I saw this live on the Today show this morning. I didn’t think there was a damn thing wrong with the way she was dressed. Just my luck I always end up with the 390 pound hairy woman sitting next to me.
Here are the pictures of her EXACT same outfit. Heck, hasn’t anyone from Southwest Airlines ever been to the beach? Or watched Beach Volleyball on ESPN?
I should note though that the video on MSNBC right now has been edited from the “live” shot – in the live shot they blurred Ms. Ebbert’s crotch area when she sat down. Can’t have American TV viewers glimpsing a bit of panty now, can we?
Now I am assuming she was wearing panties on National Television. I also assume she was wearing panties on an airline flight. That being said, I believe NBC was just preventing a panty shot – I don’t think they were covering up her naked “parts” by blurring them.
But I do want to make it very, very clear right here and now – I would welcome Ms. Ebbert to sit next to me on any airplane at any time, in either this outfit, or any other outfit she chose to wear (or not wear). I swear I would not complain to Southwest Airlines (or anyone else, for that matter).
Just bring us a blanket big enough for two, and a couple cold beers, thank you very much.
In response to a TODAY Show query, the airline sent the following statement: “Southwest Airlines was responding to a concern about Ms. Ebbert’s revealing attire on the flight that day. As a compromise, we asked her to adjust her clothing to be less revealing, she complied, and she traveled as scheduled. When a concern is brought to our Employees’ attention, we address that situation directly with the Customer(s) involved in a discreet and professional manner. Fortunately, as an airline that carries approximately 96 million Customers a year, these situations are extremely rare.” The Ebberts have engaged an attorney, Martin Reed, to help them decide what to do next.
