Woman Claims She Was Kicked Out of Pool for Inappropriate Swimsuit
A woman in Tennessee is claiming that she was asked to leave the pool at her apartment complex because her swimsuit was deemed inappropriate.
Tori Jenkins says, "She basically told me that if I didn't have kids, I wouldn't understand. If her kids were at the pool she wouldn't want me in that swimsuit, how inappropriate I looked."
Tyler Newman, her fiance, went with her to speak with an employee in private. "She was told that her body because it's built more curvy than others, is too inappropriate for children to be around," Newman. said. "She was told there are a lot of teenage boys in this complex, and you don't need to excite them."
The apartment complex released this statement:
Smoky Crossing is a welcoming family community. Multiple residents within our community complained and expressed concerns regarding Ms. Jenks' swimwear. In accordance with our pool policies, which are posted near the swimming area, one of our leasing consultants requested Ms. Jenks wrap a towel around herself when she was walking around the pool.
Ms. Jenkins was never asked to leave the pool. In addition, our leasing agent did not state that Ms. Jenkins swimwear would excite teenage boys.
Ms. Jenkins and Mr. Newman are valued members of our community. However, we feel it is inappropriate to equate requesting Ms. Jenkins to cover up with sexual harassment or rape culture. Smoky Crossing denounces harassment in all forms.
