After Emily Jackson wasn’t allowed to board due to her pregnancy, the cruise line sent an armed police officer
A pregnant woman has taken to the Internet to blast her treatment at the hands of Disney Cruise Lines.
Family vlogger Emily Jackson and her family, including two toddlers, traveled from St. Louis to Miami for a planned six-day Disney Magic cruise to the Caribbean, only to be denied boarding because she was 25 weeks pregnant. It seems the cruise line has strict rules about women over 24 weeks traveling on the ship, regardless of whether they had a note from their doctor, which she had.
Jackson was certainly upset about the family missing out on the trip, but that isn’t what really upset her. She says in a vlog post that after her father asked staff to “hurry up” with their luggage, which was already on the ship, an armed officer arrived to escort the entire party of ten out of the building. Disney Cruises did not comment at press time.
- "They had the guy with the gun following us. They had the K-9 unit," Jackson told Miami’s WPLG. "So we then had to take both babies outside, wait almost two hours for our luggage, outside in the heat, and both babies are red-faced."
- Jackson insists she didn’t know about the cruise line’s pregnancy cut off, and actually understands their concerns. She’s more upset about how she was treated by the cruise line. Disney has now offered to refund the family’s cruise fare, but Jackson says their other expenses were not covered. Check out her vlog to the right.

First there were clear purses, then see-through boots, and now jewelry is the next frontier for transparent accessories.
It started with the clear plastic purses at Céline and Helmut Langfashion shows. Then see-through boots came down the runway at Chanel. And now this season’s “Total transparency” theme has moved to accessories and the next clear wardrobe must-haves are jewelry.
This spring, everything from hoop earrings, thick bangles, and bulky rings are all going clear. The translucent, Lucite look is fun and goes with anything, but doesn’t get as casual as costume jewelry. Some of the coolest styles also come in soft colors, like pale pink and yellow, to give it an extra pop.
And the best part about this trend is that unlike those see-through purses that show everyone in the world what you’re carrying, hello blotter sheets and hair ties, these accessories give you the trendy look without oversharing. Plus, you can find pieces to fit any budget, like this square ring from Express for less than $12.
Iowaian tattoo artist is offering free removal of gang related, racist, or hateful tattoos.
Tattoo artists normally put the ink on their clients, but an artist in Iowa is now helping people get rid of tattoos they regret. Robert Badger isn’t helping folks erase an ex’s name, he’s offering those with racist images or designs with hate speech or gang activity free removal of the hateful tattoos.
Badger owns The Crow’s Nest Tattoo Studio and he recognizes that the ink is permanent, but a person’s point of view can change. But a lot of people can’t afford to get their tattoos removed, so he wants to help them get rid of the ink they regret by providing the expensive service for free.
Badger says it’s another step in removing hate from the world, adding, “It’s basically good versus evil.”
