A Florida man was kicked off a United Airlines flight Wednesday…for wearing a flimsy red thong on his face instead of a mask.

Apparently, this isn’t the first time he’s pulled this panties stunt to make a statement about mask-wearing mandates.



“I think the best way to illustrate absurdity is with absurdity,” said the Florida native.

“The customer clearly wasn’t in compliance with the federal mask mandate and we appreciate that our team addressed the issue on the ground prior to takeoff, avoiding any potential disruptions on the air,” said a statement from United.
