Popular DJ rants online after airline has the audacity to tell her to remove vulgar clothing

A South Korean DJ who goes by the moniker “DJ Soda” blasted American Airlines on social media after they told her she couldn’t wear her “F**K YOU” pants on their flight.

She claims that she was “harassed and humiliated” by the airline staff for her decision to wear the vulgar clothing, and claimed that she was forced to remove her pants in public view.

“I GOT KICKED OFF FROM @AmericanAir flight and they harassed me to take off my sponsored @RIPNDIP ‘F**K YOU’ sweatpants in front of people to board again,” she tweeted, attaching a video of herself and her manager communicating with the flight crew.

“Yesterday coming back from JFK to LAX with American Airlines, I was harassed and humiliated. I was forced out of the plane and was harassed to take off my pants in front of the flight crews at the gate,” she continued. “I have never had an issue with wearing this pair of pants before in my many months of touring in North America and they did not have any problem with me wearing it at the time of check-in nor when I sat down at my seat.”

She was allowed to board the flight, but was approached shortly after and told that she needed to retrieve her belongings and deplane, where staff explained to her that her clothing was “offensive” and she might need to take the next flight. She claims that she had an “important meeting” to attend in her destination city, and reportedly offered to change out of the objectionable sweatpants, but says she was “ignored” and “denied.”

“With my broken fingers, I hardly ended up taking off my pants in front of the whole crew and standing half-naked while they still refused to board me on the flight,” she explained. “They even sarcastically commented that I could have taken off my pants earlier.”

Now, standing in front of the entire airport pantsless, DJ Soda was allowed back on the flight and put her pants on inside out to hide the vulgar messaging.

She claims the interaction left her “mortified and trembling in fear” though it didn’t stop her from taking the flight through to her destination after takeoff was delayed for an hour. She said she would be boycotting American Airlines, but it’s unclear whether any airline would let her fly with the same clothing.

Despite having her staunch supporters by her side, there were many social media commenters who were less than sympathetic to her situation:
