A theme park has hit back after a mum's video went viral which claimed she was asked to leave a theme park because her shorts were "too short".
Bailey Breedlove's video was seen millions of times on TikTok but officials have now spoken out saying they asked her to leave over her "unruly and offensive behaviour".
Bailey and her daughter, 11, visited the Frontier City park in Oklahoma City while on holiday.
While inside, an argument reportedly ensued between the mum and a female park officer regarding the outfit she was wearing on April 30.
Ms Breedlove claims the officer said her shorts were "too short" and asked her to leave the site.
She says the officer targeted her daughter for rolling down a hill on her Heelys skate shoes – a design with a removable wheel in the sole.
The mum claims after that the officer's attention turned to her shorts and when she walked away, the staff called for backup.
“I was told I needed to go buy new shorts,” she said.

However, Six Flags, which owns Frontier City, say their decision to remove her was down to her behaviour and not the length of her outfit.
A spokesperson told Star-Telegram that they were forced to remove the mum “after she refused to stop her unruly and offensive behaviour, targeted at the police and other park guests".
But they admitted they had stopped Ms Breedlove for the shorts while claiming the initial video doesn't "fully portray her behaviour during the incident".
The statement reads: ”The guest was initially stopped because her shorts exposed a significant portion of her buttocks.
“She was given multiple opportunities to change or cover up, but refused. Instead, she responded with profanity and offensive conduct, including further exposing her buttocks.
"The guest was removed from the park after she refused to stop her unruly and offensive behavior, targeted at the police and other park guests.
"The video clip this guest has posted on the internet does not fully portray her behavior during this incident.”

The park also uploaded a statement on their Twitter saying they do not "body shame" guests and is committed to creating "an inclusive environment."
Ms Breedlove claims she walked around the park for several hours without receiving complaints about her shorts.
Since uploading the clip on TikTok under @baileybreedlove970, it's been watched more than 5million times and attracted over 17,000 comments.
In the video, her husband behind the camera tells the officers that Ms Breedlove, who is autistic, "has a disability".
He also is heard saying: "They are saying her shorts are too small."
Ms Breedlove then tells the park officers: "Look at what you're doing to my daughter," and gestures to the girl who is sitting down and crying.
One user commented: "They should have told her at the gate if she's violating a dress code."
Another said: "I hope your daughter is doing okay! That seemed stressful for her."
Daily Star has approached Six Flags for comment.
