Ivanka Trump and her three children were verbally berated by an irate fellow passenger on a flight Thursday morning, until the passenger was finally kicked off the flight for his disruptive behavior.
According to the celebrity news site TMZ, Ivanka and her children were flying out of John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York when another passenger noticed their presence and decided to pick a fight.
“Your father is ruining the country,” the man reportedly said. “Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private.” Despite her family’s great wealth, the Trumps were flying coach on the flight.
According to TMZ, Ivanka tried to ignore the man and keep her children distracted with crayons and a coloring book. Eventually, staff arrived to boot the man off the flight for his behavior, which did little to improve his behavior.
“You’re kicking me off for expressing my opinion?” he reportedly said.
Another man who was apparently the man’s husband had tweeted out prior to the confrontation.
“Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them,” the tweet by Matthew Lasner said, adding on the hashtag #banalityofevil for good measure. In a follow-up tweet, Lasner claimed his husband “expressed displeasure in a calm tone” before both of them were overheard by JetBlue and kicked off the plane.
