A passenger aboard the Jet Blue Flight Thursday morning at the JFK International Airport bound for Florida has been removed from the plane for being a public nuisance and being a cause of disturbance in an incident that involved Ivanka Trump. The cause behind the incident as stated by several different accounts from people aboard the flight report that the man was reportedly “berating” Ivanka Trump and her family just after the plane took off.
TMZ reports that the passenger spotted the President- Elect’s daughter Ivanka Trump and her family flying in coach on a flight bound for Florida. He further said “Your father is ruining the country,” the man told Trump, according to TMZ. “Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private.”
Right after this public outburst by the passenger, a JetBlue personnel removed him from the plane, the passenger resisted, and screamed saying: “You’re kicking me off for expressing my opinion?”
JetBlue in a statement confirmed that they have indeed removed a passenger from the Florida-bound flight and have made arrangements for him and his family to travel on the next available flight.
“The decision to remove a customer from a flight is not taken lightly,” a JetBlue spokesman said in a statement. “If the crew determines that a customer is causing conflict on the aircraft, the customer will be asked to deplane, especially if the crew feels the situation runs the risk of escalation during flight. In this instance, our team worked to re-accommodate the party on the next available flight.”
The first daughter (to be) of the United States, Ivanka Trump, seems to be getting the wrong type of attention from people that were not too happy with the outcome of the US presidential election and although she has been under the Secret Service protection since September due to threats, guess they can’t guard her against everything.
