(Headline USA) U.S. Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill, who is credited with killing Osama bin Laden, was banned from Delta Air Lines on Thursday for allegedly refusing to wear a mask during a recent flight.
O’Neill had posted a picture of himself on a Delta flight without a mask on, with the caption, “I’m not a p***y.”
The picture was a joke, according to O’Neill, but Delta accused him of failing to comply with its standards.
“Part of every customer’s commitment prior to traveling on Delta is the requirement to acknowledge our updated travel policies, which includes wearing a mask,” a Delta spokesman said in a statement.
“Failure to comply with our mask-wearing mandate can result in losing the ability to fly Delta in the future,” it said.
Several users interpreted O’Neill’s picture as a dig at the Marine pictured behind him, who was wearing a mask.
O’Neill clarified that his photo was not directed toward the Marine, but he agreed to delete the picture.
But that didn’t stop leftists from swarming O’Neill’s account and demanding that Delta ban him. Delta caved, because O’Neill was informed that he was not allowed to fly with the airline shortly after taking down the picture.
