A writer from The Huffington Post told the young women of the Southeastern Conference to “cover up” in a Tuesday morning column that has since been deleted.
Rebecca Walden, the writer, attended Alabama’s game against USC in Arlington and she was appalled by the way Bama’s female fans were dressed.
“What we didn’t want, and what we never did, was to show up for a college football game looking like we belonged in a Victoria’s Secret fashion show,” Walden wrote. “I wished I could have wrapped my elephant scarf around one of you, teetering around on stilettos with your bra straps exposed and operating under the misguided notion that you looked irresistible.”
A little bit more from Walden’s now-removed column:
That lucky shaker tucked into the back of your on trend boot?
The team logo you’re sporting on your cheek?
The Greek letters sticker on your shirt declaring the sorority to which you belong and your loyalty to your team?
All rendered classless by those ill covered curves you’ve made sure are on full display.”
Needless to say, it didn’t go over well:
Personally, I don’t have one single problem with the way young women in the SEC dress. In fact, I’m a big fan of it. Huge supporter of their brand and everything they’ve got going on.
