Ivanka Trump was reportedly yelled at while travelling with her husband Jared Kushner and their children on a JetBlue flight on Thursday morning.
The family were taking their seats when a man apparently said to her, "Your father is ruining this country," and also added, "Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private."
According to TMZ Ivanka tried to ignore the man and distract her kids with crayons. http://www.tmz.com/2016/12/22/ivanka-trump-flight/
Flight staff then escorted the man off the flight, as he yelled "You're kicking me off for expressing my opinion?!!"
Before the flight, Matthew Lasner, the husband of the man who spoke to Ivanka, had posted tweets, which have since been deleted about how he was "chasing them down to harass them."
Later he reportedly also tweeted, "My husband expressed displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off the plane.”
JetBlue have since released a statement addressing the incident.
"The decision to remove a customer from a flight is not taken lightly. 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. Our team worked to re-accommodate the party on the next available flight."
