Woman fuming as Wetherspoons refuses to serve her due to inappropriate top
A woman says she was kicked out of a Wetherspoons pub due to her outfit choice.
Mollie Wood claims a male manager branded her top “inappropriate” as her cleavage was “equal to a man being shirtless”.
During the 28C heatwave on Sunday, she was wearing a black halter-neck crop top with a midi-length skirt when she was allowed into the boozer by a female bouncer.
But after trying to get served, the 20-year-old claims a 30-something employee refused to take her order.
Her friend Amy Lee, 20, also says she was denied drinks because of her “unsuitable” attire.
The pair were disappointed by the worker at The Back of Beyond pub in Reading, Berks, where they visited to grab food after watching England beat Croatia 1-0 in the opening Euro 2020 match.
Mollie, who lives in Reading, said: "We got half-way walking through the pub when a male manager shouted for us to stop.
"He said 'You can't come in here, you're dressed really inappropriately and it isn't suitable. You can't be wearing a top like that'."
When the punter questioned him about what was "inappropriate" about her attire, he apparently told her it was "because that's like a man being topless and we've been kicking topless men out all day”.
She said: "I was just really embarrassed…
"We'd been in four pubs earlier that day and never been denied entry.
"I told him how sexist it was to compare me to a topless man. I was wearing a top. I wasn't topless."
Mollie did some research to find out if Wetherspoons has a dress code but failed to find anything about crop tops being banned.
She decided to return to the pub to complain to the manager – but says she was met with rudeness.
The punter said: "He was holding the bridge of his nose and huffing, and he turned his back to us when we were speaking about it."
Unsatisfied by this response, Mollie and Amy took to TikTok to talk about their experience.
In a video that’s been viewed 355,000 times, the duo accused the employee of “sexualising” them for having boobs.
Mollie said: “Why are cleavage and boobs inappropriate? They’re literally for children…
"I've got a larger chest. Even if I wore a turtleneck you'd still see a very noticeable shape.
"My boobs are always going to show because I have them and there's nothing I can do about that."
The women have received plenty of support since sharing their story online.

One commenter said: “You’ve dressed weather appropriate. I don’t see the issue.”
Another agreed: “I’m so sorry this happened, you both look gorgeous girls.”
And a third added: “Some people need to grow up! What do they expect you to wear in 26C?”
