Update: The viral video and social media post from a Colorado mom accusing Six Flags Frontier City of harassing her and her daughter apparently didn’t tell the whole story.
In a statement to McClatchy News, Six Flags gave their side of the story.
”The guest was initially stopped because her shorts exposed a significant portion of her buttocks,” Six Flags said. “She was given multiple opportunities to change or cover up, but refused. Instead, she responded with profanity and offensive conduct, including further exposing her buttocks. The guest was removed from the park after she refused to stop her unruly and offensive behavior, targeted at the police and other park guests. The video clip this guest has posted on the internet does not fully portray her behavior during this incident.”
Bailey Breedlove’s video of the interaction did not show her behavior nor her outfit while standing up.
The theme park also stated, “that guests wear attire appropriate for our family-friendly environment and expect guests to behave in a family-friendly manner. Disruptive or offensive behavior or the use of profanity or abusive language or gestures will not be tolerated and may result in a guest being removed from the park.”
A woman in Oklahoma claimed that she was kicked out of the Six Flags Frontier City theme park because her shorts were “too short.”
“We were having fun, enjoying rides and spending money on what we thought was going to be a great vacation spot,” said Bailey Breedlove, who visited the park in late April.
Breedlove, who claims she is autistic, was approached by an “officer” and reprimanded for her shorts.
“[I] proceeded to walk to my boyfriend as I am autistic and have a hard time talking to officers,” she recounted.
Breedlove was told she needed to buy new shorts and was allegedly threatened with “criminal trespassing” before she was “pushed and escorted towards the entrance.”
According to Breedlove, one officer claimed they were “the police” and “pulled out her cuffs and demanded ID.”
“Your officers had my 11 year old daughter crying hysterically thinking her mother was about to be arrested,” wrote Breedlove in her Facebook post, obtained by Newsweek. “I paid a lot of money at your park for our family vacation, and I believe I deserve a refund for the trauma caused to my family over a pair of shorts on a hot day.”
The Oklahoma City Police Department has denied that the “officers” involved were part of their agency, according to Breedlove.
