Donald Trump Jr. posted a video on Twitter Tuesday night showing a black Trump supporter being removed from a Southwest Airlines flight after lowering his mask while he ate peanuts.

“WTF???” President Trump’s eldest son tweeted, along with a video of showing a man being removed from a commercial airline flight. “This is disgusting. I’ve been on a thousand flights in the last few months and everyone lowers their masks to eat and drink. I did it on a southwest flight earlier this week.”

The video, posted by SV News, appears to show a black man wearing a Trump face mask being asked to leave a flight because he lowered his mask to eat peanuts.

“BREAKING: @SouthwestAir flight attendant ejects passenger wearing ‘Black Voices for Trump’ cap for lowering his Trump face mask to eat nuts,” the original post states.

“It’s not a publicity stunt,” the woman holding the camera can be heard saying as she argues back and forth with Southwest Airlines personnel as to whether the man violated a specific policy.

“Our reports indicate that a Customer traveling on Flight 2632, with scheduled service from Tampa to Dallas, was asked repeatedly by more than one Employee at different times to wear a face mask. The Customer did not comply with our Crew’s multiple verbal requests — including while boarding the flight before seated. Therefore, the decision was made to return to the gate and re-accommodate him on a later flight to his final destination after receiving assurances he would comply with our face covering policy. We regret the inconvenience the situation created for all involved, but our Crew must uphold the well-being and comfort of all Passengers,” Southwest Airlines told the Washington Examiner.

“Customers are required to wear a face covering over their nose and mouth at all times during their Southwest travel experience,” the Southwest Airlines website states. “It is highly encouraged to bring your own hand sanitizer and face covering. In accordance with the current CDC guidance, a well-secured cloth or mask that fits snugly against the face, covers an individual’s nose and mouth, and is secured under the chin will be accepted.”

Southwest Airlines drew criticism last year in response to a flight attendant’s scathing social media post criticizing a Trump-supporting passenger.

“We aim to provide outstanding service to all who travel with us,” a Southwest Airlines spokesperson said in an apology statement. “The post in question does not reflect the inclusive environment we strive to provide for our customers and employees.”
