Jesus Christ, people, get a grip.
Ivanka Trump just had a bumpy start to her Xmas holiday … an out-of-control passenger on her flight began verbally berating her and “jeering” at her 3 kids.
Ivanka was on a JetBlue flight leaving JFK Thursday morning with her family when a passenger started screaming, “Your father is ruining the country.” The guy went on, “Why is she on our flight. She should be flying private.” The guy had his kid in his arms as he went on the tirade.
A passenger on the flight tells TMZ Ivanka ignored the guy and tried distracting her kids with crayons.
JetBlue personnel escorted the unruly passenger off the flight. As he was removed he screamed, “You’re kicking me off for expressing my opinion?!!”
BTW … Ivanka, her family and bunch of cousins were all in coach.
Some clown ID’d as a Hunter College professor said his husband was the one harassing her, although he’s mysteriously deleted his tweets. Needless to say his Twitter timeline is chock full of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
So, can we have a national conversation about not acting like an asshole on planes? Meanwhile, in other tolerance news, some artists are butthurt that Ivanka’s hang their art on her walls.
A growing group of artists is hitting back against Ivanka Trump, with some even demanding the president-elect’s daughter take their work down off her walls.
A collection of New York artists have banded together to protest Donald Trump through his daughter, with a campaign called ‘Dear Ivanka’.
The colorful crusade was created by the Halt Action Group, which was founded by curator Alison Gingeras, dealer Bill Powers, Jonathan Horowitz, and a group of others associated with the art scene, Bloomberg reports.
‘Dear Ivanka, we need to talk about your dad,’ the group’s website reads.
‘Racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny, and homophobia are not acceptable anywhere—least of all in the White House.
Just keep it up people, and her dad won’t even have to campaign for re-election in 2020.
Update: Here are a couple of Lasner’s deleted tweets:
Chasing down people to harass them. So charming.
