Masks have become a very divisive issue in America, with people on both sides of the debate often becoming irrational over the matter.
Such was the case aboard a Southwest Airlines flight, when a flight attendant effectively booted a “Black Voices for Trump” hat-wearing man off of a plane for eating with his mask off.
The passenger -who was wearing a “Trump 2020” mask under his chin- was reportedly harassed by a flight attendant and forced off the aircraft.
“Tell us the policy that says he cannot eat with his mask off?” one woman could be heard asking the flight attendant on a video recorded during the incident.
The flight, which went from Tampa to Dallas, would ultimately take off without him.
A representative for Southwest told the New York Post that the man -clearly seen wearing a mask on video- was removed for not wearing a mask.
Our reports indicate that a Customer traveling on Flight 2632, with scheduled service from Tampa to Dallas, was asked repeatedly by more than one employee at different times to wear a face mask. The customer did not comply with our crew’s multiple verbal requests — including while boarding the flight before seated,” the company rep said.
Ultimately, the man was given another flight.
“The decision was made to return to the gate and re-accommodate him on a later flight to his final destination after receiving assurances he would comply with our face-covering policy. We regret the inconvenience the situation created for all involved, but our crew must uphold the well-being and comfort of all Passengers.”
