It turns out masks aren’t all the airlines are forcing you to wear these days. A Turkish bodybuilder named Deniz Saypinar was just trying to hop on a flight Thursday at DFW when American Airlines flight attendants told her she couldn’t fly due to what she was wearing. Saypinar, 26, wasn’t wearing enough clothes, according to the airline workers who allegedly called her “naked.”
It turns out Saypinar was wearing short shorts, a napkin around her chest and had a sweater thing around her waist. And just like that, according to the bodybuilder, she was told it wasn’t enough clothing to fly.
“You will never believe what happened to me at Texas Airport,” Saypinar said on Instagram Thursday. “I moved from Islamic country because how they treat women as a fkn second or third even no class and now this is happening,” she added on Instagram Story.
Here’s what Saypinar was wearing that sent American workers over the edge:
American Airlines told The NY Post that “all customers must dress appropriately and offensive clothing isn’t permitted onboard our flights.” The airline added that Saypinar rebooked and eventually made it to Miami in time to catch some Bikini Week shows that are now featured on her Instagram Story.
Look, Sayinpar wasn’t flying to Portland, Maine. She was flying to Miami. The flight crew should’ve taken this into consideration. Deniz is clearly in Miami attire and going to a city with 90% humidity. LET THE WOMAN BREATHE YOU MANIACS!
“I like to wear feminine clothes that reveal my femininity, but I never dress in a way that will offend anyone. I’m mature and civilized enough to know what I can and cannot wear,” Deniz continued.
“I don’t deserve to be treated like the worst person in the world for wearing denim shorts. What separates us from animals if humans can’t control even their most primitive impulses?”
Exactly. It’s like these airlines don’t understand that we’re living in times where Instagram models/influencers/bodybuilders are crushing glutes day. They’re crushing legs day — yes, it’s a whole separate day…I watch enough Instagram Stories to know this fact.
Now, what if I told you the airlines didn’t have a problem with this guy a decade ago, but they now have a problem with Deniz? The guy told the San Francisco Chronicle that he’d flown like this for years and had been asked very few times to put on pants. (Proceed to that link above with caution.)
Now, let’s get back to Deniz. Shame on the workers who told her to cover up!
