US mom thrown out of water park for wearing 'too sexy' bikini

ANI  |  London 

A mother in the US was thrown out of a water park by the police because they felt that the bikini she wore was 'too sexy'.

Madelyn Scheaffer visited Aventure Oasis in Independence, Missouri, with her 14-year-old daughter on Tuesday.

But when she changed into a skimpy string bikini, the staff ordered her to cover up, the Sun reported.

After the 43-year-old refused to do so, employees called the police to escort her off the premises.

Scheaffer told the publication that as soon as she arrived, two teenage female employees came up and told her that she needed to cover up as her swim suit was inappropriate.

She explained that they insisted that it was a family park and asked her to either cover up or leave.

She challenged the employees to call the police and 15 minutes later officers arrived to throw her out.

She complained that there were plenty of 15-18 year old girls at the park, who wore equally revealing swim suits but she was targeted because of her age and looks.

However, city bosses have denied any such allegations and insisted that it is up to the water park manager to decide if people's attire is appropriate.
