This video took place on a Houston-bound plane waiting for takeoff at Miami International Airport.

By the time the unmasked passengers were removed, the flight had been delayed for nine hours, though it is unclear how much of that delay was related to the mask issue.

While the individuals left the plane, a group of passengers started singing lyrics from the 1969 song "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" by Steam. The singing was captured on video and shared onTwitter

The tweet also claimed that only two of the passengers were removed for refusing to wear masks, while the other was removed for getting into an argument about the matter.

American Airlines confirmed that two passengers were removed for violating masks rules in a statement sent toThe Independentthat did not mention a third passenger.

"Prior to takeoff, American Airlines Flight 1469, with service from Miami (MIA) to Houston (IAH), returned to the gate to deplane two customers who failed to comply with crew member instructions and refused to adhere to federal face covering requirements," the statement read. "We thank our team members for their professionalism and apologize to our customers for the inconvenience."

On Twitter, one person commented: What was the point of this? They were removed, rightfully so. so why agitate the situation any more with 5yr old behavior.
