A gay right-wing activist on his way to attend the Trump rally in Tulsa, this weekend was kicked off his flight for refusing to wear a mask.
Earlier today, New York Times reporter Astead Wesley tweeted about an irate man on his flight from Dallas to Tulsa who was making a scene about wearing a mask.
“There is currently a mutiny on my flight to tulsa (via dallas) because a guy is refusing to wear a mask and the flight can’t take off.”
The guy was gay Trump supporter Brandon Straka and on his on Twitter around the same time, Straka tweeted:
“I was just removed from my flight for not wearing a mask.
1st time this has happened. Not a federal law. @AmericanAir staff standing over me telling me it’s THE LAW. So much for ‘please respect those who can not wear a mask’. When I pointed out this wasn’t a law I was removed.”
Staka, who says he flies “every week,” followed up with a string of angry posts defending his actions and saying the airline later told him it was a “mistake” to kick him off the flight for wearing a mask.
Then he posted his own video about the “intimidating” incident, which he calls “absolutely nuts.”
But this isn’t his first time being a troll… check this other airport post out. He became a conservative-media darling after posting a video about “walking away” from the left encouraging disgruntled Democrats to abandon their ideals and join the party of Trump.

You don’t have a condition, other than Republicanism and narcissism. Wearing a mask is what’s respectful. It protects others. It is shown to be working. This was a fake stunt and I hope it backfires for you and that @AmericanAir and others double down. You’re a disgrace.— Boy Culture Blog (@mattrett) June 17, 2020
