Family outraged after trip to Disneyland was ruined when an employee told mom,Melissa Behnken, she was exposing too much cleavage.
Behnken claimed a park employee out of nowhere approached her and asked her to cover up because what she was wearing showed too much of her chest, according to the Daily Mail.
“This gentleman out of nowhere comes up to me and just says, ‘You need to pull your top up,'” Behnken told KGTV. “I was looking at him like, ‘Excuse me? Are you serious?'”
“I guess women with large chests are expected to wear turtlenecks their whole lives,” Behnken said.
They had gone to Disney for a trip as a celebration of her husband returning home from deployment. It was their first family vacation. The family trip was ultimately ruined, the mother said.
When the mom got home she filed a formal complaint with the park and the Disney corporation. In the week that followed, Disney offered an apology on behalf of the employee.
The mom said she thought the company would take the apology a step further.
“Maybe they need to do more exclusive training on what is OK to say to people that come there,” she suggested, according to the Daily Mail.
Disneyland reportedly has a policy deeming clothing that “exposes excessive portions of the skin” as inappropriate for the family-friendly park, though Behnken’s apparel barely showed any cleavage at all, as evident in the family’s pictures from their trip.
