A former FBI agent turned anti-Muslim extremist has received pushback from Southwest Airlines but not lost his right to fly on the airline after he tweeted a creepshot of an airline employee and labeled him dangerous, the Arizona Republic reports.
John Guandolo is a disgraced former FBI agent who was forced to resign after having an affair with an informant. He’s received taxpayer dollars to provide “anti-jihadi” training to law enforcement officers in Arizona, leading to protests by the ACU and Muslim leaders.
He was headed to a conservative conference in Phoenix on Friday when he posted the photo.
“I wish this were shocking…a sharia adherent muslim (aka jihadi) at my plane,” he wrote, adding the hashtag “#shariakills.”
Southwest said the tweets violated their value and reported it to Twitter, but took no action against Guandolo as a customer.
Thank you to those who have shared their concerns regarding a recent inappropriate post by a Customer showing one of our Employees. Earlier today, we reported the tweet to Twitter and are hopeful that it will be removed.
