Alaska Airlines has once again been accused of slut-shaming a passenger, as a TikToker claimed she was escorted off a flight because she wore a crop top. Sharing a video of her police interrogation following her removal from the flight, the woman has so far been identified only by her TikTok username @fattrophywife. Surprisingly enough, the woman shared a follow up video of herself flying in a later flight wearing that exact same top that she was penalized for. It is however worth noting that the woman's mask was constantly below her nose throughout the duration of her TikTok clips — it still hasn't been established whether she was initially removed from the plane for not wearing her mask properly or if it was her outfit that caused problems.

News of this comes after a spate of passengers removed from airlines for reasons ranging from not wearing a mask to unnecessarily creating a scene in the middle of the flight. Southwest Airlines came under fire for kicking out a fully vaxxed family after their autistic son refused to wear a mask. Spirit Airlines faced a similar backlash for deboarding an entire family because their 4-year-old toddler wasn't wearing a mask. Meanwhile, American Airlines had to remove a woman, wearing a mask with holes, for calling a flight attendant 'b***h', as seen in a viral video. None of these incidents had anything to do with the passenger's outfits though, making Alaska Airlines seem all the more ridiculous for slut shaming a passenger for an item of clothing that is worn frequently by many.

In her TikTok video documenting the incident, user @fattrophywife reveals she was on her way to a rap performance in Fairbanks, Alaska. Speaking to an officer, she tells them that she was approached thrice by flight attendants before being removed for wearing something that they called "inappropriate". The TikToker says she was “asked..to put [her] shirt on…and then they approached me again, saying that I can’t wear this, my stomach is showing and it’s inappropriate. And I said ‘I’m covered up, I’m fine.'" 

The flight attendant continued to reprimand the TikTok user for her outfit, before she retorted, “If you’re going to kick me off, kick me off.” That's when cops were called, but they also confirmed in the video that the user hadn't committed a crime. The user shows her full outfit in a follow-up video, where she can be seen wearing a long sleeved, cropped tee and shorts. She then reveals she was allowed to fly in the same clothes unde the same airlines.

The incident however isn't an isolated one, as just a month ago, another TikToker by the username @sierrasteadman shared a video claiming Alaska Airlines “slut-shame[d]" her in front of an entire plane before kicking her out. She could be seen wearing a sports bra, shorts, and a sweatshirt in a follow up video, and ultimately, the airlines apologized to her, calling her experience a service failure on their part. In @fattrophywife's case, no such apology has been quoted so far. But the user @sierrasteadman did address the recent incident in a TikTok video, writing: “This should not be happening numerous amounts of times. It should not even be happening once.”
