TikTok star Jacy told to ‘cover up’ top on Southwest plane

A US woman has shared how a revealing top almost got her kicked off her flight.

The TikTok star, who goes by the name of Jacy, told her 2.7 million followers how the flight attendant “harassed her” for wearing a corset top on the plane.

In the video, she explains how she got pulled aside and told to cover up.

“Some lady taps on my shoulder and asks ‘do you have a jacket or something? You need to cover up’,” Jacy said in the video.

Filming from her plane seat, Jacy then alleges the flight attendant handed her a shirt to wear.

When Jacy refused to put on the shirt, another passenger stepped up to defend her from the employee.

The flight attendant allegedly got defensive when she was questioned about what rules Jacy violated. The kind stranger got kicked off the flight.

The incident took place on a hot day where most passengers were reportedly wearing shorts and singlets.

Jacy didn’t believe her top was inappropriate, with her torso fully covered and only shoulders showing.

“Today has been a circus and f*** you, Southwest. I was about to cry.”

She called the whole interaction “embarrassing” and felt like she got “shamed in front of everybody”.

She also told how she wore a sports bra and biker shorts on a Southwest flight before and had no issues.

Jacy’s followers sided with the star, leaving her supportive messages.

One user wrote: “Why do men never get dress coded?!”

Another one added: “ Even more INSANE considering southwest planes are a million degrees before takeoff and after landing.”

“I’ve also been dress coded on a southwest flight girl I feel u,” sympathised one commenter.

“It’s air plane – who’s being ‘distracted’? LMFAO,” sarcastically said another.

The Southwest Airlines website states that their dress code is “relaxed and casual”, but the passengers are expected to look “tasteful and well-groomed”.

The Sun has contacted Southwest Airlines for comment.
