No one likes to be on a plane for 20+ hours, but now young women must be cautious flying. Not because of terrorism, but from creepy old men who might feel you up without your consent.
Chelsea Schiffel, a 15-year-old Australian girl was flying from LA to Sydney and claimed she was groped by an older man. What did the airline say? According to News9, United shrugged it off because Chelsea was wearing short shorts. That doesn’t mean that anyone, especially a 15-year-old, should be touched inappropriately by anyone.
Chelsea alleged that the older man touched her breasts twice before she told her mother. She complained to the crew and requested a different seat but the airline did nothing and asked them to return to their seats.
“Chelsea repeatedly moved in and out of her seat, crawling over the other customer who was attempting to sleep, and that your daughter wore extremely short shorts,” the airline said in a letter as if United believes that justifies being groped.
A letter from United claimed that her choice in clothing might have been to blame. The family tried to press charges but with no proof of the incident, it became hard to file a suit against the airline.
