Woman Accuses Female Pilot Of 'Mansplaining' The United Leggings Controversy

By Mark Pygas

Brianna Wu is a video game developer running for Congress in Massachusetts' 8th District. Like many people, she took to Twitter on Sunday following the controversy surrounding United Airline's decision to prevent two young girls from boarding a flight because they were wearing leggings. 

United justified the strict dress code enforcement because the fliers were United pass travelers and were subject to a different set of rules. Why? Because they're dependents of United Employees, or United Employees themselves, who can board planes for free on a stand-by basis. 

Wu was one of many that threatened to boycott the company following the controversy.
