Trump supporter’s in-flight rant against ‘Hillary b*tches’ earns him a lifetime ban from Delta Air Lines
Last week, video emerged of a Trump supporter standing up in the middle of a Delta Airlines flight and yelling at women whom he believed voted for Hillary Clinton in this year’s presidential election.
The video, which quickly went viral, showed the man standing up in the aisle and chastising “Hillary b*tches” for not supporting his preferred candidate. And now it seems this passenger is about to get his just deserts — in the form of a lifetime ban from the airline.
CNBC’s Steve Kopack has posted an internal memo sent out by Delta CEO Ed Bastian that praises the airline crew’s response to the incident and rips the passenger for his rude behavior.
“This individual displayed behavior that was loud, rude, and disrespectful to his fellow customers,” Bastian wrote to employees. “He will never again be allowed on a Delta plane.”
Bastian said that Trump’s rise has generated “heightened tension” in our society, while also stressing that “now more than ever we must require civility on our planes.” He also said he would offer customers on the flight a full refund to compensate them for the obnoxiousness they had to endure at the hands of a Trump fan.
Check out the full memo below, as well as the original video.
