70yr old man removed from flight for racist comments


A 70-year-old man was kicked off a flight after allegedly making racist comments to a flight attendant on a Binter Canarias flight, which was bound to La Palma, on Spain’s Canary Islands.

The passenger was reportedly boarding a plane as witnesses said he “hurled racist abuse,” according to Spanish newspaper El Pais

“I don’t want blacks around me,” the man reportedly shouted to the black flight attendant.

In a video uploaded to social media by passengers, the plane’s captain ordered the passenger to leave the flight, as reported on SF Gate. The incident took place on March 14.
