WATCH: Muslim Woman Suspended from her Job Says She's No Kim Davis

Charee Stanley, suspended for refusing to serve alcohol to passengers, says her situation shouldn't be compared to Kim Davis.

A Muslim flight attendant suspended from her job for refusing to serve alcohol says her religious freedom has been violated — but that she should not be compared to Kim Davis.

Charee Stanley, a recent convert to Islam, told the hosts of The View this week that Atlanta-based ExpressJet suspended her for numerous reasons relating to her religion, including abstaining from serving cocktails to passengers. While ExpressJet won't comment on personnel matters, Stanley argues Islamaphobia is behind her suspension.

Stanley said she always made sure other flight attendants could attend to fliers who wanted drinks; in other words, her religious accomodation didn't inconvenience paying customers.

Stanley's attorney, Lena Masri, was asked whether her client's situation was similar to that ofKim Davis, the recently jailed Kentucky clerk who disobeyed numerous court orders when asked to provide marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Masri says the two situations couldn't be more different.

Watch her explanation in a clip from the show below:
