A full-figured woman wearing a string bikini was kicked out of Adventure Oasis Water Park in Independence, Missouri after refusing to cover up. Madelyn Sheaffer, 43, was visiting the water park with her mother, daughter, nieces and nephew. While she was in the pool with two of the children, staff approached her and asked her to put on shorts because they felt that her bikini bottom was too small. She asked to speak to a supervisor; he told her to cover up or leave.
She refused and asked for the police to be called so she could file a complaint. They arrived and escorted her out. Sheaffer claims she is the victim of age discrimination as younger women wearing similar bikinis were not asked to cover themselves.
