MAN REFUSES TO SIT NEXT ELDERLY BLACK WOMAN ON FLIGHT

Scores of people have declared a boycott against Ryanair, a Dublin-based budget airline, after video of an apparently racist confrontation on a recent flight surfaced on the internet. The video was shot last Thursday before the departure of the Ryanair flight from Barcelona, Spain, to London. The video shows a white man yelling because he doesn’t want to sit next to an elderly black woman. A male flight attendant tried to defuse the situation and asked the woman if she wanted to sit somewhere else, to which she initially refused. As the confrontation continued, the man yelled, “Don’t talk to me in a foreign language, you stupid ugly cow!” He also threatened the woman with violence: “I’ll tell you this,” the man told her. “If you don’t go to another seat, I’ll put you into another seat.” The flight staff has come under criticism for not kicking the man off the flight and for responding to the situation by allowing the woman to move seats instead of him
