(Scroll down for video) A young woman was surprised when she was told to leave from a Michigan shopping mall due to her clothing.

20-year-old Hannah Pewee of Grand Rapids, said that she had no idea that the Woodland Mall, had modesty rules.

Pewee was wearing a sleeveless undershirt and shorts as the temperature soared above 90 degrees on Saturday.

Suddenly, security guards approached her and ordered her to leave to her wearing provocative clothes.

Pewee believes that she was escorted out of the mall after another shopper complained about her clothes.

“As many of you know, it is 90 degrees outside today in West Michigan. Aka, really hot. So, of course, I decided to dress for the weather: shorts and a tank top.

“But apparently, how I was dressed was too slutty for the public, as I was kicked out of the Woodland Mall today. Yup. Apparently some anonymous person reported me to MALL SECURITY for inappropriate dress and I was kicked out.

“Never mind that within a one foot radius there were plenty of girls dressed just like me, since it’s 90 degrees outside. I am so angry right now I’m shaking. I felt so embarrassed. I almost cried. All because a stranger didn’t like how I dressed.

“The Woodland Mall should be ashamed of themselves, as well as that anonymous complainer. It’s my body, and it’s hot outside! I’m not going to show up in jeans and a sweater, sorry.

“Don’t like it? Look away! I was out having a fun time with my sister and next thing I know, I’m out on the street. Slut-shaming how girls are dressed is deplorable and outdated, and it needs to stop,” Pewee wrote on Facebook along with a picture of how she was dressed.

After Pewee’s post caused a firestorm across the country, the Woodland shopping mall apologized to the woman.

“We have apologized to Hannah and we apologize to our community. It is never our intention to shame or embarrass anyone. We’re going to make sure that everyone on our team is aware of how to handle situations like this in the future. We dropped the ball on this one,” a spokesperson for the shopping mall wrote on Facebook.
