The incident was talked about on social networks. In a long tweet, a user explains her mishap when she wanted to go to the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. The young woman says that when checking her reservation, a security guard refused her access to the museum… because of the cleavage she was wearing. The facts are reported by our colleagues from Liberation.
“Arrived at the entrance of the museum, I do not have time to take out my ticket as the sight of my breasts and my ragged pageantry shocks an agent (…) She leaves chanting” Oh no, that’s not right be possible. That is not possible, it will not pass ”while her colleague asks her not to get attached to such a detail and tries to hold her back (…) I ask what is happening, no one no answer, they stare at my breasts, I feel awfully embarrassed. At no time do they tell me that my cleavage is a problem, they stare at my breasts conspicuously, they designate an “that” (…), they simply insist that the rules are the rules and then tell me to cover myself with my jacket that I hold in my hands ”.
The young woman was therefore finally able to return by covering herself, but she did not lose heart for all that. On Twitter, the Musée d’Orsay reacted. “We learned of an incident that occurred with a visitor when she entered the Musée d’Orsay. We deeply regret this and offer our apologies to the person concerned that we contact, ”says the museum. The rule of the latter stipulates that access to the museum is forbidden to visitors “wearing clothing likely to disturb public peace”.
