Southwest Flight Attendant Posts Nasty Message With Pic Of Pro-Trump Passenger

Southwest Airlines is investigating a Facebook post by a flight attendant that showed a passenger in a Trump t-shirt.

Chicago, IL - A Southwest Airlines’ flight attendant is in the hot seat after he posted a picture of a passenger wearing a Trump t-shirt to his personal Facebook page with a snarky remark.

The flight attendant’s picture featured a Southwest passenger who was a Trump supporter sitting in an aisle seat on a plane, according to USA Today.

The passenger was wearing shorts, a camouflage hat, and an American flag t-shirt with the words “Trump 45” and “Suck it up Buttercup.”

"Someone did NOT get my most Positively Outrageous Service today on my flight ... #notgoingtosuckitup #dumpTrump #eeew,” the flight attendant captioned the picture.

Southwest Airlines uses the tagline “positively outrageous customer service” in its advertising campaigns, USA Today reported.

The airline's flight attendants are known for wearing goofy costumes, singing silly songs, and generally trying to entertain passengers as they work.

Mark Kaminski, 51, shared a screenshot of the male flight attendant’s post on Southwest Airlines’ official Facebook page on Thursday.

“So this is how they treat passengers?” Kaminski asked.

He went on to criticize the flight attendant by saying that he was not “giving his best to a customer because he hates the man’s shirt and our president,” USA Today reported.

"Wow,'' Kaminski wrote. “He should be fired because he can't do his job. Very sad employee.''

Initially, Southwest Airlines responded publicly to the post with a canned response, USA Today reported.

"We aim to provide outstanding service to all who travel with us and regret if we missed the mark. We appreciate you sharing your feedback,” the airline wrote.

But after 100 people had commented on the post, Southwest Airlines took it down from their page, according to USA Today.

Southwest Airlines Spokesman Chris Mainz said that the post was removed "as we investigate and address the issue internally.''

Mainz apologized for the post that was considered an invasion of the passenger's privacy, USA Today reported.

“We aim to provide outstanding service to all who travel with us,'' he said. “The post in question does not reflect the inclusive environment we strive to provide for our customers and employees."

USA Today reported that the flight attendant’s post most likely violated Southwest Airlines’ social media policy, although Mainz refused to reveal details of the airlines’ policy.

Ya know, I have never watched Ellen Degeneres' show, but I must say I have always had respect for her, based upon the little snippets I had seen. She is who she is, and her response to this outcry about her sitting with George W. gives me so much more respect for her...

"I'm friends with a lot of people who don't share the same beliefs that I have.

We're all different, and I think that we have forgotten that it's okay that we are all different...

Just because I don't agree with someone on everything, doesn't mean I am not going to be friends with them...

Be kind to everyone."

She is a great American, and she deserved the Medal of Freedom she received from Obama.

Shoot, if I only had friends that agreed with me on everything, I'd have no friends.

So the intolerant flight attendant was offended? Boo-hoo-hoo. The Regressive Left has been in the face of Trump supporters for three years - spewing their rhetoric and demanding that we accept their opinions but the minute someone wears a t-shirt that represents an opposing view they lose their mind.

This flight attendant just shows me how sick some people really are, very upsetting that they have forgotten this is the land of the free. Free to think as we please, and vote and support who we please!

I don't believe for one minute that Southwest Airlines fired that flight attendant. They're covering for him. Why isn't this being given more media coverage??? Oh, I think I know why...........Southwest hates Trump, just like their 'flight attendant' who they hired and didn't fire.

Amazing.

The left are the only ones who get a pass on wrong and are allowed to have opinions. A TRUMP supporter who was reported doing nothing wrong but supporting out greatest President. Liberals call Trump supporters fascists and racists. . But its the left liberal fascists like this flight attendant who really is the nazi. Picking on an American for exercising his or her freedom to wear a Trump shirt supporting out president.

True totalitarians are the left, far left and mainstream media who pushed the lie of russian collusion for 3 yrs, because they couldnt swallow Hillary the criminal sell out lost.

EVERYONE SHOULD BOYCOT THIS SOUTHWEST AIRLINES TILL THIS RETARD IS FIRED.
