In an open letter to the Australian airline posted on Facebook, Shoshana Strykert claimed that the incident took place on a February. 8 flight to Brisbane, on the way to visit her mother in the hospital.

“The flight attendant told me that what I wore was inappropriate,” Strykert wrote in February. 11 post. “They told me, ‘you see all the men walk around with their shirts off?'”

Strykert went on to claim that the Jetstar staffer continued to chide her, with the question of whether they had a T-shirt to put on in the place, and offered her a blanket.

“Everyone in the plane was looking at me I was so ashamed and shocked. A woman sitting behind me, felt sorry for me so she offered me her jacket,” Strykert wrote, online. ‘Thank you, Jetstar, for slut shaming me and then she gave me this back. I am so sick.”
