Man kicked off United Airlines flight at FLL
Fort Lauderdale – Hollywood International Airport, Florida – After causing a dispute over, what he called, his face mask, a man was forced off a flight at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
It was a pair of red underwear. He said he wanted to send a message, and he did.
“You’re going to have to come off the airplane. We’re not going to let you travel,” the flight attendant said.
“Why?” said passenger Adam Jenne.
“You’re not in mask compliance,” the flight attendant responded.
As he was walking off a plane on Wednesday, red underwear was hanging from Jenne’s face.
According to the Cape Coral man, he was challenging the mask mandate.
“Illustrating that absurdity by wearing women’s underwear on my face sounds perfect,” he said.
Jenne was kicked off the flight from Fort Lauderdale to Washington D.C. Wearing masks on public transportation like planes is federally mandated.
After Jenne left, other passengers started to speak up. “Did he just get kicked off for wearing a mask?” one passenger said. “I’m out of here, forget it. I’m out of here.”
According to Jenne, several passengers ended up getting off the plane to support him.
“Thank you to them, because they saw something, an injustice, something that didn’t make sense, and they stood up,” Jenne said.
According to the email from United Airlines, Jenne is now banned from flights until his case has been reviewed by the passenger incident review committee.
“Your rights end where mine begin. You don’t get to tell me how I conduct myself,” Jenne said.
