A Gold Coast woman has slammed Jetstar for “slut shaming her” when they asked her to cover up. 

Shoshana Strykert, 28, posted her ordeal on Facebook, saying she was humiliated when a flight attendant told her what she was wearing was inappropriate.

The outfit in question was a black cropped t shirt, loose beige culottes and sandals.

“When I got onto the plane … tired and stress out … the flight attendant told me that what I was wearing was inappropriate,” Ms Strykert said in a Facebook post.

The flight attendant asked her “do you see any men walking around with their shirts off?” before asking her to cover up with a blanket or put on a t-shirt.

“Everybody on the plane was looking at me I was so embarrassed and shocked,” Ms Strykert said. “A woman sitting behind me, felt sorry for me so she offered me her jacket.”

To make things worse, when Shoshana complained, she didn’t receive an apology – instead a $50 Jetstar voucher.

She replied to the company via her Facebook post:

“Thank you Jetstar, for slut shaming me and then offering me this in return. I’m so disgusted,” she wrote.

“My outfit was beyond casual … There’s really no excuse for what she did.”

Jetstar have confirmed to News.com.au they are investigating the situation.
