New York: A JetBlue airline passenger, who was believed to have been making derogatory remarks at Ivanka Trump, daughter of President-elect Donald Trump, was reportedly removed from the airplane.

According to the reports, Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner were on the flight when a passenger confronted them. “Your father is ruining the country,” the passenger apparently shouted at Ivanka Trump.

Reportedly, Lesnar’s husband exclaimed “they ruin the country now they ruin our flight!” He later added that “The flight was delayed because the Trump family needed to get on first through different a different area than the other passengers.”

“Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband (is) chasing them down to harass them. #banalityofevil,” tweeted Matthew Lasner whose husband had harassed Ivanka Trump.

Lesnar had also tweeted that his husband had “expressed displeasure in a calm tone” about Trump and Kushner presence on their flight when “JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off the plane.” Lesnar had also tweeted a photo of Ivanka on the flight.

JetBlue Airways Corp (JBLU.O) has also confirmed in a statement that “a passenger had been removed from a flight set to depart from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, bound for San Francisco.” It also added that “The decision to remove a customer from a flight is not taken lightly.”

“In this instance, our team worked to re-accommodate the party on the next available flight,” JetBlue said in an official statement.
“If the crew determines that a customer is causing conflict on the aircraft, the customer will be asked to deplane, especially if the crew feels the situation runs the risk of escalation during flight,” the company said in the statement.

“In this instance, our team worked to re-accommodate the party on the next available flight.”

No further information was provided about the incident.
