Smith, who has been vocal about not being vaccinated, went on to express his feelings on the subject of face masks.

“You know my social media people tell me that you like me face-to-face, but you know what I can’t say face-to-face what I want,” he began.

He went on to state he felt he was kicked off the plane for simply standing up for what he believed in.

“Ya, I’ve been drinking. I’ve been sitting in an airport for three hours. Ya, I’m drinking. I ain’t drunk, but they throw me off the plane because I’m drunk, because you people won’t stand up and tell everybody what bullshit this is,” the famous actor said in his Instagram video.

“I just told them I didn’t feel comfortable about sitting next to somebody that had to wear a mask, and I’m off the plane,” he said. (RELATED: Major Media Outlets Mum On New Study Showing Masks Make ‘Little To No Difference’ In Stopping COVID-19)
