‘Next Time I Will Wear Only Jeans and a Scarf’: Stars React to United Kicking Off Young Passenger Wearing Leggings

Celebrities are speaking out following the news that United Airlines refused to let girls onto a flight because they were wearing leggings.

Shannon Watts, a mother-of-five from Colorado and founder of movement Moms Demand Action, shared on Twitter Sunday that young passengers boarding a flight from Denver to Minneapolis were told they could not board the plane unless they changed their outfits.

Although some were allowed onto the plane after modifying or changing their outfits, she tweeted that two girls were not allowed on the flight. Of the group, she noted that one was about 10-year-old. Watts asked United for an explanation.

United responded to Watts on Twitter, writing that they “have the right to refuse transport for passengers who are barefoot or not properly clothed.” They later clarified that the girls in question were “pass travelers,” or travelers flying on comped or discounted tickets, typically reserved for employees and their family members. United explained that they have a stricter dress code for pass travelers as they are representing the United brand.

Still, stars like Chrissy Teigen and William Shatner joined the list of people speaking out against United’s confusing policy on Twitter.

“I have flown united before with literally no pants on. Just a top as a dress,” wrote Teigen, 31. “Next time I will wear only jeans and a scarf.”

Patricia Arquette also shared her thoughts on Twitter.

“Why aren’t you allowing girls to wear leggings on flights?” she wrote. “Who is your gate agent policing girls clothing? “Was there something’s strange about all these girls leggings? Do U understand U have just made at least half UR customers very unhappy?”

“Leggings are business attire for 10 year olds. Their business is being children,” the actress continued. “Y did dad board wearing shorts? Shorts R only business attire 4 Angus Young.”

“Turns out United bans leggings, torn jeans, and shorter shorts for free employee pass tickets. Still @united should update policy,” she added.

Actor Andy Richter wrote, “I have flown numerous times while displaying an egregious mooseknuckle. What’s a male over 10 have to do to get noticed?”

Comedian Sarah Silverman said that she was not going to fly on the airline for her upcoming tour.

“I fly a LOT,” she wrote. “About to go on tour all April and changing all my @united flights to other airlines.”

Despite the outcry, United held firm that they were following policy.

“The passengers this morning were United pass riders who were not in compliance with our dress code policy for company benefit travel,” the airline responded.

Barb Jungr On Kicking Off 2015 With Her ‘Mad About The Boy And No Regrets’ Cabaret Show In New York

Barb Jungr likens her show, “Mad About The Boy And No Regrets,” to the act of renewal and, more specifically, “shedding one’s skin,” so it’s only appropriate that her New York engagement kick off at the start of 2015.

When she hits the stage of venerable Manhattan nightspot 54 Below on Jan. 2, the British singer-songwriter, 60, will tackle songs by Bruce Springsteen, Noel Coward, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, among others. Still, she says anyone seeking inspiration as far as resolutions or explicit messages are concerned would be better served elsewhere.

“I don’t ever want to feel that I’ve become a message bearer, other than…I would like there to be joy in the world through the medium of what I do as a musician and an artist,” Jungr told The Huffington Post in an interview. “By excavating what we excavate, we allow the possibility that we can see the whole landscape. “

Jungr, who is of both Czech and German descent, has been labeled a chansonnière in Europe, but her musical interpretations often defy classification stateside. While she was hailed as the “high priestess of cabaret” by Time Out New York, Jungr makes it clear that her aspirations extend into other genres, too.

“I think I’m a cabaret artist and a jazz singer,” she said. “Because I improvise, re-harmonize [and] I deal with music in a certain way, my feet are in jazz. But my sensibility is in cabaret.”

In November 2014, Jungr brought another show, “Hard Rain,” to New York’s 59E59 Theater. Jungr says she sees that show, hailed by The New York Times for its “astounding emotional range,” and her album of the same name as the politically-edged counterparts to “Mad About The Boy,” which was conceived prior to “Hard Rain” and features a fearlessly romantic, though unsentimental, tone.

As both shows evidence, Jungr is perhaps best known for her interpretations of Dylan’s songs. Regarding her tendency to emphasize material written by male singer-songwriters, she noted, “I get to understand things that I don’t necessarily understand. It’s the word made fresh. It’s a revelation to me.“

Above all, Jungr, who says she’s a fan of Eliza Carthy, Gillian Welch and Meghan Trainor among other contemporary female performers, favors material with an edge, even if she doesn’t like to “intellectualize” her set lists too much beforehand.

“I like songs that strip away the stuff, so that when you’re singing them, you access something that goes beyond words and people can also access within themselves — who knows what it is? It’s best we don’t ever try and nail that down,” she said. “But I like a bit of bite to the work. I want a little bit of kicking, a little bit of irreverence. I want a little bit of knickers off and here’s my backside.”

Barb Jungr’s “Mad About The Boy And No Regrets” plays New York’s 54 Below on Jan. 2-4. Head here for more information.
