Hwang So Hee (황소희) , or better known by her stage name DJ Soda, sparked a frenzy online a couple of weeks ago over the humiliating incident she encountered prior to boarding her American Airlines flight. The airline carrier released a statement afterwards, explaining that the company’s policies “prohibit offensive clothing” while on board.
In a more recent update on the drama, the EDM artiste’s label revealed to a media outlet that American Airlines has reached out to them. They also apologised to DJ Soda for the recent incident that she encountered. According to the agency, they received an email from the airline company on 28th April – two days after the Korean celeb posted on her social media about her terrible experience.
The company’s representative added by writing, “There were some opinions against her wearing the (controversial) sweatpants in the first place. The DJ also admits that she should have been aware of how others around her would react, but we didn’t have any issues with the said outfit before with American Airlines.”
“Besides, the only issue we had with American Airlines was that the employee had forced her to get off the plane without giving any explanations or the chance for her to get changed before kicking her off. However, we won’t be taking any further actions after receiving an apology from the company,” they concluded their statement.
For those who are curious, DJ Soda is currently in the US for her “Starlight Tour”.
