A man was kicked off a flight in the US for wearing women’s underwear as a face mask.
In footage taken by another passenger and shared widely online, Adam Jenne can be seen wearing a pink thong over his face as he sits in his seat before the flight from Fort Lauderdale to Washington took off.
A flight attendant can be heard saying: “You’re going to have to come off the plane. We’re not going to let you travel.”
Mr Jenne, from Florida, can then be heard asking “Why”, as the staff member replies: “You’re not in mask compliance.”
The 38-year-old’s removal from the plane then can be seen to spark a show of support from other passengers, with several reportedly getting up to leave.
One can be heard saying: “Did he just get kicked off for wearing a mask. I’m out of here, forget it. I’m out of here.”
Mr Jenne later said he had pulled the stunt to highlight the “absurdity” of mask-wearing rules on flights
He said: “There’s nothing more absurd than having to wear a mask until I get to cruising altitude so that I can order Tito’s by the double and snack on pretzels, and illustrating that absurdity by wearing women’s underwear on my face sounds perfect.”
