(Scroll down for video) A professional dancer of Washington, is upset after JetBlue banned her from boarding a plane unless she changes her short pants for a longer pair.

Burlesque performer Maggie McMuffin, said that when she wanted to catch a connecting flight from Boston, Massachusetts, to Seattle, a JetBlue employee told her that the pilot will not fly the plane with her on board.

McMuffin admits that she was wearing a sweater and very short pants.

McMuffin, who had no other clothes with her, offered to tie the sweater around her waist and even asked for a blanket, but was not allowed to board the plane.

McMuffin was forced to buy another pair of pants for $22 in order to get home.

JetBlue said in a statement that the flight attendants and the pilot determined that the short pants may offend other families on the flight.

The company denied banning the dancer from the flight, saying that the crew politely asked her to change her pants and she agreed.

The company reimbursed McMuffin the cost of her new pants and offered a credit for a future flight. McMuffin wants the pilot to apologize to her.
