A black man wearing a “Trump 2020” mask was kicked off a Southwest Airlines after lowering it to eat a snack, a video appears to show.

The passenger — who was also sporting a “Black Voices for Trump” hat — is seen talking to a crew member while holding a bag of mixed nuts and wearing a face mask under his chin.

“Tell us the policy that says he cannot eat with his mask off?” a woman filming the video can be heard asking in the footage shared by SV News. “It’s the hat and the mask — it’s not the eating.”

A second video then shows the man leaving the Tuesday morning Tampa-to-Dallas flight.

The incident — which Southwest said came after the man repeatedly refused to wear a mask — was soon tweeted by Donald Trump Jr., who bashed the airline.

“WTF??? This is disgusting. I’ve been on a thousand flights in the last few months and everyone lowers their masks to eat and drink. I did it on a southwest flight earlier this week,” he wrote.

But a rep for Southwest Airlines insists the ejection came after multiple employees asked him to wear a face covering, according to the Washington Examiner.

“Our reports indicate that a Customer traveling on Flight 2632, with scheduled service from Tampa to Dallas, was asked repeatedly by more than one employee at different times to wear a face mask. The customer did not comply with our crew’s multiple verbal requests — including while boarding the flight before seated,” the company rep said.

He was removed from the flight and placed on another one, the rep said.

“The decision was made to return to the gate and re-accommodate him on a later flight to his final destination after receiving assurances he would comply with our face-covering policy. We regret the inconvenience the situation created for all involved, but our crew must uphold the well-being and comfort of all Passengers.”

Company policy requires all passengers age 2 and older to wear face coverings on flights to ‘avoid the spread’ of coronavirus.

    He was kicked off cause of his support of Trump & not for no damn mask! 1st off, noone can eat w./a mask on! & 2nd, others had their masks off to eat too, cause you can’t eat w/a mask on! I am so tired of all these damn mask police & anti-Trump asswipes too!

    This is a lot of BS. To southwest airline, you don’t deserve capital letters in this comment… I will never fly on your airline again. You are out of line with this and all your Deranged Trump Syndrome. You have no idea how this will cause backlash. I hope he sues the crap out of this airline company. I hope the other people have him their contact information.

      The lady who was questioning the supervisor & filing it, is a constitutional lawyer & the guy’s friend. Look up the interview Dave Rubin did w/this guy on YT. It’s very good. These people are traveling around the country promoting Black Voices For Trump & talking to people about the constitution.

    Freeking WALMART and other businesses have masks, in case you forgot or simple do not have one.
    WHY CAN”T THE AIRLINES HAVE EXTRA MASKS TO PROVIDE TO THEIR PASSENGERS.
    In this case, they were just breaking balls!

      Dude had a mask. But, you can’t eat w/a mask on. He took it off to drink a coffee & have a snack. The threw him off cause he supports Trump! Other passengers had masks off too, they didn’t get kicked off! It would have been epic if every passenger said, if you kick him off, we’re leaving too, & then demanded their $ back!
