A young lady claims she was kicked out of a busy shopping centre by security staff because her shorts were too short.
Gabrielle Gibson, 19, was enjoying a nice afternoon browsing her favourite stores when she says a security guard approached her and told her outfit was inappropriate.It was a very hot day, so she was wearing a pair of ripped denim shorts and an off the shoulder colourful top.
She says she left the house “feeling beautiful”, but the staff’s comments and the abuse she’s had since have left her feeling extremely bad about herself.
Gabriella, who lives in Alabama, said: “It made me feel humiliated to be honest.
After the incident, she shared a photo of her outfit on social media.
She wrote: “I was literally harassed and kicked out of the [shopping centre] today because of what I’m wearing.
“Apparently grown men couldn’t contain themselves so I get kicked out.
“Security officer initiated that he was looking at my ass cheeks and it was a problem.
“I told them i have bigger thighs and it’s just to hot for jeans that I can’t help they ride up a bit.
“It doesn’t bother me then it shouldn’t bother you. They went as far as to threaten to call a police officer.
“From what i seen today everyone had short shorties on.
“I mean come on its August and 100° outside. I dont know why i was pinpointed.
“I’m just disgusted with the behavior of all these people. I was just having a good time trying to look around. Everyone can share this. This whole incident has made me embarrassed.”
