It is hard enough for a female bodybuilder to be happy with the way they look. However Turkish fitness model Deniz Saypinar found a way to be happy with her appearance, only to be forced off of an American Airlines flight because of it.
The way Saypinar explains it, she was looking to board a flight in Dallas, TX, after moving to the US from Turkey to get away from the conservative views of her people. As the first ever IFBB Pro Bodybuilder to come from Turkey, she is obviously quite proud of her physique and decided to show it off with a fashionable outfit.
However, as she explains the American Airlines flight attendants were not thrilled with her choice of attire, and told her to remove herself from the plane. Apparently, they felt that she was “disturbed other families,” although she shared what she was wearing to her Instagram, showing that it was not overly revealing.
After the incident, Deniz Saypinar again took to her social media to voice her outrage over the situation. Here she plead her case for why she should be allowed to show off her femininity, while tagging American Airlines in her posts to express her frustration.
“I am an athlete, and now I have to wait here until the morning,” Saypinar wrote (h/t Daily Mail). “I like to wear feminine clothes that reveal my femininity, but I never dress in a way that will offend anyone. I’m mature and civilised enough to know what I can and cannot wear.’
“I don’t deserve to be treated like the worst person in the world for wearing denim shorts,” she added. “What separates us from animals if humans can’t control even their most primitive impulses.”
“I feel insulted” Saypinar continued. “They wouldn’t let me on the plane because I wore these shorts in the United States,” Saypinar said.
She certainly has a point, as the outfit she was wearing was far from being overly revealing. Of course, there was a fair bit of skin showing, but it is not like she was trying to board the plane in lingerie, or even in the bathing suit that she wears to compete.
At the end of the day, it is rather frustrating that Deniz Saypinar was forced into this type of situation. She seemed understandably upset at the time, but hopefully she is not too discouraged by what went down.
I side with the airline
There’s a time and place for everything and clearly this is not the place to wear such attire. I don’t know how she was ever allowed to board the flight in the first place.
I like her outfit but this is not the place to wear it.
Notice it is women commenting or complaining. I guarantee you no “families” complained but the wives did because their husbands/boyfriends were staring at her. Hypocrites.
Understanding that she spent countless time and money to achieve her stature, and I’m now a raving fan of this Mediterranean beauty, I’m guessing that the American Airlines doesn’t ban ‘ mature and civilized’ passengers. They actually desire these types of passengers, and why wouldn’t they? They airlines look the other way most times of passengers attire, or lack thereof, yet they have to draw the line with partial indecency. The Disney Kingdom has the same dilemma, monitoring skimpy attire from guest. It’s just matter of public decency for families and the puritanical blowhards.
I mean lets be real that outfit she was trying to justify as appropriate simply was not, she is wearing a shears see through top that barley covers her breast for starters, Second those damn near g string booty shorts that she conveniently has tied a sweat shirt around for her picture, just look at them she has more pockets than actual shorts, This woman sexualizes herself at every instance but gets mad and screams femininity when called on her bs
Some people are just too privileged.
Why not just wear something appropriate when you’re on the plane, and then you can wear anything you like after. So simple. Big deal. Some people just want all the attention.
Sided the airline. Check herself first before complaining.
She could have been asked to put on skirt and use the sweater as it is meant to be worn. She looks hot and I am sure she has worked hard to look like that BUT she should respect herself more. In some circumstances less is NOT better!
Inappropriate for public travelling. A time and place for that skimpy attire….. like, her back garden 🍹😃😃
Attention seeking …usually by people with low self esteem… 👎🏿
I’m torn because she has worked very hard on that body and I don’t blame her for wanting to show it off, but as others have said there is a time and a place. My husband is welcome to look if he wants but the outfit would make me uncomfortable because where do you look?? I don’t want to see someone barely dressed walking around. Not only that but I have my ‘travelling pants’ which are soft, loose leggings. You can’t tell me she’s not sitting there with a huge wedgy the whole flight. Yikes!
The outfit was very unacceptable. Being proud of your femininity is one thing but come on this is ridiculous.
Why does she have to throw in the part about it being because she’s a woman? I am 100 percent sure if a guy came on dressed like that, he would be tossed off too. In fact, most likely, police and criminal charges would have been added to the mix as well.
So she moved from a conservative country like Turkey to the U.S. and she felt that what she was wearing was appropriate. It can hardly be called denim shorts. So she is a bodybuilder, big deal. The airlines is a business , and as a business they have to think about everyone. She had many other options when traveling such as driving, or using other airlines. But to whine like a Karen on social media and try to justify her 8mmature behavior is just plain ignorant. She calls for respect for herself, what about all of the other patrons at the airport. Decency dictates you dress appropriately based on the event , time of day and service. What a Karen. Good for the airlines and shame on her for acting like a child.
“I like to wear feminine clothes that reveal my femininity, ” isn’t that the same thing a stipper would say. If she couldn’t wear that in her home country what makes her thing that’s appropriate to wear in the U.S. .
What she was wearing may not be inappropriate ate the beach but it certainly was for an airline flight or streetwear for that matter. Just because you have great body you still need to dress in a way that doesn’t make people uncomfortable.
I don’t have a problem with AA having guidelines and standards. If I showed up in the same outfit, I would expect them to turn me away as well. Yes, I’m male. And I’m not going to show up for a flight wearing a cut-off wife-beater and destroyed shorts. It would be, “Sir, come with us please”.
Sitting at the front of the bus was “offensive”, if you were black, a while ago. Even today, being openly gay, or breastfeeding is inappropriate or offensive to many idiots in backwards countries like the USA. Those idiots need to learn that their stupid opinions do not matter. Noone cares if you’re offended… it”s your problem, not anyone else’s. Look the other way, close your eyes and think of Jesus. Or go back home to Oklahoma or wherever you came from if you can’t mind your own business. You do not have the right to dictate what is acceptable and what is offensive. If you’re offended by the sight of such a gorgeous and magnificent woman in a skimpy, but perfectly decent outfit, you are an absolute, utter idiot.
Sure I love it and have no problem with it, but the airline is a business and it’s their right to determine when clothing crosses the line. I suspect if anything this is great free publicity for her.
She was actually turned away because she kept audibly whispering, “Please look at me. Please look at me. Please… I need your attention… Please. Pleeeease.”
I side with the airline,that outfit is beach or park appropriate
I found it to be inappropriate. She’s not at a competition. No need to show off every chance you get. Maybe she should fly with Hooter Airlines.
The article doesnt mention that American Airlines stated they have a dress policy that all customers need to adhere to. They also booked her on another flight. I understand she is a bodybuilder; however, a little class wouldn’t hurt when not on stage.
GOOD GREIF YOU PEOPPLE ON HERE COMMENTING ARE WAY TO OVERLY SENSITIVE. THIS IS AMERICA AND WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THE LAND OF THE FREE. UNFORTUNATELY THAT HAS BEEN A LIE PURPETUATED THROUGH OUT THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY. WHE WEALTHY ELITE WHITE MEN HAVEBALWAYS CONTROLLED AMERICA. THE REAL TRAGEDY HERE IS THIS POOR WOMAN CAME HERE BELIEVING THIS LIE AND HAD TO FIND OUT THE HARD WAY HOW DISGUSTING AMERICANS ARE. AMERICAN AIRLINES EMPLOYEES PURELY DISCRIMINATED AGAINST HER FOR HER CLOTHING CHOICE. NEWS FLADH TO ALL THOSE WHO FEEL AMERICAN AIRLINES DID RIGHT, YOU HAVE THE CHOICE TO GET ANOTHER FLIGHT OR USE ANOTHER AIRLINE. THIS WOMANS FREEDOM SHOULD NEVER BE INFRINGED UPON BECAUSE YOU ARE OFFENDED. THAT IS TYRANNY. THAT IS WHAT WE ARE IN THE USA. A TYRANNICAL SOCIETY, GOVERNED BY THE OLIGARCHS, WHOSE SOLE GOAL.IS TO MAKE THEM SELVES RICHER AND RICHER BY DISENFRANCHISING THE REMAINING 99 PERCENT OF US. ITS JUST SAD THAT SO MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE INNTHIS FALSE NARRATIVE THAT THE USA IS A FREE COUNTRY FULL OF OPPORTUNITIES. ITS A LIE. THESE TRUTHS ONLY APPLY TO THE WEALTHIEST 1 PERCENT. THE REST OF US LIVE UNDER THEIR THUMB AND ALOT BELIEVE THEY HAVE THIS RIGHT TO BE COMFORTABLE AND NOT BE OFFENDED… AND THIS MY FRIENDS IS WHAT TRUE WHITE PRIVILEGE LOOKS LIKE.
I saw this woman at the airport and believe me when I say: 1. She pulled out the sweater for the picture or next flight. 2. If your the right height (3-4 year old) or when she bends you can see her V!!!!! Seriously. Its not just about respect for others, who knows what diseases she spreading or picking at the airport. Even strippers wipe down the pole with every use!!! Top models walk the run way half naked but they have enough common sense to know there is a time and place for everything. Even porn stores have more class than this Turkish chick.
There is a difference between Being a women who possess sexuality and sexyness in herself (not her body).
I feel dressing like this so publicly expresses insecurity and a need to be loved by others, when she should only need acceptance from within, not outward.
I really don’t get people saying “This may be OK for the beach but not for the plane”. It’s either offensive or its not. Why should someone be insulted if she’s dressed like that. It’s how she feels good. Your opinions doesn’t matter. The same people are offended by this type of clothing but also by Muslim burkas that cover everything and also by women breastfeeding in public so in reality they are offended by anything not belonging to their simple narrow minded way of thinking. Grow up and stop feeling like you can control everyone.
Who is she trying to impress?? Definitely the wrong time and place. She should know better
I know people don’t like to think about it, but planes can crash. Wear pants and closed toed shoes on an airline for your own safety. No one’s going to make you, but who expects to be trying to navigate an aisle of debris after the plane crashed while going to Miami. Now try doing that wearing nothing.
Siding with the airline. Put on some clothes, honey. Welcome to the USA.
There was a Karen involved in this most likely. If the plane was filled by men only, no one would have complained. Still inappropriate tho.
This is just an example of a woman who loves to have all eyes and attention on her.
I would never tell my daughter “now look at her, you should dress more like her”
And yes, it’s typically women that you see these news stories about because men don’t usually try to walk on a plane with their beer belly hanging out of a crop top and jean shorts cut so high that their man parts stuck out!
All of youyr people that say “well she’s worked so hard on her body so she should be able to show it off”…. So it’s okay to dress like a slut, but only if you have the abs to go with it?
What a self-aborbed narcissist. The only person who matters to her is her.
She got exactly what she wanted a huge bump in social media. Come on people the airlines are no different than Facebook they are a private company who can deplane deplatform anybody they wish. What happen to the days when you got dressed up to fly??
I agree. The outfit was not appropriate and she did it for attention. As a woman we are more than our bodies. We don’t or shouldn’t have to reveal our whole *package” for attention nor to feel sexy or confident in ourselves.
( I’m not hating. I too have worked hard for my physique ( swimmer/weights) and I love my body.)
Just got from Cabo and flew United. They are voted #1 airline for hiring the most diverse employees. This is what happens. Poor customer service, no in flight service or politeness, just mask Nazis. Remember this the same snowflake airline that made everyone deplane for singing the National Athem. Sell the stock and book your flights elsewhere. If that chic had purple hair, pierced nose, tats and was a slob with a PRIDE shirt on, no problem.
You know what isn’t offensive her outfit. You know what is offensive this puritanical country inserting religion and faux decency into everything. When you fly what is offensive is fat hogs cramming you into a seat, stinky people who don’t shower regularly, obnoxious drunks, obnoxious bros, etc. Let people wear what they want to or don’t want to
Yea you’re right fat men never get on a plane in a tank top and stink up all the adjacent rows. How stupid are you?
Ive traveled in my job 14 weeks a yr and have seen outfits like that numerous times. I guess now we cater to the 2% of the population and put their cocerns over the 98% of the population. Just like we started to teach everyone is a winner and give awards for last place now the majority has to capitulate to the minority because sll the women on the plane are jealous of her body. Thats her job shes proud of it and she wasnt wearing a bikini. Everyone who thinks its inappropriate just is a woman who is lazy and overweight and couldnt handle looking at what a great body looks like
Figures, blocked my comment. Dump this rag social news site too. Zuckerberg/Biden backed snowflakes
I inappropriate attire not the time or place for it for a photo shoot or the beach sure but she is half naked ass half out and although shes worked hard for the body she has doesnt mean you walk around showing it all. Ecen her gym attire in her IG feed is inappropriate There is such a thing as class and thats not hating
I couldn’t care less what other women wear or don’t wear on a plane. Go topless if you like. But please wear shorts or skirts long enough to cover any exposed orifice. Unless she brought that sweater to sit on, I wouldn’t want to be the next person in that seat. And why would you want that much skin exposed on a commercial airplane? All flight attendants I know are covered from head to toe when they fly outside of work. They know how gross those planes can be……
At least someone has taken on the job of parenting this person, and helping her to know that there is a time and a place for everything.
I would not only welcome her to the plane, I would insist she sits next to me. She looks magnificent!
