Singer Aubrey O'Day accuses American Airlines flight attendant of making her take off her shirt

American Airlines says it is investigating a claim by singer Aubrey O'Day that one of its flight attendants made her turn her shirt inside out in front of the rest of the plane before allowing her to fly.

"Never have I flown & had the steward treat me like a punished lil child in timeout the entire flight," tweeted the Danity Kane singer, who says a flight attendant made her "undress in front of the entire plane because he didn't like my shirt & made me turn inside out in order to fly." She named the attendant and called for his firing.

O'Day continued, "I was SHOCKED," adding that she had to strip down to her bra in front of other passengers on the plane. "The girl next to me held up her blanket cuz she felt bad."

In a statement to USA TODAY, American spokeswoman Whitney Zastrow said the airline is "reviewing the situation, and have reached out to Ms. O'Day to get more information."

After the airline responded to her tweets asking for more details, O'Day responded, "I gave you his name. I literally have no interest in dealing with your airline any further. I'm that offended and disturbed. I wish I took @JetBlue."

It's not clear whether she is still in contact with the airline and participating in its investigation.

O'Day, 35, has not publicly elaborated as to what flight the alleged incident occurred on or what about her shirt was offensive to the flight attendant.

One Twitter user claimed the singer's shirt had nude bodies on it and was "extremely vulgar" and another took issue with O'Day's account of events, tweeting, "She's lying! There are a bunch of us that were on the plane that can vouch for your amazing crew."
