Report: Don’t Wear Short-Shorts To Frontier City

In case you missed it, one of the big stories to emerge out of Oklahoma this week has to do with Bailey Breedlove – a mom from Colorado who looks 15, has autism, and was apparently kicked out of Frontier City for wearing short-shorts.

The story went viral in the social media realm after Bailey shared a video of her altercation with Frontier City security. In her Instagram post, she accused the park's management of "body shaming," making her daughter cry, and basically ruining her family vacation in Oklahoma City.

Check this out:

First of all, I've learned over the years not to trust everything I see and hear on social media. I'm sure there's another side, or should I say cheek, to this story that we're not seeing.

That being said, the big story here should be a Colorado family planned a vacation to Frontier City!!! How did that happen?

"What should we do for vacation? Go sking? Mountain climbing? White water rafting?"

"How about we hit up Frontier City in Oklahoma City?"

Seriously, did they got lost and think they were at Six Flags over Texas, or did those Kevin Stitt Corona-tourism ads finally work on someone?? Either way, the OKC Chamber of Commerce may want to connect with Bailey and promote that one.

Anyway, is there a better view of these shorts so we can more accurately determine if they were long enough? Of course, there is...

Are those jorts too revealing for a family-friendly amusement park in Oklahoma City? I haven't been to Frontier City ever since I was kicked out of the park for standing up on the Wild Cat when I was 16, but I'd say probably so. Then again, in this day and age of skin-tight yoga pants, I'm starting to wonder if pants will even be a requirement at the end of this decade. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Intrigued by all the clickable possibilities that a story about a photogenic mom from Colorado with autism being body shamed at a theme park for wearing short-shorts had to offer, the international tabloid clickbait circuit jumped on the story like they were Daisy Duke sliding inside the General Lee. The NY Post, Daily Mail, IBT, and basically every other clickbait outlet with a pageview quota to fill filed a report.

Here's a video clip from Inside Edition:

As I mentioned above, I'm always a bit skeptical about these stories when they go viral. In this case, I feel like we're only getting Bailey's very one-sided interpretation of what happened. Six Flags / Frontier City's statement would confirm that.

Here's what they said:

In a statement to McClatchy News, Six Flags said it asks “that guests wear attire appropriate for our family-friendly environment and expect guests to behave in a family-friendly manner. Disruptive or offensive behavior or the use of profanity or abusive language or gestures will not be tolerated and may result in a guest being removed from the park.”

Breedlove used offensive language during the incident at the park, which was not shown in the video, Six Flags said.

”The guest was initially stopped because her shorts exposed a significant portion of her buttocks,” the theme park said in a statement. “She was given multiple opportunities to change or cover up, but refused. Instead, she responded with profanity and offensive conduct, including further exposing her buttocks. The guest was removed from the park after she refused to stop her unruly and offensive behavior, targeted at the police and other park guests. The video clip this guest has posted on the internet does not fully portray her behavior during this incident.”

Anyway, I guess I should wrap this up and focus on more important things like taking a nap. I hope Bailey recovers from the trauma of being kicked out of an amusement park for not complying with their dress code, and I hope Frontier City recovers from the trauma of having every national media outlet refer to them as Six Flags.
