Why did I just watch a clip showing a passenger being removed from a SW flight for wearing a Trump hat? the Flight crewmember that caused this needs to be fired!

Since this is a customer to customer forum any comments you would like to make to Southwest should be done through other channels.

I love SW, it is/was my favorite airline. I am appalled at SW employees who kicked a man off their flight because they did not like his hat that showed he was a black man who supported Trump. Whatever they say the reason was, I saw the video. He did nothing wrong other than being a black man who apparently supports trump. It should not matter who customers support politically. It is especially abhorrent that a man was kicked off a flight for "being black while supporting Trump".

SW needs to make a public apology to the man and let all its employees know that they cannot use their positions as SW employees to punish those customers that have different beliefs. Please just get back to treating everyone with respect regardless of political belief. Leave the politics to the politicians. I don't want to have to find a new favorite airline.

Sounds like the guy was refusing to wear his mask, period. If you don’t follow the rules, Southwest has every right to take action and remove you from the plane.

You must not have watched the video or don't like Trump!

Did you watch the video?  That is not the case.

It SOUNDS  to me that you didn't take a look at the video.  He only pulled his mask down, while he was eating.  The flight attendant should be fired for discrimination.  He didn't like his Trump hat & mask.  He was with a CONSTITUTIONAL LAWYER  on that flight and others around him agreed with him.

Slowdown cowboy.

 

It SOUNDS to me that you have no idea what happened in the minutes before the video started. In it's release SW told you what happened.

 

That he was with a constitutional lawyer is immaterial.. He could have been with the Pope for all I care.

 

It's so simple that anyone can understand it: If you don't wear your mask, you can't fly.

You should watch the entire, unedited video before you make a statement like that. The man removed the mask to eat his peanuts and was asked to put it back it on before he was removed from the plane. If you look in the background, there are PLENTY of other people on the plane without their masks also eating peanuts
