Woman Removed From Flight During Homophobic Rant

Another day, another case of homophobia caught on video with cosmic consequences.

As reported by the Daily Dot, video taken by passengers on a Dallas-bound flight "shows a woman wearing a mask under her chin and shouting homophobic statements" as she and her friends are removed from the plane.

As the woman exited the plane, the woman launched into a rant in which she claimed same-gender relationships are oversexualizing everything, shouted "fucking f*ggots," and spewed, "You corrupted Disney."

Everything about the exchange seemed to unsettle the passengers save for one man who spoke up and shouted: "No one wants to hear your bigotry."

Then others began to demand that she "get off the plane."

American Airlines confirmed the incident to the Daily Dot in a statement: "Before departure on June 12, American Airlines flight 462 with service from Orlando (MCO) to Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) returned to the gate at MCO after a group of passengers refused to comply with the federal mask mandate and became verbally abusive to team members and other customers. Law enforcement met the flight at the gate and the disruptive customers exited the aircraft."

"We expect our customers to comply with our policies when they choose to travel with us, and we take action when that is not the case," the airline continued. "Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated, and we thank our team members for their professionalism."
