EasyJet Passenger Kicked Off Flight For 'Showing Too Much Cleavage'
A mum-of-two was left shocked when she was 'kicked off' an easyJet flight after a 'sexist' stewardess told her to 'put a top on'.
Harriet Osborne, 31, was forced to leave the flight and sleep on the floor at Malaga Airport with her friend before paying an extra £149 ($189) to fly home the following day.
The make-up artist explained that she was not wearing a bra, but had nipple covers on and tape. She also covered up with a friend's jumper but was still turned away.
Harriet from Southwold in Suffolk told The Sun: "The crew were horrible and made me feel cheap. This air hostess confronted me in front of the whole plane and said I wasn't allowed on in that top.
"She said to me, 'Oh no, move to the side,' and tried to cover me up with my hands. She said, 'You're not coming on my plane like that - you need to put a top on'."
She continued: "Then she ordered me off the plane, so of course I put a top on. When I tried to get back on she turned to the ground crew and said, 'She's not coming on my plane'.

"I was escorted away from the aircraft. I was in shock. It was so sexist.
"I just burst out crying. We had to walk back through the terminal where Spanish police stopped to question us. They were baffled when I told them why we'd been kicked off.
"I never show my body off at home but I felt spontaneous as I was on holiday. It made me feel so self-conscious."
On the other side of the coin, easyJet have since responded, suggesting there was an altercation that led to the incident.
A spokesperson said: "We can confirm that a passenger travelling from Malaga to Stansted on 23 June was unable to travel due to behaving disruptively.
"Following concerns about her clothing crew politely requested that the customer wear an additional top for the flight which the customer agreed to.
"However she then proceeded to act disruptively towards a member of our crew.
"Our cabin and ground crew are trained to assess all situations and to act quickly and appropriately. We do not tolerate abusive or threatening behaviour towards our staff."
