A woman has shared a video of herself being forced to step on a baggage scale before boarding a flight. The video, which has been viewed over 1.6 million times on TikTok, shows the woman standing on the scale in front of other passengers. She appears visibly embarrassed and uncomfortable.
The woman, who has not been identified, said that she was asked to step on the scale because the airline needed to know her weight for safety reasons. She said that she was “mortified” by the experience and that she felt like she was being treated like luggage.
The video has sparked outrage on social media, with many people criticizing the airline for its treatment of the woman. Some people have also pointed out that the airline’s policy of weighing passengers before boarding flights is discriminatory against plus-size people.
The airline has since apologized for the incident, saying that it was “an isolated event” and that it does not have a policy of weighing passengers before boarding flights. The airline also said that it is “committed to providing a safe and comfortable travel experience for all of our customers.”
This incident is a reminder of the discrimination that plus-size people face on a daily basis. It is important to remember that everyone deserves to be treated with respect, regardless of their size.
