The 19-year-old has since shared a photo of the ‘offending’ outfit and her Facebook post has gone viral.
“I was literally harassed and kicked out of the Bellair mall in Mobile, AL today because of what I’m wearing,” she wrote in her post.
“Apparently grown men couldn’t contain themselves so I got kicked out.”
The offending detail in the outfit was her denim shorts, which the centre's security officers claimed were too short.
"Security officer J. Mathis initiated that he was looking at my ass cheeks and it was a problem," she wrote.
"I told them I have bigger thighs and it's just too hot for jeans that I can't help [that] they ride up a bit.
"[If] it doesn't bother me then it shouldn't bother you."
Gibson also noted that given Alabama's 37 degree plus summer weather, other patrons were wearing similar outfits, but she was specifically targeted.
