Pro-surfer, Anastasia Ashley, is claiming an upscale Newport Beach restaurant discriminated against her for wearing jeans short-shorts to lunch.
Ashley posted a photo to Instagram showing off the offending shorts after she says she was discriminated against by Gulfstream restaurant over the garment being too revealing.
She wrote in her post: “My shorts aren’t too short and I think as a woman I can choose the shorts I want to wear and I don’t need a restaurant to dress me and tell me what is appropriate or not.” The surf star from San Clemente is now riding a wave of attention on social media with hundreds of comments. There has been support and backlash. “She looks tasteful she looks stylish. There’s nothing wrong with what she’s wearing,” Sarah Cameron said. Celeste Brill said: “I just don’t think it’s appropriate, especially like in restaurants where people are eating and stuff. Kids could maybe walk in.” h/t cbslocal.losangeles
A website connected to the restaurant states the attire policy is: “For men and women, we request you avoid beach wear or active wear that is overly revealing.”
The eatery’s general manager, who acknowledged that Ashley was asked to cover up because of her clothing, said that she complied and seemed happy.
