Writer criticizes women’s choice of clothes at ’Bama-USC game

By Cox Media Group National Content Desk

A Texas-based freelance writer admonished young women attending the Alabama-USC college football game earlier this month, writing that they should “cover it up.”

In a story published in the Huffington Post, Rebecca Walden wrote that she was surprised to see some of the clothes worn by women at the game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on Sept. 3. Top-ranked Alabama won 52-6 in the season opener for both teams.

According to AL.com, Walden, a Birmingham native, wrote that she recalled shopping for her own gameday outfits as a student at the University of Alabama 20 years ago.

"What we didn't want, and what we never did, was to show up for a college football game looking like we belonged in a Victoria's Secret fashion show," Walden wrote.

The Huffington Post later removed the column from its site. Part of the column was captured in a screenshot that was posted online.
