Australian social media personality Newsha Syeh was prohibited from entering the Louvre because her outfit was deemed inappropriate.


Syeh attempted to enter the world-famous museum earlier this week and took to Instagram to vent her anger after being barred from entering.

She posted about the incident on her Instagram story saying,

"Yesterday at the Louvre, I was stopped at the entrance by a guard for my outfit. He made the most disgusted and horrible gestures and facial expressions, swore at me to cover up, with hate filled eyes stopped me entering. I was heartbroken, because I thought the Louvre enforced this archaic rule [sic]. Turns out it does not."

On Saturday she posted a picture of the outfit in question with the caption,

"Picasso would have loved my outfit"

Several people have pointed out the fact that Picasso's work is not featured in the Louvre.

The Louvre's rules only state that guests cannot wear swimsuits, be barefoot, bare-chested, or naked. There is nothing in their regulations about women wearing plunging necklines.

However, some people think that Newsha's outfit was, indeed, inappropriate and that she was rightfully denied access to the museum.

However, many people feel as though the Louvre's behavior only perpetuates a misogynistic attitude.

Remember Theranos? It was a breakthrough technology company that claimed to have devised blood tests that required very tiny amounts of blood. The hype was real: In 2015, Theranos received a $9 billion valuation and its CEO, Elizabeth Holmes, seemed prime to become a household name. Shortly afterward, she was exposed as a fraud; her trial (on charges of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit wire fraud) has been postponed several times as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

After Redditor LineofDeath asked the online community, "What was supposed to be the next big thing but totally flopped?" people reminded us how you should never fall for the hype.
