After passengers on a Southwest Airlines flight were kicked off for refusing to wear masks, the rest of the plane cheered – and a flight attendant broke out in dance.
A viral TikTok video begins mid-argument over mask-wearing. Even before masks were federally mandated on planes, they were required by all U.S. airlines, and Southwest Airlines didn’t even exempt two year olds (in fact, they’ve booted two year olds for violating mask rules more than once).
Everyone is made aware of the mask rules prior to flight, and agrees to them by boarding the aircraft. Oddly, the woman engaging in a heated argument about the rule is wearing her mask when the video begins. She had previously been instructed to put it on. She did so, but wouldn’t stop fighting what she believed was the good fight.
The passenger let it be known that anyone who claimed she broke masks rules was a liar, and gave the middle finger to the rest of the aircraft which had been getting riled up by the confrontation.
Numerous passengers cheered as the woman and her travel companion were booted off the plane. And at the end of the video, once the departing passengers had cleared the aircraft, a flight attendant comes forward and does a dance of joy.
