Eve J. Marie is making headlines for an outfit that was deemed too scandalous to fly.
In an interview, Marie, a well-known Playboy model, explained that she was left red-faced by a Southwest Airlines flight attendant who refused to let her board her flight because of an inappropriate outfit.
While the curvy model is known for her racy Instagram photos, she wore a low-cut leopard print top for her trip.
The influencer told Jam Press that she was traveling with her 7-year-old son from Dallas to Tulsa when the incident took place.
Marie regularly models for Playboy and proudly displays that she is a playmate in her Instagram bio.
The former investment assistant claimed that the crew member told her to change her outfit because it violated the airline’s dress code.
Marie said she was upset by what she was told because she has a “high status with the airline.”
She revealed: “When they threatened to remove me off the plane if I didn’t have a change of clothes, I felt completely humiliated, embarrassed, and highly offended. I’m an A list member for SWA and have a credit card with the airline, and I have perks that allow any person traveling with me to fly free because of my high status with the airline.”
She went on to say: “So even as being a loyal customer with them, I felt like the other women on the plane were judging me based on my attire, and they were saying my breasts are too large. Well, that’s something I can’t help.”
Marie, who recently covered Playboy South Africa, made this revelation about her humiliating experience: “When the African American attendant called me over and told me they had called somebody to inform me of needing to change my clothes or be removed, I was so surprised. The attendant herself apologized. This flight was my layover, and the first flight said nothing, so if this was truly the policy, then why was I not informed before I even boarded the first flight?”
To resolve the matter, Marie was told to cover up using the flight attendant’s sweater.
She shared: “In the end, I was forced to sit on the plane in front of all the other passengers with her work sweater across my chest. I was completely upset and embarrassed at how I was treated. The SWA policy on clothing says nothing about dress code except ‘lewd’… in which I was not that.”
She added: “I would like better diversification training, a clear and fair dress code policy that is the same across all SWA flights, a public apology, and those responsible held accountable.”
Marie said the dress code needs to be reviewed and explained that Southwest gave her $100, but that will not erase her humiliation.
Not that long ago, a Southwest captain was forced to give another woman his T-shirt for a halter top that was described as “lewd, obscene and offensive.”
