According to TMZ, the passenger shouted, “Your father is ruining the country.” And as he was being escorted off the flight, he screamed, “You’re kicking me off for expressing my opinion?!!”
Hunter College professor Matthew Lasner says his husband was the one Jet Blue kicked off the plane and tweeted pics of the incident:
Dude. You just admitted that he was harassing her, which is the opposite of expressing “displeasure in a calm tone.”
