gave her a full refund for the flight.

    I agree with her earlier comments stating had she been a size 2, there wouldn’t have been an issue. Fat women should think twice about showing soooooo much skin. It’s unsightly like fatties who stretch yoga pants seam to seam. You can’t un ring the bell

    She wasn’t racially profiled! She was just in what seems inappropriate attire to some. Of course to others it’s ok. Laughable!! You would think a “Dr” would care to dress a little nicer!!

    I am so sick of black people pulling the race card to defend their poor decisions or behavior. All it would take is one deviant to pull her top down and expose her and therefore I understand the airports decision. I am white and I like her outfit but she should have given more thought to who she would or might be sitting next to on the flight. These days rape and deviant behaviors is a number one crime and with illegals from all over the world being flown around you would think she would wear something more appropriate on the flight. She has plenty of time to wear a romper after she gets off the flight.

    Wear something more appropriate for a flight. Don’t show everything you’ve got. Men can’t handle it. You’re putting yourself in danger.

    Needs to learn etiquette: This is poolside beach wear, which is only appropriate on her own private plane trip. Doesn’t’t even wear a sun suit cover over. Unsuitable to the occasion.

    I think the fight rule should be. If you can ware it to Walmart, you can ware it on an airplane flight. If we have to endure it in a check out line then those folks can suffer with it on an airplane. “New Rules”

    James, have you see some of the things people wear to Walmart! It’s frightening!! 😳 But I also think she should dress more professionally when flying! If she’s a real “Dr,” she should dress like one, not like a 15 year old who’s a size 2!!! Js

    She was asked to cover up her fat ass. Nothing to do with the color of her skin.

    NO CLASS AT ALL. Not at All unusual these days. It;s Sad that girls, women, (my husband said don’t call them Ladies,cause they’re NOT) think it’s ok to dress sleezy. TAKE US BACK TO FASHION OF THE 50’s. It’s Much sexier, more comfortable and more attractive to cover up, and let your figure shine through(If you Have one). People are just NASTY!
