Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action, tweeted about the issue and demanded answers.

“1) 3 girls inspected for wearing perfectly acceptable leggings. 2 not allowed to board. I don’t care what kind of passengers they were,” Watts tweeted.


The airline responded that the group of girls were “pass riders,” meaning they were family members and or friends of the airline’s employees whose flights were comped or discounted, and that they have a policy for those kind of passengers that requires attire representative of the company, People magazine reported.

“The passengers this morning were United pass riders who were not in compliance with our dress code policy for company benefit travel,” United tweeted.


However, that didn’t stop celebrities from blasting the airline.

“@united Leggings are business attire for 10 year olds. Their business is being children,” Patricia Arquette tweeted.
