Passengers applauded her exit.
An unruly, older woman who is clearly living in the wrong decade was rightfully kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight this weekend after calling a flight attendant the N-word. According to News Week, the woman who had to be wheeled off the plane said the racist remark after the flight attendant asked her to place her tray table in an upright position in preparation for takeoff - a normal procedure that everyone knows, whether you've flown before or watched a movie where someone's on a plane.
In the video, a passenger captured the woman saying "she’s a stupid [n-word]." Once the plane made it's way back to the gate, passengers applauded her exit where she was met by local law enforcement.
“On Flight #5593 with scheduled service from Chicago Midway to Houston Hobby on Saturday morning, our reports indicate that a customer refused to comply with our Flight Crew’s instructions after boarding and before the flight departed Chicago,” a statement read.
“The customer became unruly and verbally abusive toward our flight attendants, and the decision was made to return to the gate to deplane the customer, where she was met by local law enforcement officers. Our employees handled the situation professionally with grace and class, and we do not condone or tolerate such profane and unruly behavior on board our aircraft.”
