A man claiming to be a retired FBI agent and his wife were filmed being kicked off a plane in Florida after they hurled homophobic slurs at the airline staff – only to claim they were being removed because they are Trump supporters.

Videos posted online show the man and woman arguing with a steward aboard a JetBlue flight departing from West Palm Beach, Florida as she claimed her fellow passengers were ‘f******.’

‘You don’t like the words coming out of my mouth,’ the woman – who has not yet been identified – could be seen telling a steward, before yelling: ‘No words, no words, free speech is dead.’

At that point, the steward tells the woman she and her husband are ‘definitely coming off,’ to which the woman replies, ‘No, we’re not coming off’ insinuating that if he forces them off the plans ‘then you’re going to have to take everyone off.

‘This is ridiculous,’ she says, asking her fellow passengers: ‘Do you guys see what is happening in America.

‘He didn’t like what we said, and now we’re getting kicked off of a plane, and all of y’all are going to have to wait.

‘This is f****** outrageous,’ she continues, adding: ‘You guys, we’re going to turn into China, it’s coming.’

She then calls her fellow passengers ‘sheep,’ and makes baaing noises.

Throughout the woman’s three-minute long tirade, her husband does not say much and slurred his words when he did.

At another point in the video posted online, the woman says she loves Elon Musk, saying ‘he’s the best,’ before screaming the billionaire’s name.

‘He’s the f****** king, because the masked people in our row are kicking us off the plane.’

She then continued to say she planned to sue the airline and her fellow passengers – asking another man at the edge of the frame what his name is.

The man then replies: ‘I guarantee I have more money than you, you’re a f****** jerkoff.

The woman then seems to get offended, claiming she ‘used to dance on Broadway, I’m not getting that f****** vaccine.

‘We did nothing,’ she again claimed, before insinuating that the United States is going to turn into ‘Shanghai.’

Later, a man could be seen trying to escort her husband off the flight, as she yells: ‘Gene, we’re not getting off.

‘Excuse me, it’s our anniversary,’ the woman tells the flight crew, at which point her husband interjects: ‘I’m retired FBI, I know my rights.’

But the JetBlue crew ultimately called in local law enforcement, at which point the woman claims: ‘We’re getting kicked off the plane because we’re Trump supporters,’ prompting another exasperated passenger to say: ‘Don’t do that.’

By the time they were escorted off the flight, a second video showed, their fellow passengers booed them and yelled at them to ‘move.’ 

It remains unclear what led up to the woman’s tirade, but the person who posted it on Reddit claimed the couple was using various ‘racist and homophobic’ slurs, prompting a passenger to inform the flight crew.

It also remains unclear if they are facing any charges. 

DailyMail.com has reached out to JetBlue for comment.

But this is just the latest incident of passengers becoming unruly on a plane since flights resumed following the heart of the pandemic as more people began to once again travel.

In October, a male passenger allegedly punched a female flight attendant on an American Airlines flight from New York City to Orange County, California in a dispute over wearing his mask.

That same month, another apparent anti-masker on a United Airlines flight screamed at a flight attendant and threatened fellow flyers when he was asked to put on his mask. At one point, the passenger even warned someone trying to diffuse the situation: ‘I’ll break your neck.’

Then in December, a Delta flight from Washington to Los Angeles was diverted after a passenger attacked a steward and then turned on an Air Marshal.

Most recently, a Southwest Airlines passenger was accused of pleasuring himself four times and exposing his privates to a woman on a two-and-a-half-hour flight from Seattle to Phoenix.

Antonio Sherrodd McGarity was arrested last month, after Southwest Airlines Flight 3814 landed at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix.

He was taken into federal custody on suspicion of lewd, indecent or obscene acts on an aircraft – a charge that carries a sentence of up to 90 days in prison.

During an interview with the FBI, McGarity allegedly admitted to masturbating on the plane, and he dismissed the entire episode involving the female passenger who witnessed his sexually explicit display as being ‘kind of kinky.’

‘McGarity admitted to law enforcement that he had masturbated during his flight from Seattle, Washington, to Phoenix, Arizona, and that he had an orgasm,’ according to the criminal complaint.

The Federal Aviation Administration has tried to clamp down on the influx of unruly passengers, imposing a zero-tolerance mandate for bad behavior after it escalated following the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol.

Incidents remained elevated after President Joe Biden’s administration imposed a mandate requiring passengers to wear masks on airplanes and in airports because of COVID-19 cases in February 2021. 

The FAA said since January 2021, there have been a record 7,060 unruly passenger incidents reported – and 70% involved masking rules – but the rate has declined 60% since its high in 2021.

The FAA said in February it has referred 80 unruly airplane passengers to the FBI for potential criminal prosecution.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has now warned airline passengers not to be a ‘jerk.’

‘Look. It’s one thing to be grumpy on a flight. I feel that way sometimes,’ Buttigieg in an appearance on ABC’s The View last month. ‘But yeah, it’s another thing to endanger flight crews and to endanger fellow passengers. We have no tolerance for that. The FAA is actually getting ready to announce record fines on people who have done this.’ 

‘If you’re on an airplane, don’t be a jerk,’ he advised. ‘Don’t endanger your fellow passengers.’

‘The bottom line is if you’re on an airplane, and you endanger flight crews and fellow passengers, you may be referred for criminal prosecution as well, and you might lose the privilege of flying on that airline, period,’ Buttigieg said.

He added at the time that the Biden administration is still looking at creating a ‘no-fly’ list for unruly passengers, after several Democratic members of Congress introduced legislation that would create a list for ‘violent offenders convicted of assaulting flight crew — including flight attendants, pilots, and crew members.’

Unions representing flight attendants have voiced support for the legislation.
