Kid Kicked Off Plane + Everyone Claps – Rude? I Think So
People are so cruel, wouldn't you say?
A seven-year-old boy got kicked off a plane and people started applauding. Whether they knew the reason or not, it is still completely rude. He totally should have gotten off the plane, but there was good reason for it.
For safety measures, he was having a severe allergic reaction to a service dog that was on board one flight that was causing a delay in the flight. Eventually, the airline had to remove the family to remove any threat that his condition would worse in the air.
The family was okay with that, but the parents are not happy how discouraged their son was when the plane decided to clap.
According to USA Today:
As a dad, I was just hopeless right there. I just looked at the people clapping. I was just shaking my head; I was like man lets get out of here. You don't know how much time people have or why they are hurting. Just be nice. Be kind," said father George Alvarado.
To make matters even harder, the family was trying to visit family as part of a bucket list for the father who has stage four cancer.
