Gay couple kicked off flight for screaming at Ivanka Trump
Ivanka Trump and her family were berated by a fellow passenger aboard a JetBlue flight Thursday morning.
TMZ first reported that a man started “jeering” at the future first daughter, her husband Jared Kushner and their three children, who were all seated in coach on a flight leaving John F. Kennedy International Airport.
The man started screaming, eyewitnesses told TMZ, “Your father is ruining our country.”
“Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private,” he said.
According to TMZ, Ms. Trump ignored the passenger and tried distracting her children with crayons.
Matthew Lasner, a gay professor at Hunter College in New York City, took credit for the incident, tweeting about being kicked off the flight.
“Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them,” he wrote, according to screenshots published by a local ABC News affiliate.
“Ivanka and Jared on our flight. My husband expressed displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off the plane. #banalityofevil,” he tweeted.
The bragging tweets were removed and his entire account was later deleted.
