A ruckus occurred Thursday morning at New York's JFK International Airport when a gay man loudly confronted Ivanka Trump on a JetBlue plane and was then removed before it took off.
"Your father is ruining the country," the man said to Trump, according to TMZ. The oldest daughter of the president-elect allegedly did not respond, even when she was asked why she was flying coach and not a private plane as her father does. JetBlue officials removed the man and his husband -- who, like Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, were traveling with children. The man who confronted Trump said, "You're kicking me off for expressing my opinion?"
JetBlue officials released a statement to TMZ that crew members routinely remove passengers "causing conflict."
According to the gossip site, one of the gay men tweeted the following message before the altercation: "Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them."
