The passenger reportedly received a notification from United Airlines telling him that he's barred from the airline's flights until the case is reviewed by the Passenger Incident Review Committee.
Adam Jenne from Cape Coral, Florida was escorted off a United Airlines flight from Fort Lauderdale to Washington, DC on Wednesday due to his stance on the use of face masks.
According to Fox 4, Jenne said that he regarded the rule necessitating people to wear face masks on a plane as silly, and therefore "decided to follow the rule in a silly way"; he used women's underwear as a mask, arguing that it "covered his nose and mouth and complied with TSA guidelines."
"There’s nothing more absurd than having to wear a mask until I get to cruising altitude so that I can order Tito’s by the double and snack on pretzels, and illustrating that absurdity by wearing women’s underwear on my face sounds perfect," he said.
The crew of the United Airlines flight to DC had other ideas and asked Jenna to disembark, with one flight attendant telling him that he was "not in mask compliance."
After Jenna was thrown off the plane, several other passengers also got off the aircraft in support of him, he reportedly said.
"Thank you to them, because they saw something, an injustice, something that didn’t make sense, and they stood up," he added.
Later, Jenna also received an email from United Airlines, telling him that he was barred from their flights until the case is reviewed by the Passenger Incident Review Committee.
Jenna, however, insisted that he was in the right, saying: "Your rights end where mine begin. You don’t get to tell me how I conduct myself."
Meanwhile, United Airlines’ communications team told the media outlet in a statement: "The customer clearly wasn’t in compliance with the federal mask mandate and we appreciate that our team addressed the issue on the ground prior to takeoff, avoiding any potential disruptions in the air.”
