Model Olivia Culpo Was Told To 'Cover Up' Before Boarding A Flight & People Are Conflicted

Former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo was asked to "cover up" before boarding an American Airlines flight, according to her sister.

A series of Instagram stories posted by Aurora Culpo describe how her sister Olivia was asked by American Airlines employees to put a blouse on before boarding a flight to Cabo.

"They call her up to the desk and tell her she needs to put a blouse on; otherwise, she can't get on the plane. Tell me that's not so f***** up," Aurora says in the story.

Aurora's posts show Olivia's outfit, which was a black sports bra, biker shorts and a long open cardigan.

Olivia ended up putting on her boyfriend's hoodie before boarding.

In another story, the girls share a conversation with another passenger who seems to be wearing a shirt that's more revealing than Olivia's, but who was not told to cover up.

"She looks beautiful, and they don't care, but she has to cover up," Aurora said, referring to Olivia and the other passenger.

After sharing the story, followers shared their own stories about the airline, in which they claimed to have dealt with similar scenarios.

One person said that while on an American Airlines flight to Italy on a hot summer day, they were asked to change their outfit (which was high-waisted shorts and a "regular top") or they wouldn't be allowed to board the flight.

"Outrageous. Never flew with them again after that," said the commenter.

Others disagreed and believed that the airline was right to ask Culpo to cover up.

"She should cover up…not like you're chilling at home. Cute outfit! But not for flying," one person said.

Since the incident, the sisters have posted Instagram stories poking fun at the situation.

Aurora shared an image showing the items of clothing Culpo was wearing and captioned it "get kicked off @americanair starter kit."

"A member of our team has reached out to the customer to learn more about their experience," the airline told TODAY in a statement.
