Woman Asked To Leave Mall Because Of Dress

Kymberly Clem, 20, says she walked into the Richmond Mall Saturday but was soon escorted out all because of her dress.

"I was walking through and 10 minutes after I was there, the security guard approached me, asked me to step aside, made me completely do a turn around while he stared me up and down and then asked me to leave because my outfit was too provocative and people's husbands was (sic) looking at me," says Clem.

Clem says she bought the dress at the mall just the day before. She says she's worn more revealing clothing before to the mall, but this is the first time she's been kicked out.

Clem now wants answers and says she's been wrongly turned away.

27 NEWSFIRST tried contacting the Richmond Mall for comment, but those requests were denied.

There's no word yet if Clem plans to pursue any action against the mall.

Was the dress worn by a woman recently kicked out of the Richmond Mall inappropriate for the mall?

    I looked at her picture and I fully agree. Nothing provocative. She is a beautiful young woman and wife's can't stand to see what they were years ago.

    The dress was riding up while she was walking and showing a thong. I was there and saw it myself, she shouldn't be wearing that.

    There is nothing wrong with that dress, and if she bought it at THAT SPECIFIC MALL, there should be absolutely no problem with her wearing while there. Now, if it was lingerie or something, that would be different. But it's just a dress, something that probably would be worn to a highschool or middle school dance, with no problems. Now, if she was trying to be provacative about it, say, I don't know, bending over randomly in front of people or something, then there is a reason for her to be kicked out. I highly doubt that is the case, however. It also says that she has worn more revealing things, with out a complaint ever issued against her. It may just be the wives of the men looking at her are, in fact, jealous. If this is the case, then she should be given an apology. There is nothing wrong with the dress in the picture, and it is ridiculous for the mall to kick someone for wearing their products, that THEY ARE PROMOTING. PERIOD!

    if you can not bend over without being obscene, then it should not have been bought.

    Nothing about the dress or if it's decent or not matters. The mall is private property and they can ask anyone to leave their property for any reason, or no reason at all. Just because the public is generally invited to enter the property, does not give anyone the right to stay there against the managments decisions.

    Hmm... Ok, This Photo looks Ok, But IS it REALLY the dress in question? Same Size? If a Lady wants to show off assets, there's the bimbo way, and the classy way. One guy here says she's not telling the whole truth. (Wouldn't surprise me, and wouldnt be the first time someone has.) Of course he may not be telling the truth either. Someone mentioned morals being forced upon us... What about Lack of morals being forced upon us? Two-Way Street. calling people "fat a**es" shows how much bigotry one has, no better than than those who's morals are being "shoved down your throat." IF you are going to preach acceptance/tollerance... you better practice it yourself!!! As I said before, cute kid. Are we getting the whole truth out of her? Need more witnesses to step forward to know for sure. I guarantee nobody will need an under-skirt cam if she sits with wide open legs. Money's not the goal here eh? then it must be the publicity... a lawyer with much to learn yet... job hunting.

    people who complain about what other people are wearing are usualy jealous that they cant wear it themselves. the woman or women who told on this lady are probably fat a**es that wish that their hubbys looked at them that way again. maybe if these ladies whould stip running their mouth and start running miles they would not feel so inscure about themselves and not try to make others miserable!!

    The dress makes a decency to cover her chest, bottom and tummy. One may choose what they wish to wear. We don't penalize teens wearing tiny shorts and a low cut cami do we? Is there now going to be a dress-code or the fingertip length rule applied to the public areas of Richmond? What idiot of a man would rape the girl in the middle of the mall? She has the smarts and tolerance to scream for help. You cannot influence all the teenagers nowadays to cover up their body entirely. This restricts their expression of opinion in the way they dress.
