A Texas doctor claims that a US airline American Airlines made her cover herself before she was allowed to fly.
Tisha Rowe, who runs family medicine in Houston, had already been on the plane in Kingston, Jamaica, with her 8-year-old son Chase. But before the plane was scheduled to take off to Miami, a flight attendant pulled her aside and asked her to "plan for a conversation," Rowe told Twitter .

Once from the plane, Rowe says that the airline asked her if she had a jacket to cover up the sleeveless skirt she had at the airport. When she said she didn't, American Airlines companion told her she would just be reset on a condition, Rowe says.
"When I defended my outfit, I was threatened not to get back on the plane unless I went down the aisle wrapped in a blanket," she wrote on Twitter.
Rowe followed, though she was "humiliated," she told Buzzfeed News.
"I felt powerless," she told the outlet. "There was nothing I could do at that moment other than giving up my money and seat to defend my position as I was just right."
Rowe shared the story of social media again, adding that she thought race played a role in the companion's decision to put her out.
"When I defended my outfit, I was threatened not to get back on the plane unless I went down the aisle of a carpet."
"We are policed to be black," she wrote on Facebook, per a screen grab shared by Buzzfeed News. "Our bodies are over-sexualized as women, and we need to adapt to make everyone around us comfortable. See white women with much shorter shorts folding a plane without a glance of eye."
Rowe echoes allegations of discrimination on Twitter.

Rowe's post has later received great support on social media, with some Twitter users calling the situation "full bs" and "obvious discrimination."
"If American Airlines wanted passengers from Jamaica to Florida in June to wear snowmobiles, then they should put them in their contract," said Rowe's lawyer, Geoffrey Berg, Buzzfeed News.
