Woodland Mall in Kentwood, Michigan made Hannah Pewee leave because they claimed her outfit was inappropriate. Meanwhile, the posts on Woodland Mall's Facebook page feature posts advertising tank tops.
Pewee’s Facebook post about the incident has been shared more than 7,000 times. “I was out having a fun time with my sister and next thing I know, I’m out on the street,” Pewee wrote in the post. “Slut-shaming how girls are dressed is deplorable and outdated, and it needs to stop.” She later followed up with another post, writing she had spoken with management at the Woodland Mall, who apologized and told her “they’re going to revise their clothing policy on their website so it is clearer what is and isn’t acceptable.”
The mall issued a statement, which read:
We apologized to the shopper and the public for the way that this was handled. We've already spoken to her and are working to make things right. We work to create a fun and safe shopping and dining destination but failed to deliver on that message for this shopper. We're working internally to make sure we fully deliver on excellent experiences at our Mall immediately.
