Passengers Cheer As ‘Racist’ Man Tossed From Flight

A man who harassed a Pakistani couple was escorted off a United flight on Saturday, drawing cheers from passengers. The incident began after the Pakistani couple in traditional dress boarded the plane. “That’s not a bomb in your bag, is it?” a man asked them twice, then adding that “all illegals and all foreigners need to leave the country.” Passengers complained, and cellphone video captured a flight attendant approaching the man and asking him to gather his belongings. “I didn’t do nothing,” he protests. The woman filming can be heard saying, “Goodbye racist!” and passengers cheered as the couple were led away. A United rep says removing passengers is rare but “most customers appreciate a place where they feel safe and where they’re not going to be attacked and we want to provide that.”
