A mum claims she was “completely humiliated” by Southwest Airlines staff who said they'd kick her off the plane due to her “revealing” clothes.
Eve J Marie was travelling from Texas to Oklahoma with her son, seven, when she says she was asked to get off the plane.
The Playboy model, and influencer, alleges that airline crew deemed her animal print outfit was against the dress code policy.
But Eve argues that there was nothing wrong or “lewd” about the get-up.
She said: "When they threatened to remove me off the plane if I didn't have a change of clothes. I felt completely humiliated, embarrassed and highly offended.
“I’m an A-list member for SWA and have a credit card with the airline and I have perks that allow any person travelling with me to fly free because of my high status with the airline."

Eve added: "So even as being a loyal customer with them, I felt like the other women on the plane were judging me based on my attire and they were saying my breasts are too large. Well, that’s something I can’t help."
The 26-year-old said only one cabin crew member tried to help her by warning her security had been called.
They apparently warned her to change or risk being removed from the airline.
Eve claims a staff member apologised for the situation and gave her a work jumper to cover up her outfit.
The model added: “This flight was my layover and the first flight said nothing, so if this was truly the policy then why was I not informed before I even boarded the first flight?"

"I was scared that they would have left me stranded in Dallas when I was headed to Tulsa.
"I didn't have anything to change into so that same flight attendant gave me her work sweater to place on top of my chest.
"In the end, I was forced to sit on the plane in front of all the other passengers with her work sweater across my chest. This attendant advised me to contact corporate when I land."
Eve claims to spend around £45,000 a year on the airline and has taken 32 SWA trips in 2020.
She also adds that she has worn the same outfits on several flights.
The influencer insists her outfit doesn't breach guidelines and says it's not “lewd, obscene or patently offensive”.
"I was completely upset and embarrassed at how I was treated. Nobody could tell me what exactly their 'dress code policy' was," she said.
"I called corporate and they apologised and awarded me $100 flight credit."
She continued: “They also wanted me to send in a documented email so they can investigate more, but I have not done that yet.
"In the end, $100 credit isn't enough for the humiliation and discrimination I received on that flight. This all happened in front of my child.
"I would like better diversification training, a clear and fair dress code policy that is the same across all SWA flights, a public apology, and those responsible held accountable."
Southwest Airlines have been contacted for comment and we are awaiting a response at the time of publication.
