Turkish influencer and bodybuilder Deniz Saipinar, 26, was reportedly barred from boarding a flight in the state of Texas because of the clothes he was wearing at the time – short denim shorts and a brown top.
Deniz used his social network to highlight the situation, give his version, and criticize American Airlines Company for his flight attendant’s decision.
“You’ll never believe what happened to me,” said the athlete on video, with commissioners saying her style “upset other families”.
“I’m not naked. I like to wear women’s clothes that reveal my femininity, but I never wear clothes that hurt anyone,” Affect said. “What would separate us from animals if humans did not control their most primitive impulses.”
In the comments, many fans defended Deniz. “It’s 2021 and we still have a dress code to follow on an airplane, but only if you’re a woman, obviously. This is ridiculous,” wrote one follower. “Teach society to respect women instead of telling women what they should wear,” said another.
Deniz left Turkey to avoid conservatism regarding women, the influencer said in an interview Journal Daily Mail. She is the first Turkish woman to receive the highest degree of accreditation from the International Bodybuilding Federation.
