Singer Aubrey O’Day believes the shirt she was wearing on a recent American Airlines flight was not nearly as offensive as what some of her fellow passengers were sporting.

The 35-year-old singer shared details with People magazine about the incident last month that almost got her booted off a flight because of a top that apparently offended an American Airlines flight attendant.

The “Ex On The Beach” star claimed last month that she was forced to take off her shirt in “front of the entire plane” or risk being removed from the flight.

The top, which spelled out“f—,” was from “a brand out in L.A.,” she said Thursday at the premiere of “Marriage Boot Camp: Family Edition,” adding that she thought it “wasn’t bad at all.”

“I was in the Bahamas. I was working with a few different orphanages out there, and I just grabbed a sweater,” O’Day told People.

“They came up to me right after everything was settled and asked me to get off the plane. They said that one of the attendants was offended by my shirt,” she said, but added later that the airline had “every right [legally] to do that.”

“I said, ‘Well, I have a million followers, are you sure you don’t want to give me an option?’ Then they said I could go get off the plane and buy something. Because I didn’t have any clothes with me. I just had my purse,” O’Day continued.

A woman sitting next to her on the flight “offered to give me her shirt,” O’Day alleged, but said that another option was soon presented. She offered to turn her top inside out so that the offending word on the front would not be visible and the airline personnel agreed that would be acceptable.

She had tweeted about the incident last month and the fact that she had to turn her top around.

She complained to People on Thursday about what transpired next.

“Then I say, ‘Just let me sit right there and switch my top inside out with my boobs out on the entire plane,’” O’Day claimed. “They were not offended by that at all, but they were offended by the f word.”

She took issue with what was being touted as offensive, citing examples of others who she felt did not get called out as she did.

“The person next to me had a naked woman tattooed on his arm, including the pubic hair. And the woman next to me had a Trump shirt on, the man that grabs women by the p—, and is getting impeached, all of that was fine but the f word was not,” she argued.

In her tweets following the incident, O’Day expressed that she was “shocked.”

“I literally had to have my breasts in a bra out in front of everyone around me in order to not get kicked off,” she wrote.

American Airlines sent a message to O’Day, asking her to forward some more information but she refused and said she wished she had flown on Jet Blue airlines.

American Airlines responded to Fox News on Friday following the publication of O’Day’s interview with People.

“We reached out to Ms. O’Day after we learned about the situation and have no further comment at this time,” the airline said.
