• DJ Soda was kicked off a flight from New York to Los Angeles
  • The celebrity stood "half-naked" in front of others after being told to remove her pants
  • American Airlines said their customer relations team has gotten in touch with her

A popular South Korean DJ claimed she was forced out of an American Airlines flight and was told to remove her sweatpants in front of her fellow passengers because they were deemed "inappropriate" and "offensive."

DJ Soda, whose real name is Hwang So-hee, took to Instagram and Twitter to detail the embarrassing situation she found herself in while boarding the American Airlines flight from New York to Los Angeles.

In the post, the 36-year-old wrote that she "was forced out of the plane and was harassed to take off my pants in front of the flight crews at the gate."

DJ Soda said in the post that, during her recent North American Music Tour, she never had a problem wearing the pants which displayed phrases like "F***," "F*** YOU," and "F***IN." Soda said the trousers were sponsored by clothing brand Ripndip.

In the posts, Soda said the airport authorities never raised an issue throughout the security checking, her problems only began when she boarded the plane.

"They did not have any problem with me wearing it at the time of check-in nor when I sat down at my seat," she said. "A staff suddenly approached me to pack up my belongings and leave the plane without any kind of explanation. As I was escorted off the plane, they claimed that my sweatpants were 'inappropriate' and 'offensive,' telling me that I need to take the next flight."

However, DJ Soda said she even "pleaded to stay" on the flight as she had an important meeting to attend in Los Angeles but the authorities turned down her request. The woman added that she even made a request to get changed, but the flight crew denied it. DJ Soda claimed, "what happened next was horrendous."

"I ended up taking off my pants in front of the whole crew and standing half-naked while they still refused to board me on the flight. They even sarcastically commented that I could have taken off my pants earlier," she wrote on Instagram. "When they finally let me enter, I put my pants inside out and finally sat down after an hour of delay causing inconvenience to the members of the flights on board. I was mortified and trembling in fear for the next six hours on my flight back to LA."

The woman claimed she finally resorted to wearing her pants inside out to hide the "offensive" details. "When they finally let me enter, I put my pants inside out and finally sat down after an hour of delay causing inconvenience to the members of the flight," she wrote, adding she was "mortified" and "trembling with fear" for the next six hours of the flight.

DJ Soda, who boasts of 4.3 million followers on Instagram and 126,000 followers on Twitter, said she was going to boycott American Airlines, according to South China Morning Post.

"They could have [not taken] me on the plane in the first place, asked me to leave after good reasons, cover my pants with a blanket, or go to the bathroom and change into another pair," she said. DJ Soda concluded the post by saying: "Hope this NEVER happens to anyone ever again."

American Airlines told Yahoo Lifestyle in a statement that wearing "offensive" clothing is against its policies. "During the boarding process for American Airlines Flight 306 at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), our team members informed Ms. So-hee of our policies and provided her the opportunity to change out of clothing displaying explicit language. The customer complied with requests and was allowed to continue travel, as planned, to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)," an American Airlines spokesperson told the outlet.

The airline further added it takes great care of its passengers and they are treated with dignity and respect throughout the journey, adding that its customer relations team has gotten in touch with DJ Soda to learn more about her recent encounter.
