As Ray Lin Howard boarded the flight wearing biker shorts and a crop top, a flight attendant allegedly harassed her for her attire. Airport police officers were seen escorting Lin Howard through the airport.
In a video shared online, she said:
“I was harassed about my outfit — I put my shirt back on. They asked me to put my shirt back on. [So] I put my shirt back on, and then, they approached me again, saying that I can’t wear this, my stomach is showing — and it’s inappropriate.”
After the flight attendants insisted that Ray Lin Howard cover herself up, the TikToker claimed to have done so by putting a leopard print shirt over herself, but that did not suffice.
She also stated that she was wearing a sports bra underneath, which she proved. However, airport authorities found their way to her again as flight officials approached her for the third time.

Howard shared a comment by another passenger who wrote, “I was on your flight and the only voice I heard raised at all was the [flight] attendant. This was f’d up. I am glad they let you go and you made your performance. I sent in a complaint to the airline about your being escorted off too.”
