A Florida man was kicked off of a United Airlines flight for wearing a pair of women's underwear as a face mask. The man, Adam Jenne, argues that the underwear covered his nose and mouth and complied with TSA guidelines.
He adds that he thinks the mask rule on planes is silly because everyone ends up taking them off to drink and eat their snacks. He says he thought wearing the underwear on his face would make fun of the rule while still complying.
The United Airlines staff didn't find it funny though and asked Jenne to get off the plane.
A few other passengers even voluntarily got off the plane in solidarity with Jenne.
"Thank you to them, because they saw something, an injustice, something that didn't make sense, and they stood up," Jenne said.
United sent him an email after the incident, saying he is now banned from the airline until his case has been reviewed by the Passenger Incident Review Committee.
