There’s a viral video making the rounds that shows parents trying to get their two-year-old to wear a mask before a flight. The girl wasn’t having any of it, and at that point the video shows a person from the airline letting them all know they need to get off the plane and go back to the terminal:
Today we got kicked off of a United flight going from Denver to Newark because our 2yo would not “comply” and keep her mask on. Go see the full IGTV on my Instagram @elizfulop 😷 pic.twitter.com/KXCICsBSMj

Count Sen. Ted Cruz among those who didn’t like what he saw:
In what universe does this make any sense??
A two-year-old child?
WATCH this video. This isn’t keeping anyone safe. It’s just arbitrary & nonsensical. And infuriating. https://t.co/kXGGbP81Ak

We haven’t yet seen a response from United Airlines.
So sad that this is what we are becoming 🥺 https://t.co/arHAmtzjXl
