What should have been an enjoyable family outing turned out to be a “painful” experience for America’s Billy Bridlov. The woman claims she has been unfairly treated by Frontier City Six Flags amusement park employees simply because she was wearing super short shorts.
Billy Bridlov and her family visited the Frontier City Six Flags Amusement Park in Oklahoma City, USA at the end of April. The first hours in the park passed unimpeded, Mama Bailey tells her story on Facebook. But after two hours of fun riding, the fun family outing is derailed. “One of the park security officers grabbed my shoulder and told me my pants were too short,” writes Bailey. “I did not commit a crime and kept going to my friend because I have autism and I find it difficult to talk to the police. But she kept following me as she screamed and called for reinforcements.”
Then the “incompetent” manager of the theme park appeared, the mother said. He started hitting me Bodishamn. He told me to buy a new pair of shorts, while I am not obligated to buy anything that I don’t want. Threatened me to commit a criminal offense. I had just agreed to buy new shorts so my family could enjoy their vacation. ”According to Billy, the valves were completely blown. The manager escorted the family to the exit, but the security officer was waiting for them.” She pulled the handcuffs and asked for my ID. When we asked why, the answer was “because we are the police.” At that point, Billy decided to seize her smartphone to capture the inappropriate behavior of the cop in the video.

“The buttocks were visible.”
It was a terrible experience for Billy and her family. “I was terrified of going to jail for the shorts,” it seemed. “Your agents made my 11-year-old daughter cry hysterically. I thought her mother would be arrested.” It appears Billy eventually got off without arrest and tied her hands, but according to the mother, she was banned from the park for five years. She requests refunds of “the trauma my family suffered, just for the shorts on a hot day”. She also hired a lawyer. “Your discrimination is illegal. I am not letting this pass, we are in 2021, and we are not in high school. You are embarrassed.”
Bailey describes the lawn clothing guidelines as “vague and confusing.” Six Flags’ website states that the theme park “is in keeping with its family-friendly environment and for safety reasons” has a dress code. “Appropriate clothing must be worn at all times in the park, including appropriate shirts and shoes. Clothing or tattoos that contain offensive language or images are never permitted.”
So it wasn’t a word about the shorts, but in a statement, a Six Flags spokesperson said the agent had stopped Billy in the beginning because “her shorts showed a large part of her buttocks.” However, the fact that they eventually kicked out the woman has something to do with her behavior, according to the spokesperson. “She had many opportunities to change or cover up, but she refused,” he said. “Instead, she scolded us and exposed her butt even more.” The amusement park insists not to run it the body he did.
