Gay Couple Booted Off JetBlue Flight For "Harassing" Ivanka Trump

We're stunned the future First Daughter flies commercial!

A gay couple was kicked off a JetBlue flight after they were accused of "harassing" Ivanka Trump about her father's upcoming presidency.

Matthew Lasner and Dan Goldstein were boarding a JetBlue flight home for the holidays when they noticed the future First Daughter on the plane, along with her husband Jared Kushner. Goldstein, a lawyer, decided to challenge Trump about her father.

In now-deleted tweets, Lasner wrote, “Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them. #banalityofevil.”

He later tweeted, "My husband expressed displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard and they kicked us off.”

According to TMZ, Goldstein told Trump, “Your father is ruining the country”, and asked other passengers: “Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private.”

As he and Lasner were escorted off the plane, Goldstein reportedly remarked, “You’re kicking me off for expressing my opinion.”

In a statement, JetBlue said the decision to remove passengers "is not taken lightly."

“If the crew determines that a customer is causing conflict on the aircraft, the customer will be asked to deplane, especially if the crew feels the situation runs the risk of escalation during flight. In this instance, our team worked to re-accommodate the party on the next available flight.”

Since coverage of the incident, Trump supporters have shared Lasner and Goldstein's address and personal information online and been tweeting their displeasure.
