WARNING: Offensive Content
A South Korean DJ has targeted American Airlines after she was taken off a flight from New York to Los Angeles for her “inappropriate and “offensive” leggings.
Hwang So-Hee – known as DJ Soda – covered her drama on social media this week, revealing that the leggings were “sponsored @RIPNDIP f*** you sweatpants”.

“Staff suddenly approached me to pack my things and get off the plane without any explanation,” Ho-see wrote on Twitter.
“When I was escorted off the plane, they claimed my sweatpants were ‘inappropriate’ and ‘objectionable’ and told me to catch the next flight.
“They had no problem with me wearing it when I checked in, nor when I sat down in my seat.”
So-hee says she was desperate not to miss her flight because she had a meeting in LA.
“I begged to stay on the flight but was ignored by the staff and flight attendants. I even offered to change clothes, but the request was declined.”
“What happened next was horrific.”
So-hee claims she was forced to take off her pants in front of onlookers – despite having a broken finger – turned them inside out before being allowed to run again.

“I rarely took my pants off in front of the entire crew and stood half-naked while they still refused to board the flight. They even sarcastically remarked that I could have taken my pants off sooner.
“When they finally let me in, I turned my pants inside out and finally sat down after an hour of delay, causing inconvenience to members of the flights on board.
“I was mortified and fearful for the next 6 hours on my flight back to LA. I have never been treated unfairly in my eight years of touring, especially in a country known for its freedom of expression and individuality.”

However, an American Airlines spokesperson said the company applies its policy.
“American Airlines policy prohibits offensive clothing,” they told The Sun.
“During the boarding process for American Airlines Flight 306 at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), our team members briefed Ms. So-hee about our policies and allowed her to undress using explicit language.
“The customer complied with the requests and was allowed onward travel to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) as scheduled.”
