(WJAR) Hundreds of people took to the streets in Barrington, Rhode Island this weekend to protest an op-ed written in the local newspaper that many found offensive.

The letter, written by Alan Sorrentino, critiques older women who wear yoga pants in public, saying the clothing does not compliment a woman over 20 years-old.

“This is way more than yoga pants. It is women fed up with the policing of our wardrobes,” said parade organizer, Jamie Burke.

Sorrentino claims that his op-ed was just a joke but many are calling his comments sexist.
