Doctor told to cover up for wearing this

American Airlines has apologised after allegedly telling a female passenger to wrap herself in a blanket to veil her outfit. "My shorts covered EVERYTHING but apparently was too distracting to enter the plane", family medicine specialist Tisha Rowe tweeted after the June 30 incident.

She was forced to get off the plane with her eight-year-old son, and was only allowed back on with an airline blanket draped over her body.

Dr. Tisha Rowe, of Houston, tweeted that the incident, which occurred in June, left her feeling "disgusted" and "humiliated".

A United States airliner has received a torrent of condemnation after a black woman accused American Airlines of racism and sexualization of body form after she was taken off her flight by staff and told she would not be allowed to re-board unless she covered up her 'assets' because her dress outfit was deemed inappropriate. The female flight attendant then told her, "You can not get on the plane dressed like that". It's not inappropriate. It's not bad, you know?

"I turned, and I looked at my backside, and I kind of gave myself that, you know, girl check". But since she already paid for the flight, she acquiesced to the flight attendant's mandate to cover herself so that she would not forfeit her seat.


Rowe believes there was nothing inappropriate about her outfit and that she was the victim of hypersexualization of Black women's bodies.

"So #AmericanAirlines just told me I couldn't board the flight without putting a jacket over my assets". Her son then covered his face with the blanket.

"We had been eager about Dr Rowe's feedback, and reached out to her and our crew on the Kingston airport to salvage extra data about what took place", a spokeswoman said in a assertion to U.S. media.

On Tuesday the airline mentioned they'd apologised to Dr Rowe and her son and refunded their commute.

American Airlines isn't the only company to come under fire for its dress code, earlier this year a British woman says she was told to cover up her "inappropriate" outfit that was "causing offence" after she attempted to board a Thomas Cook plane wearing loose orange pants and a black bralet.


"There was no explanation why I was called off the plane", Rowe said.

"Dress appropriately; bare feet or offensive clothing aren't allowed".

This is an article about two giant American companies - American Airlines and GM - that apparently have nearly the exact same two-word dress code.

'Unfortunately, we've been unable to reach Dr. Rowe or leave a message at the number provided.

"We are proud to support prospects of all backgrounds and are committed to providing a definite, protected run abilities for each person who flies with us". In October 2017, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People issued a travel warning to African American passengers flying the airline but lifted it in July 2018, according to Dallas News.
