A married gay man and his husband and child were removed from a flight after he accosted Ivanka Trump, President-elect Trump’s eldest daughter, and her three children.
Brooklyn lawyer Dan Goldstein apparently started berating Trump before the plane took off.
Goldstein’s husband, Matthew Lasner, posted a photo of Trump seated on the plane to Twitter with the caption, “Ivanka just before @JetBlue kicked us off our flight when a flt attendant overheard my husband expressing displeasure about flying w/ Trumps.”
After he tweeted: “Ivanka and Jared on our flight. My husband expressed displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off the plane.”
However an early tweet by Lasner, paints a completely different picture:“Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them. #banalityofevil,”.
All three tweets were then deleted after the story hit the news. Shortly after, his Twitter account was also deleted.
As reported by TMZ,
Ivanka Trump just had a bumpy start to her Xmas holiday … an out-of-control passenger on her flight began verbally berating her and “jeering” at her 3 kids.
Ivanka was on a JetBlue flight leaving JFK Thursday morning with her family when a passenger started screaming, “Your father is ruining the country.” The guy went on, “Why is she on our flight. She should be flying private.” The guy had his kid in his arms as he went on the tirade.
A passenger on the flight tells TMZ Ivanka ignored the guy and tried distracting her kids with crayons.
JetBlue personnel escorted the unruly passenger off the flight. As he was removed he screamed, “You’re kicking me off for expressing my opinion?!!”
JetBlue airlines said in a statement that:
“The decision to remove a customer from a flight is not taken lightly. If the crew determines that a customer is causing conflict on the aircraft, the customer will be asked to deplane, especially if the crew feels the situation runs the risk of escalation during flight. Our team worked to re-accommodate the part on the next available flight.”
