In a viral video uploaded to Twitter by the TikTok account Libs of TikTok, it begins with a man in a seat on the flight beginning to have a dispute with a flight attendant.
"It's the comment that you've written on there," said the airplane stewardess in the video, referencing the alleged message on his mask. "I'm going to ask you to put a different mask on, or I'm going to ask you to leave."
"So, is that a violation of my rights?" the man asked.
This guy was reportedly kicked off a flight because he had \u201clet\u2019s go Brandon\u201d written on his mask and refused to change masks. @Allegiant employee claims it\u2019s an \u201cFAA regulation\u201dpic.twitter.com/4ipRbqggEB
"The passenger was removed from the flight and issued a refund for his fare. Disregarding instructions from flight crew members is prohibited by federal regulations and is grounds for removal from a flight where such conduct creates an unsafe environment," said the statement to Fox Business.
It continued: "In April, the FAA adopted a zero-tolerance policy against unruly passenger behavior, which includes failure to comply with crew members' instructions."
Allegiant further claimed that it doesn't typically remove passengers and won't do so for minor reasons.
This isn't the first time that a passenger was kicked off an Allegiant flight for violations.
