Shaliah Rismay was a Sixers fan who tried to attend last week’s Bulls-Sixers game in Philly but security tried to harras her right before she got through security for what she was wearing, according to NBC 10. All she was wearing was stockings, a leotard, and a leather jacket.
Rismay was accompanied by notable Philly photographer and marketer Big Rube. He quickly came to Rismay’s defense by saying it was discrimination. He also added that her attire is no different from what the Sixers’ cheerleaders wear.
“The same thing, a leotard and some pantyhose,” said Big Rube. “What’s the problem? If a celebrity can do it, if the Sixers dancers can do it, why not just the regular fan?”
Rube was right on the money with this one and Sixers security was wrong. Rismay wasn’t naked or a distraction. The Sixers said they don’t have a dress code but Rube is still getting lawyers involved. Hopefully Rismay gets compensated for the way she was treated prior to the game.
