Man Kicked Off Flight for Wearing Thongs as Face Mask

He claims to have followed the mask mandate, with both his mouth and nose covered.

A Florida man was asked to leave a United Airlines flight to Washington, D.C. for wearing thongs instead of a face mask.

The passenger, whose name is Adam Jenne, claimed that he was following the COVID-19 mask mandate as both his nose and mouth were covered. Flight attendants told Jenne he was “not in mask compliance,” adding that he would have to leave the airplane.

According to Jenne, he has worn a thong in replacement of a face mask on two dozen flights throughout the pandemic. “I think the best way to illustrate absurdity is with absurdity. Every single flight has been met with different reactions from the flight crew,” he said.

Jenne has since been banned from flying on United Airlines for refusing to follow guidelines put in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. “I am banned from flying United so, so much for the customer is always right. It is nonsense. It is all nonsense,” he said.
