A commenter claimed that Jordyn and her family “mocked” the religion of Islam by wearing an abaya. To which Jordyn replied, “I’m sorry if I offended you but in order to enter the mosque you have to wear an abaya… In no world would I try to mock another person nor culture.”
She also put up a separate post and captioned it, “For those of you that don’t know in order to enter the mosque you must wear an abaya. It was such an amazing experience getting to see the beauty of another culture.”

Jordyn Woods is now thinking of cutting her trip short amidst the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the entire planet. “It gives me an excuse to come back to Dubai to go skydiving like I wanted to do,” she said on Instagram Stories. “By the looks of it, coming home would be the best idea sooner rather than later. This is wild,” she said.
