Turkish bodybuilder Deniz Saypinar was barred from her flight on American Airlines at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport on Thursday. The crew found her outfit to be offensive and claimed that it “disturbed other families.”
She took to Instagram with a photo on her story, which disappears after 24 hours, showing herself wearing a brown crop top, shorts, and a white jacket tied around her waist.
“I like to wear feminine clothes that reveal my femininity, but I never dress in a way that will offend anyone,” she wrote in her Instagram post. “I’m mature and civilized enough to know what I can and cannot wear.”
A spokesperson for the airline said that customers must be clothes appropriately for flights. American Airlines’ website outlines their dress code, which states that “bare feet or offensive clothing” aren’t allowed for passengers.
Saypinar, who was first woman in Turkey to ever receive International Federation of BodyBuilders status, said in the Instagram story that flight attendants told her that her style “disturbed other families” at the airport, according to the Daily Mail. Saypinar was also the first non-American citizen to win the US National Bikini Fitness Competition in 2021.
“I feel insulted. They wouldn’t let me on the plane because I wore these shorts in the United States,’ Saypinar added.
