You are naked

Deniz Saypinar is a Turkish model and fitness influencer, while she is also a bodybuilder. She is the first Turkish women with a professional status at the Internationale Federation for Bodybuilding and Fitness.  She is heading for the Miami Swim Week, an annual modeling show.

Short pants

However, American Airlines bars her from the flight to Miami. The reason: her shorts are too short. She claims that American literally told her: “You are naked and you offend other families.’ But American lacks a clear dress code.

Via Instagram, where she has 1 million followers, she writes about her experience with American Airlines. A short time later, the story is no longer available. But the British newspaper The Independent picks it up timely and writes about her adventure. She says that American Airlines mistreated her by denying her boarding when she was trying to fly to Miami.

Freedom

Saypinar says that she'd come to the USA to "experience freedom." She wanted to escape the widespread misogyny she is facing in a masculine country like Turkey. Thus, she is appalled by how American treats her.

Deniz Saypinar clarifies that the only "traumatic and offensive" thing about the situation is the way the airline treated her, not the jean shorts and the crop top she'd worn.

Hate mail

Regrettably, it could be expected that Saypinar would receive hate mail from people criticizing her clothing. But she is wiser than the hate mail senders as she says those people should deal with own inner issues and let people live however they want.

Saypinar still needs to get over her “traumatic experience.” A spokesperson for American Airlines admits that the carrier has denied boarding for a customer on a flight from Dallas-Fort Worth to Miami.

"As stated in the conditions of carriage, all customers must dress appropriately. Offensive clothing isn't permitted onboard our flights," the spokesperson says.

Subjective words

But the problem is that “appropriate” and “offensive” are very subjective words. All people have their own interpretation of those words. Therefore, American’s conditions of carriage are not very helpful if they don’t include a clear dress code.
