An American Airlines (AA) passenger was deplaned after he refused to wear a face mask in compliance with the company’s COVID-19 safety policy.

Brandon Straka, who is an actor and hairstylist, was flying from New York to Dallas Texas when the incident occurred.

The airliner reportedly banned Straka until “face coverings are no longer required for customers”.

A video making the rounds on social media shows the actor arguing with flight attendants, minutes before he was asked to leave the plane.
