McKinley says while the jeans may have “slightly” violated the dress code, she called the male administrator’s comments “girl shaming” and sexist.

Principal Mary Stratos told the Palm Beach Post she’ll investigate the administrator’s alleged comments. She defended the school’s dress code as gender-neutral.
