Woman Kicked Off United Airlines Flight For ‘Misgendering’ Flight Attendant: ‘Hate Crime’

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

A woman traveling on United Airlines has been kicked off the flight along with her baby and elderly mother because she made the mistake of “misgendering” a stewardess.

“I’ll tell you what happened right now. I was speaking with the flight attendants and I got their pronouns wrong. The other flight attendant didn’t like it,” the woman said before stating that she apologized and explained to the flight attendants that she is “not really well versed with pronouns.”

However, despite apologizing for hurting the flight attendant’s feelings, the woman was accused of committing a “hate crime” and kicked off the flight. Furthermore, she was told she could be banned from flying United for life due to the seriousness of the alleged “hate crime.”

“They are saying that it’s a hate crime that I did. That I might not ever be able to fly United. We don’t know how we are going to get back today. I don’t know what my rights are here.”

“We were denied boarding – myself, my six-month old son, my mother – they took our luggage on the plane, which includes my thyroid medication, which I will be very sick without.” Watch:

Harry Potter author JK Rowling is warning that freedom of speech is “at an end” after strict new laws are rolled out around the world to criminalize speech.

Controversial new laws in Scotland make misgendering transgender people a criminal offense

“Scotland’s Hate Crime Act comes into effect today. Women gain no additional protections, of course, but well-known trans activist Beth Douglas, darling of prominent Scottish politicians, falls within a protected category. Phew!” she posted on social media.

She warned, “Freedom of speech and belief are at an end in Scotland if the accurate description of biological sex is deemed criminal”.

She also defiantly goaded police to arrest her. British lawyer Rajan Barot wrote: “Today’s posts by [JK Rowling] were calculated to cause maximum impact on a day when a law protecting trans people came into effect in Scotland.”

Ms Rowling responded: “Totally agree. I have been DELIBERATELY DEFIANT, in spite of some random bloke’s advice. A full investigation MUST be mounted. #ArrestMe.”
