A 22-year-old woman has taken to social media to reveal that a Disney World employee allegedly gave her a T-shirt to wear because she wasn't wearing an "appropriate" top.
On Friday, Alyssa Schuller shared a video to TikTok documenting her experience while visiting Epcot at Disney World in Orlando, Fla. The short video quickly went viral, racking up more than 3.7 million views.
In the clip, Schuller explains in text that a Disney World employee was escorting her to receive a free T-shirt to change into.
"It's true, guys," the text on screen reads reads. "Getting escorted to a free shirt because mine 'isn't appropriate.'"
Schueller briefly pans the camera toward her black, bikini-style crop top and then films herself wearing the T-shirt given to her by the park.
Schuller commented on her own video, explaining she had been enjoying a separate Disney World park on the same day prior to the incident.
"FYI, I was at Animal Kingdom all morning without an issue. Went to Epcot and this happened. Went back to Animal Kingdom and had no issue once again," Schueller wrote. "If Disney wants to implement a dress code, then they need to do that. But the inconsistency? Please."
Schuller's video sparked a debate among viewers about dress codes and their direct correlation to sexism.
"Oh, look! Misogyny!" someone commented.
"Why does it matter what she's wearing if she's paying a fortune to get into the park anyway," one person wrote. "I don't see anything wrong with your outfit."
Someone else pointed out that one of Disney's most renowned characters wears nothing but a bra, and therefore should negate any dress code imposed on women.
"Women should dress however they want, wherever they want," they commented. "Ariel literally wears a seashell bra, so how is this inappropriate?"
Others argued that since Disney World is an establishment for families and children, dressing modestly should come with the territory.
"Maybe wear an actual shirt then?" someone wrote. "It's literally a children's park."
"Why would you wear that to Disney anyway?" added another. " It's known for being a pure, family-focused environment. Wear that to the bar later."
"Why are you dressed like you're going to a club though? It's Disney," someone else sounded off.
Some viewers informed Schuller that Disney World does have a dress code in place. According to Disney World's website, guests can be denied admittance or be removed from the park for wearing clothing that "is considered inappropriate or attire that could detract from the experience of other guests."
It specifically highlights that "clothing which, by nature, exposes excessive portions of the skin that may be viewed as inappropriate for a family environment," may result in refusal of attendance.
"Disney has many rules," one TikTok user wrote.. "If you go, accept the rules. Don't like them? Don't go."
"They have a dress code," commented another. "This one is on you, bestie."
