Thanks to a Southwest Airlines captain, one Chicago resident didn’t have to leave her boobs “at home” while flying out of the Windy City this past Tuesday.

In a series of tweets, passenger Kayla Eubanks recounted how she was initially “KICKED OFF” her flight because her outfit was showing too much cleavage.

“Y’all I was KICKED OFF my @SouthwestAir flight because my boobs are ‘lewd, obscene and offensive.’ I was told that passengers may look at me in my attire and be offended,” she wrote in tweets posted Tuesday afternoon.

Look (*Graphic content):

Technically, it appears she initially never actually got on the plane. Instead, when she tried approaching the gate, she faced resistance from the woman seen below, who pointed out that the airline’s policy on lewdness prohibits her from boarding.

Yet for unclear reasons, the employee was unable to locate the actual policy and show it to Eubanks, thus forcing the irate Chicago passenger to wait — and potentially miss her flight — as the Southwest Airlines employee tried finding it.

Just to be clear, Southwest Airlines does contain provisions pertaining to lewdness in its “Contract of Carriage.”

“Carrier may, in its sole discretion, refuse to transport, or may remove from an aircraft at any point, any Passenger … wearing clothes that are lewd, obscene or patently offensive,” the contract explicitly reads.

Shortly after Eubanks was blocked at the gate, the unnamed Southwest Airlines brought the captain out to speak with her and apparently try and calm her down.

They’re hating on you cuz you’re looking good, is that right?” the captain asked in what appeared to be an attempt to ease the tension.

The attempt failed.

“I don’t take this lightly at all. I would like to get on my plane,” Eubanks said.

Watch (*Language warning):

After the two spoke briefly about the situation, the captain then asked if she’d be willing to put on something to cover up her cleavage.

“Here’s what I’m going to do because I want to get you there. I want to get there too. If they are like, ‘Hey, the rules says you have to cover up,’ do you have something to cover up. … Do you have a shirt, or do you want me to get you one of mine?” he asked.

She agreed to accept a shirt from him, though she still continued to demand to see the policy.

I’m just very curious as to what the rule is. What does the rule say? I have to leave my ti–ies at home?” she sarcastically asked.

A couple minutes later, this happened:

Eubanks had finally made it onto the flight and was on her way. But the drama wasn’t over yet. Upon arriving at her destination, she was accosted by Southwest Airlines workers who tried to clarify the airline’s lewdness policy to her.

However, she wasn’t trying to hear it.

“How is it obscene, offensive or lewd?” she asked of her outfit.

“Well, it reveals quite a bit,” one of the workers said.

She replied, “So should I leave mine home?”

“Your top?” the worker said.

“No, my boobs,” Eubanks responded.

“No, but you can wear a t-shirt, maybe a long t-shirt,” the worker then tried explaining.

Watch:

The story has gone uber viral on social media and attracted both backlash and praise. Critics say she should grow up, learn to respect the rules and acknowledge that dressing provocatively around children isn’t appropriate behavior.

Look:

But supporters view things … well, differently.
