Couple Kicked Off Flight For Racist Comments

A man was removed from a United Airlines flight bound for Houston after making multiple racist comments to a couple in front of him.

According to KHOU, passengers were boarding a flight in Chicago when an unidentified man asked a Pakistani-Indian couple, "That's not a bomb in your bag, is it?"

After the man repeated the question, a passenger who heard the remarks left her seat and approached flight attendants.

The Pakistani women also left her seat to speak with flight attendants, informing them of other comments the man had made, including asking her Indian boyfriend where he was from as well as telling them, "all illegals and all foreigners need to leave the country."

Shortly after, the man and a young woman accompanying him on the flight were asked by United employees to gather their belongings and leave the plane, a moment another passenger recorded.
