Sarah Silverman, Seth Rogen, William Shatner and more A-listers are fighting back against United Airlines’ recent leggings controversy.
In case you missed it, the airline landed in hot water on Sunday after gate agents refused to allow three young girls to board their flight because they were wearing leggings. According to Jonathan Guerin, a spokesperson for United Airlines, the agents “have the right to refuse passengers who are not properly clothed via our Contract of Carriage.”
Guerin added: “Our regular passengers are not going to be denied boarding because they are wearing leggings or yoga pants. But when flying as a pass traveler, we require this pass travelers to follow rules, and that is one of those rules.”
Silverman took to Twitter to push the airline on their policies.
“Hey @united I fly a LOT. About to go on tour all April and changing all my @united flights to other airlines,” she wrote.
