In the scorching summer heat that’s shining down over Tennessee at the minute, Tori Jenkins went to take a dip in her appartment’s swimming pool but what happened next shook her to the core.
Not that it matters, but dressed in a very average and modest swimming suit, Tori was asked to leave the pool because her outfit might ‘excite teenage boys’.
Not only was she told to leave but she was also apparently made to pose for photos so that she could understand why her choice of bathing suit was wrong.
As you can probably imagine, her boyfriend, Tyler Newman, was absolutely raging about the whole thing and posted to Facebook explaining everything that had happened.
He stated that they had been at the pool, which they pay for access to, for just three minutes when they were told of complaints about Tori’s attire.
I have never really witnessed sexual harassment and/or "rape culture" until today with Smoky Crossing Apartments. Today…
The lengthy post stated:
I’ve never seen my fiancée so embarrassed to the point where she can’t even look her best friends in the face.
I’ve never seen her cry like she did in our apartment today.
Never seen her want to be isolated like that. All because some ignorant assholes think they can police the size and shape of her body. I’ve never seen a woman so disrespected.
MY POINT: My fiancée being told she should cover up on a 90 degree day in our own apartment pool because she will ‘excite teenage boys’ is bullshit. I will not stand for this.
Disgusting behaviour all round. How on earth are things like this happening in 2017?
