Feminists on social media have flown into a fit of rage following news that United Airlines supposedly barred two female passengers from boarding a flight because they were wearing leggings.

It all began when one Twitter user – who was supposedly present at the time of the incident – decided to narrate what she was seeing.

Very quickly, other social media users decided to join in chastising United Airlines for their obvious act of sexism.

Some have even threatened to wear leggings on their upcoming United Airlines flights in protest.

Unfortunately for these seething feminists, they’re not quite in the loop on the full story.

Here’s United Airlines’ response.

Speaking with the Washington Post, a United Airlines spokesman expanded, stating the passengers that were turned away were attempting to board using a United employee pass.

This pass, according to the spokesman, comes with its own dress policy.

“Our regular passengers are not going to be denied boarding because they are wearing leggings or yoga pants,” said the spokesman. “But when flying as a pass traveler, we require [these] pass travelers to follow rules, and that is one of the rules.”

Continuing, he said, “they were not compliant with the dress policy with the benefit,” adding that the teens were aware of the rule.

The Washington Post states that travelers familiar with United’s travel pass say “it has long been a requirement for those using the benefit to dress up more than paying passengers.”

The rationale? These travelers are “representing” the company, as the spokesman puts it, according to The New York Times.

Of course, this explanation still does not register with feminist social media users like Christine Teigen who apparently doesn’t understand that nobody really cares what she wears on a United Airlines flight because she’s not an employee representing the company.

    I have a rule… dont try to reason with drunk people or feminists.

    • Miles to Code

      There’s a fundamental difference?

      • Rekt

        Yes. Drunk people usually set out to have fun, and sometime they are fun. Feminists do the exact opposite.

        • Miles to Code

          Yeah true. You do have a point but I’ve usually had to deal with drunks that are a total PITA. Feminists generally are a PITA.

        • Dudley Morris

          Feminists only have fun when they’re being outraged.

      • Derrick Trottier

        drunk is temporary, feminism is terminal.

        • ChamTeaDaughterOfHera

          Nope, I was a feminist back in the day. It is not terminal, some of us do get over it with age, wisdom and experience.

          • NoBS NoSpam

            “I was a feminist back in the day. ” @ChamTeaDaughterOfHera
            Did you hate men to the point of insanity?
            Did you become physically ill if a conservative female got more attention than you?
            Did you have short hair, piercings and a p*ssy hat?
            I suspect you still respected opposition to the point of being civilized.
            Today’s Feminazis require irrational hatred and anger.

          • Richard Saunders

            You might have gotten over it because Feminism has taken a nasty turn from it’s origin. It’s no longer about equality and is more about a far leftist progressive agenda and man hating.

          • CA Grandma

            Richard, sounds like you are quite worried. Don’t be. I am a feminist and I don’t hate men – I married one (53 years ago), I have a son whom I adore, and I have great respect for people — male and female — who believe in “live and let live.”

          • carniala

            then you are not a feminist if you like or even just let men live and let be.

        • Miles to Code

          And being drunk leaves you with a hangover. Feminism is lunacy.

          • Large Basket

            and loathing, self hatred, a disheveled look, and a bunch of cats with odd names like Noballs and Russian Spy.

          • Miles to Code

            Nothing wrong with one or two cats. More than that and you’re a lunatic lol

        • amortiser

          To quote Winston Churchill to the woman who accused him of being drunk:

          Lady, I may be drunk but you are ugly. In the morning I will be sober.

          Fits nicely, doesn’t it?

    • Jay Sirois

      Avoid drunk feminists at all cost.

      • Richard Saunders

        I prefer to avoid all feminists drunk or not.

      • Dudley Morris

        Or drunk women more generally. Talk about SHRILL.

    • James C

      You should add liberals and snowflakes to that list.

  • Josh Pactor

    Pretty sure the airline will care if someone tries to get on topless like one of those Twitiots posted above.

  • But… its shannon watts. At least give us time to send her snarky tweets about gun control! lol

  • Jeremy Moosmann

    Let’s be honest with ourselves. Anyone else notice Shannon Watts’ name on that tweet?

  • David

    Liberals are really that stupid…. They will believe anything someone tells them….

    • Noblelox

      Right and you redneck inbred hill-billies are so smart?

      I mean, you read the Breitbart News Network, I have shoes with a higher IQ than you.

      • Large Basket

        you have feet larger than a size 180?

        • Bob Kittel

          surprised that he/she has shoes

      • straycat

        You’re a negative person

      • Kimmy3

        You go get ’em Nobley!

      • AverageJoe1987

        Awww, someone’s upset that the feminist idiots got caught up in Fake News again.

        You liberals are so gullible.

        Heck, it’s why we have the mess that is Obamacare and the Migrant Crisis. Because you idiots believed the media that Obama was Messiah.

        You want to talk Hillbillies? I live in Kentucky and all of the cousin-humping, meth taking hillbillies all had “Clinton/Kaine” signs in front of their trailers.

        • DaisyToo

          They would, given that the Clinton pedigree makes Mama Boo Boo’s shine by comparison.

  • masseywho

    My girlfriend was married to a pilot. She always dressed up when she flew.

    • Noblelox

      Ewww sloppy seconds!! 😉

      • daz2002

      Seen the pictures and she seems to be a butterface.

      • Sparafucile

        She’s not. But she is a butterbrain.

    Triggering Libtards is easy…..Put 5 shovels in a line and tell them to go take their pick…BAHAHAHAHAHA

  • Gambler X

    Just tell that sad cow Shannon that the girls have carry permits and own firearms, she’ll change her tune.

  • Steve_o

    The false reports will be assimilated as the truth by most for as long as this incident is remembered.

    Which won’t be long, except for the feminazis.

  • Pamela

    So sick of this “what are we pissed off about today” mentality.

    • Oscar

      Are you pissed about it?

      • Pamela

        Not pissed, rolling my eyes sick of it.

  • Harry Ballsaq

    Rules aren’t for the libtards though only for everyone else

  • eastSideTracy

    yup. I knew the ending to this story. and it might very well end with the employee who gave the passes to the teens losing their job after all this fuss. THAT’s how strict the airlines are about using these passes. you can’t even wear frayed jeans or jeans with holes or flip flops. and you’re NOT suppose to draw attention to the fact that you’re flying on a pass.good job, bird brains.

    • JD Hart

      How so? The teens knew the rules.

      • Julia D. Plorable

        And that’s the whole point of what she was saying, wasn’t it?
        The teens knowingly jeopardized the person who provided them with said rules-attached-pass.

  • Duhitar

    As soon as I read the article I figured it was about the dress code for staff. Have the same here with my airline. They are always stricter, and you can be offloaded for not conforming very easily. The girls knew but decided to make an issue of it, and lost out. No story really.

  • sheldj0

    Of course Chrisy Tiegen has flown without pants, she’s an attention whore looking for any way to get noticed.

    • JD Hart

      Isnt she one of the kooks that bleeds on herself for feminism?

  • JD Hart

    I bet they were fat chicks

    • Alice P Jones

      They were ten years old asshole.

      • AverageJoe1987

        So why are feminists demanding little girls be half naked on airplanes?

        Well, can’t be shocked you feel that way.

        Heck, CNN said it was bigoted for little girls not wanting to have grown men expose themselves to them in bathrooms.

      • DaisyToo

        Since when are 10 year old children teenagers?

  • Kimmy3

    As a flight attendant for over 25 years my first thought when I saw the headline was they are “non rev” employee travellers. Duh! Employees have had dress codes for decades. It used to be stringent even just 5 years ago…no jeans, no shorts, no logo t-shirts, no sandals, etc. It’s more lax now but there is still a code.

  • EnglishBullDogs

    Buddy Pass is a family member discounted ticket with United. My sister was an employee with United and if we didn’t fellow the dress code that could cause her to lose her job. As Travelers by choosing to use a Buddy Pass we were require to fellow the rules of the Dress Code. Rules are Rules.

    • lucke1949@yahoo.com

      My sister worked for Delta. Same rules apply with their buddy pass.

  • ddd

    I feel like there’s a niche market for black people that criticize feminism, or anger directed at police, criticize black live matter, etc. I guess the word people use is “token”

  • Mermadic

    My grandfather in law travels. A lot. A couple of years ago he was on a United Flight he had received as a gift for flying so often. It was basically this same thing, a benefit, a bonus flight, and the rules are there for a reason; They give these bonus flights out and use the experience as a way to advertise their services. Magazines, pamphlets, ads in papers, anything with a picture of a bunch of people on a flight that doesn’t look 100% staged is likely from one of these flights. They literally are representing the airline.

    He told me a story about coming back from China and as he was boarding, he was pulled aside and asked to change his pants. He had been wearing shorts and the dress code said he had to wear pants. He wasn’t angry, there was no argument, which is probably why they offered him vouchers for the airline shops to get a pair of pants. He was ready to go buy them, but was lucky that a passenger on another flight, without the restrictions, overheard and was willing to change pants with him. And luckily they were the same size. They even exchanged the pants through the mail later.

  • Alice P Jones

    Other reports state they were ten year old kids and Dad was wearing a shorts-which were apparently ok. There is so more to the story yet look at the comments. Milo’s hatred of fat people bubbling to the surface.

    • AverageJoe1987

      Oh buzz off.

      Why is it you feminist trash can be up in arms over stupid, non-issues like this, but you trash never make a peep when Muslims treat women like property in the Middle East, and you scum never have any issue with all of the women raped across Europe by Muslims.

      And I haven’t seen any feminist trash condemn the illegals who raped a 14 year old girl at school in Maryland.

      So take your outrage over nonsense somewhere else. Because while you whine about this stupid stuff, there is actualy crap going on that you don’t care about.

  • Robert Cameron

    And here we have moral crusader Shannon Watts, interjecting herself into an issue between a company and it’s employees. She doesn’t have to know all the facts, just her interpretation and her outrage.

  • AverageJoe1987

    Notice how feminists are all outraged over this Fake News story, but haven’t made a peep about a girl being raped at school by illegals and then having the superintendent call her a racist for speaking up about her attack?

  • Michael Ludgate

    Just heard this news item, how do I set Alexa to read the fact based version of the news instead?

  • ShadowSandy

    Tantrums, over and over, that’s all this is. Brats who don’t understand why they have to follow nasty things like rules.

    • Sherri

      They don’t understand because momma and daddy never made them follow the rules. The real world must be a rude awakening for them.

  • Sparafucile

    No comment on the source — activist gadfly Shannon Watts?? (of “Moms Demand Action” infamy)

  • There are so many things I don’t agree with you about, Milo … yet you are the only one in the media apparently putting a damper on this ridiculous, unnecessary hysteria about United. I think I’m going to fly United from now on just because I know all the hysterical folks who don’t actually look at the big picture will be boycotting them.

  • Pearlbuck

    And why can’t stewardesses wear thongs to work? Huh? It’s time for a revolution.

  • UStodd

    Over reaction with out facts as usual.

  • Obamanation Survivor

    She is a Bloomberg lacky, not a feminist by profession anyway. She is paid to cry “what about the children?!?” at anti 2A rallys. Dumb as a bowl of pudding either way.

  • CA Grandma

    What’s wrong with leggings? Nothing. a) nobody can look up your skirt b) no bare skin touches public seats c) why can men wear shorts, while women can’t wear leggings. I am 81 years old and I will wear leggings anywhere I choose to – keep me off a plane because of what I wear and you will find yourself in court faster than a speeding bullet.

    • Sherri

      Didn’t bother to actually read the article did you…

      • Susan

        How are the other passengers going to know that those girls are affiliated with United? Yes, the Gatekeeper, but anyone else? This was just silly.

  • Ms_Fortune

    And no retraction will ever be printed, this is the biggest flaw of the internet, to easy to spread bullshit like this.

  • JC

    Shannon Watts is that moron from Mom’s Demand… She’s an attention whore who will never let facts get in the way of a good story.

  • DAROGR

    Well, Chrissy Telgen doesn’t need much of an excuse to flash her twat.

  • Adnil Yelkam

    If the media would have just done a little you know, research, they could have probably avoided their embarrassment. I worked at a very small air taxi in barrow, ak a few moons back and even we were told about the dress code when you fly on reciprocal passes. it’s not new, it’s pretty standard, and there is no story here.

  • amortiser

    Fly Girl, you are welcome back in Australia anytime. Another one who gets the fake news meme. It’s not that hard, is it?

  • If you buy your ticket, you wear what you want. When they buy your ticket, you wear what THEY want. It’s not complicated.
