Man kicked off of a United Flight for wearing woman’s thong as a face mask in protest

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL – A man from Florida was on a United Airlines flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Washington DC claims he thought he was in compliance with the flights mask mandate when he wore a pair of women’s underwear instead of a regular mask.

As a reasonable person might conclude, the lingerie was not an acceptable form of alleged COVID-19 prevention and he was removed from the flight.

The airline passenger, Adam Jenne, claimed that he believed the see-through thong underwear he was wearing was sufficient to meet the requirements of the mask mandate because it covered his nose and his mouth. He must not have read United’s rules before boarding the flight and making the attempt.

Their rules state:

“Federal law requires all travelers age 2 and older to wear a face mask with no vents or openings that fully covers their nose and mouth.”

Jenne spoke to NBC2 and told them that he has done this on flights in the past and has not been removed until now. Jenne said:

“Every single flight has been met with different reactions from the flight crew. Some with a wile appreciation, others confrontational.”

United Airlines issued a statement regarding the removal of Jenne from their flight. The airline’s statement said:

“[T]he customer clearly wasn’t in compliance with the federal mask mandate and we appreciate and we appreciate that our team addressed the issue on the ground prior to takeoff, avoiding any potential disruptions on the air.”

On a video from Fox4, Jenne said that he believed that wearing a mask was “silly” and that he chose to illustrate that point by wearing a pair of red thong women’s underwear as a mask. He said:

“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.”

In a recorded cellphone video, the interaction between Jenne and the flight staff of United Airlines 1750 was recorded.

The unnamed flight attendant approached Jenne and informed him that his choice of face coverings did not comply with TSA mandates. The flight attendant said:

“You’re going to have to come off the airplane. We’re not going to let you travel.”

When Jenne asks the flight attendant why he is being removed off of the plane, the attendant responds:

“You’re not in mask compliance.”

 Jenne’s actions somehow allegedly inspired others to get off of the flight with him. In a video, a man can be heard asking:

“Did he just get kicked off for wearing a mask?”

When he got his answer, the man felt the need to remove himself off of the flight as well, even though he was not wearing women’s underwear as a facial covering. Jenne said that others followed and left the flight as well in what he termed as a show of support for him. Jenne said:

“Thank you to them, because they saw something, an injustice, something that didn’t make sense, and they stood up.”

While Jenne believes that his move is righteous, it is clear that United feels the incident is no laughing matter.

As a result of Jenne’s attempts at flaunting the TSA rules, he has been banned from all United Flights until a review can be completed by the Passenger Incident Review Committee.

Regardless of the ban, Jenne is sticking by his decision and noted that things have only changed in this country when ordinary people stand up for what they believe in. He noted:

“Everything else that has sparked change in this country has started from everyday people. Rosa Parks wasn’t famous. She changed the course of history.”

Caught on camera: Biden forgets mask, coughs into his hand, then shakes hands with Dem officials

KEARNY, NJ – On Monday, just days after possible exposure to COVID-19, President Biden forgot to replace his mask following a speech in new Jersey, briefly coughed into his hand as he stepped away from the podium and proceeded to use it to shake hands with members of the Democratic party.

 

President Biden, who champions Democratic demands for Americans to wear masks to combat the spread of COVID-19, had removed his mask to give a speech at the NJ Transit Meadowlands Maintenance Complex designed to build support for his controversial $1 billion infrastructure bill.

When the speech concluded, the President turned to walk away without his mask. He then coughed into his right hand as he walked toward multiple New Jersey Democratic officials nearby.

Once he reached the officials, he began shaking their hands with his right hand and leaning in close to speak with them.

 

The oversight is even more shocking when considering the President may have been exposed to the virus as recently as October 1, when he attended the 40th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service with  Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Mayorkas, who is fully vaccinated, announced last week that he had tested positive for the virus.

 

The President, who has been championing mask-wearing and other issues to combat the coronavirus pandemic, has forgotten to take his own precautions before.

On September 27, President Biden received his COVID-19 booster shot in front of new cameras. Before the shot was administered, the President removed his mask to give a short speech. When he finished speaking, he went over to the medical professional administering the shot without replacing his mask.

He began to sit down next to the medical professional, but then suddenly stood up and returned to the podium to retrieve his mask, which he then wore while receiving the booster.

 

In another moment of forgetfulness, the President was videotaped inside and exiting a restaurant in Washington, D.C., in October 2021 without a mask, flouting mask mandates despite advocating for others to comply with them. D.C. requires restaurant customers to wear masks if they aren’t actively eating or drinking.

The restaurant website stated at the time:

“Per CDC guidance and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser’s executive order, all individuals over age 2 are required to wear a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Masks must be always worn while in our restaurants, except while eating and drinking. Thank you for understanding.”

The New York Post reported on the incident:

“Biden was photographed walking through DC’s Fiola Mare restaurant Saturday night without a mask. He later left the business with an also un-masked first lady Jill Biden.”

 

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki called the violation a “moment in time”:

“(People should not) not overly focus on moments in time that don’t reflect overarching policy. I would say, of course, there are moments when we all don’t put masks back on as quickly as we should.

“I don’t think we should lose the forest for the trees here — in that our objective here is to get more people vaccinated, make sure that schools and companies around the country can put in place requirements to save more lives and keep more people safer.”

Many people on social media found the President’s actions to be hypocritical, especially since he expressed support for police and first responders to be fired for not obeying COVID-19 mandates.

 

Barton Fairfax posted on Twitter:

“Biden is a walking disaster. Our focus has to be on why half of Congress blindly follows him: It certainly isn’t to protect America’s national security, economy, or quality of life.”

 

Janette Cleveland tweeted:

“OK that’s disgusting even without the China virus. But if that were us we would all be put in quarantine for possible exposure. Do you think one person in that crowd will be quarantined? Wake up.”
