A viral video from over the weekend showed a man who was kicked off a flight apparently for not wearing a coronavirus face mask. Airlines are increasingly cracking down on people who refuse to wear face masks, at a time when they\u2019re also having to deal with unruly Trump supporters in the wake of last week\u2019s DC riots. Airlines are becoming the newest battleground between Trump supporters, many of whom defy face mask regulations, and everyone else. Airline flights are increasingly becoming the next battleground in the standoff between Trump supporters and members of the public as well as authority figures. Over the weekend, a video went viral and so far has racked up more than 18 million views for depicting a crying man who\u2019d been kicked off a flight. \u201cThis is what they do to us,\u201d the man is shown lamenting in the video, which you can check out below. \u201cThey kicked me off a flight, they call me a (expletive) terrorist and they want to rule my life.\u201d Originally, the assumption that been that this man might have been connected to the DC riots, but New York magazine and Huffington Post writer Yashar Ali said via Twitter that the man was instead booted from a plane for not wearing a face mask.

This man, according to the woman who filmed it, was kicked off the flight for not wearing a mask. https:\/\/t.co\/dBoz18uXUd \u2014 Yashar Ali \ud83d\udc18 (@yashar) January 10, 2021 Even though this issue seems to have stemmed from airlines\u2019 very appropriate rigidity around the requirement that everyone on board must wear a coronavirus face mask, Trump supporters are also increasingly being put on notice that loud, disruptive episodes will be dealt with swiftly. And if you noticed that there is a Venn Diagram intersect that encompasses both of these groups of people, you get an extra bonus point. As we\u2019ve previously noted, there has already been a call from congressmen to put Trump supporters who attended the DC riots last week on a no-fly list. If that sounds extreme, it\u2019s simply an effort to keep the situation inside the plane cabin from turning into something like this: And so it begins.

Staab (@MaranieRae) January 6, 2021 Last week, passengers on another flight started chanting and making enough of a disruption as they left the Capitol Hill riot to return to Phoenix that their American Airlines pilot reportedly threatened to \u201cdump people off.\u201d Said the pilot, according to Newsweek: \u201cThis is going to be a four-and-a-half hour flight out to Phoenix. We\u2019ll put this plane down in the middle of Kansas and dump people off. I don\u2019t care. We will do that, if that\u2019s what it takes, so behave, please.\u201d Meanwhile, the airlines themselves maintain their own individual no-fly lists, warning passengers that refusing to wear face masks will earn them a spot on that list. To cite one example, Delta Airlines through the end of 2020 had already put almost 700 people on its own no-fly list for this reason.\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t \t\t \t \t\tAndy is a reporter in Memphis who also contributes to outlets like Fast Company and The Guardian.
