A burlesque dancer from Seattle says she felt "disrespected"after she was not allowed to board a JetBlue plane because her shorts were too short.

Maggie McMuffin told Seattle’s KING 5 TV she was standing at the gate when an airline official told her she had to put something else on or she would not be allowed on the flight because her attire might offend families on the flight.

McMuffin ended up buying pajama pants in order to get home. JetBlue says they support the decision, but did reimburse McMuffin for the cost of the new attire and gave her $162 in future flight credit.

Was this fair? Jeff Wagner discussed Tuesday. Listen above in your Soundcloud player.
