Florida Woman has struck again, this time placing herself in the middle of the new mandatory face mask policy in place on nearly all commercial air flights. But in this case, it wasn’t a question of making the passenger wear a mask. She had one. The problem was that the face mask had a message on it that a flight attendant found offensive. This led to the plane returning to the gate and the passenger being escorted off. So what was the offensive message? The mask was reportedly emblazoned with the phrase “F— 12.” (Fox News)
A woman was reportedly kicked off an American Airlines flight last week because her mask was deemed “offensive” by a flight attendant.
Arlinda Johns, from South Florida, was on her way to Illinois when she boarded a plane wearing a mask that said “F— 12” and a T-shirt that said “Black Lives Matter,” she told Florida’s Local 10 station.
According to the station, “f— 12” is slang for “f— the police.”
The woman, Arlinda Johns, is described as an “activist” who believes in defunding or abolishing the police. The flight attendant asked her to cover her mask with something else, which she apparently did. At that point, their stories diverge. Johns claims she followed instructions, but the attendant says she kept switching back to the offensive mask. After a confrontation over the dispute, the plane returned to the gate.
