Former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo was asked to cover up before a flight with American Airlines, according to the 29-year-old’s sister Aurora Culpo.

Aurora’s Instagram stories reportedly show the girls at an airport before their flight to Cabo San Lucas on Thursday, following the incident. Olivia, dressed in a bralette, bike shorts, and a long cardigan, was apparently told by an airline employee to “put a blouse on.”

Aurora called the employee’s actions “f***ed up” and said her sister’s clothing was not “inappropriate” or “offensive.”

“Look at her outfit. She looks cute. She looks appropriate,” Aurora said in the video. “They call her up to the desk and tell her that she needs to put a blouse on, otherwise she can’t get on the plane. Tell me is that not so f***ed up.”

In the video clip, Olivia complies, covering up with a grey hoodie “while comparing her original outfit to another passenger in a similar look,” Page Six reported.

The other passenger, a woman also wearing a bra, is seen shrugging her shoulders over her admittedly revealing top. “That’s weird,” she said of American Airlines’ apparent request to Olivia.

Olivia re-posted Aurora’s Instagram posts to her own account with the caption, “Leave it to Aurora to cause a scene. Hide me.”

According to Page Six, American Airlines’ dress code “is a bit vague, requiring that passengers simply, ‘Dress appropriately’ adding that ‘bare feet or offensive clothing aren’t allowed.'”

Aurora apparently took the request from American Airlines to be sexist, evidenced by a mocking post she published to her Instagram stories on Monday.

“[American Airlines] Cabo to LA Canceled,” she captioned a post. “Someone’s capri pants must have given the flight attendant a b*ner. I hope they’re stoning her in the lounge #satanstems.”

In a far more dramatic display, actress Ashley Judd in 2017 flipped over an airport worker calling her “sweetheart” and complimenting her dress. The Daily Wire reported at the time:

“I was coming through security and a guy said ‘Hey, sweetheart,’” whined Judd. “And I said ‘I’m not your sweetheart. I am your client.’”

[…] “Then when I was setting my things out he said, ‘hey, nice dress.”

The actress claims the man “touched” her as he grabbed her belongings and placed them on what can only be assumed to have been a conveyer belt.

“I didn’t see him touch anybody else,” she accused. “And I turned around and I said ‘that was unnecessary. … By that time, you know, my skin was burning, my feet are burning. It’s so hard to continue to set these boundaries when someone continues to push.”
