Passenger Tells Flight Attendant Wearing BLM Pin That 'All Lives Matter', Gets Kicked Off Flight
A Spirit Airlines passenger at Tampa International Airport was booted from his flight Sunday because he objected to a button worn by a black flight attendant that said, “Black Lives Matter, White Supremacy Kills.”
“I said to her, ‘All lives matter,” passenger Robert Coyle told Tampa’s WTVT-13. “And she said, ‘I disagree with you. I disagree with you on so many levels.’ And then she went into some sort of memorized, ‘I really can’t speak politically while I am in uniform.'”
That’s when Coyle took a photo of the button. The attendant said the picture violated airline rules and asked to see it.
Coyle said he agreed to delete the image, but the woman interrupted her safety demonstration to demand that the pilot escort Coyle off the plane.
Coyle recovered the image and shared it with WTVT-13.
“No company should allow that to happen,” he said, “unless they are willing to accept the consequences for that happening.”
