Outrage: Person of Political Privilege Kicked Off Flight

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

You would think that a transsexual journalist of color wearing a Black Panther hat and a t-shirt featuring an upside-down American flag would be invited to sit up front with the pilot. But instead, “Amanda” Stevens claims he was kicked off the flight:

Stevens was preparing to board [his] flight from Albany to Chicago on Wednesday when [he] said a United representative first raised concerns about [his] outfit.

Stevens said [he] was told that [his] shirt, from New York rapper A$AP Rocky’s discontinued PacSun line, made the flight’s pilot ‘uncomfortable’.

Or maybe it wasn’t about his obnoxious shirt after all.

Stevens, who was on [his] way to cover the world championship tournament for online battle game League of Legends, was allowed to board the plane while still wearing the shirt.

But [he] said problems continued when [he] had a ‘tense exchange’ with a flight attendant who asked Stevens to place [his] bag under the seat in front of [him].

Stevens further alleged that the pilot is a “racist” who gave him a “smug look.”

United says the actual reason he was kicked off was because of the altercation he had with a flight attendant, evidently over his refusal to stow his baggage properly. But that shouldn’t prevent Amanda from getting his 15 minutes of fame as a poster child for oppression. He’ll probably get free airline tickets out of it too.

“Amanda” Stevens, alleged victim of oppression.

On a tip from Don M.
