Two Girls Weren't Allowed on a United Airlines Flight Because They Were Wearing Leggings, and People Are MAD

So much for Sunday Funday! Today United Airlines is facing major social media backlash after Shannon Watts took to Twitter to report that a United gate agent stopped two girls from boarding because they wer wearing, wait for it…LEGGINGS. A thrid girl was allowed to board after changing. Wtf? Seriously what is more comfy to wear on a flight than leggings? Also what year is it? Here’s the tweets Shannon dispatched from the scene:

United repsonded at some point and while they seemed to be concerend intially, they quickly moved into robotic corporate lingo overdrive.

They then switched gears a bit, claiming that the the girls were “pass travelers” (company employes or family memeners) and have to follow a dress code when flying.

Twitter quickly joined in the pile on, pointintg out the sexism and hypocrisy of the airline, and many said they would no longer be flying United. Even celebs were getting in on the act.

What do you think? Is United right? Or is this just another example of women being shamed and labeled based on what they wear?
