A Florida man was reportedly banned from flying United Airlines after wearing a red thong as a face covering while boarding a flight in protest of the federal mask mandate.
Adam Jenne, of Cape Coral, told NBC 2 that his Wednesday morning antics at Fort Lauderdale Airport got him booted off a plane bound for Washington, DC.
“It’s all nonsense,” Jenne said of the mask requirement aboard planes.
“COVID doesn’t know that we’re at cruising altitude. It’s stupid. The whole thing is theater,” he fumed.
Jenne said Wednesday wasn’t the first time he fashioned red panties into a mask aboard a plane.
“Every single flight has been met with different reactions from the flight crew,” he told the news outlet.
“Some with a wild appreciation, others confrontational.”Woman makes makeshift face mask out of her thongPlay Video
In a statement to The Post, a United Airlines spokesperson credited the airline workers with confronting Jenne before the plane took off.
“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,” the statement said.
Despite getting kicked off the flight Wednesday, Jenne said he planned to give it another try on Thursday when he was set to fly on a different airline.
“Hopefully, Spirit Airlines has a better sense of humor,” he said.
