Watch: Here's Why Many Are Calling Out This Airline for Removing a Woman From a Flight After Sounding Off on a Trump Supporter

If she called the man a 'Donald b***h' would she have been allowed to stay on?

Published January 23, 2017

In a recent video posted to Facebook by a man called Scott Koteskey, a woman was removed from an Alaska Airlines flight for insulting a Trump supporter. 

Koteskey, who recorded the video, said in the post that during their flight from Baltimore to Seattle, a woman in the seat next to him began criticizing him for supporting Trump.

“You pretend you have the moral high ground but you put that man’s finger on the nuclear button,” the woman said in the video.

“That man doesn’t believe in climate change,” she continued. “Do you believe in gravity? Did you know gravity is just a theory?”

  1. The video begins with airline staffers asking the woman to move
  2. A second video showed the woman and her husband getting removed by police
  3. Koteskey later tweeted a thank you to Alaska Air, who gave him a shout-out back
  4. Many people applauded Alaska Air for their swift action
  5. Yet many could not help but question why this woman was removed when a Trump supporter called passengers "Hillary B*****s" and was allowed to remain on a Delta flight

    An Alaska Airlines spokesperson told BuzzFeed News that the couple’s tickets were refunded, yet they were not booked on another flight with the airline.
