A Cape Coral man was booted off an airplane after he boarded the flight at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and caused a dispute over, what he called, his face mask.
However, it wasn’t a mask, it was a pair of bright red underwear. He said he wanted to send a message, and he did.
Adam Jenne was kicked off the flight from Fort Lauderdale to Washington D.C. because he was not in mask compliance.
Wearing masks on public transportation like planes is federally mandated.
Jenne said several passengers ended up getting off the plane to support him.
“Thank you to them, because they saw something, an injustice, something that didn’t make sense, and they stood up,” Jenne said.
Jenne received this email from United Airlines saying he is now banned from flights until his case has been reviewed by the passenger incident review committee.
“Your rights end where mine begin. You don’t get to tell me how I conduct myself,” Jenne said.
United Airlines released a statement saying Jenne clearly wasn’t in compliance with the federal mask mandate and they’re glad the issue was addressed on the tarmac instead of in the air.
