A man in a Burger King crown on a JetBlue flight from Jamaica to New York Tuesday was arrested after hurling racial slurs at other passengers and assaulting a flight attendant.
The bizarre scene began, according to a video shared online, once the man in the fast food crown accused another passenger of taking his seat on the plane. In the video, the man can be heard screaming at the flight attendant “where is 25A?”
He then goes on to claim another passenger kneed him in the stomach.
The confrontation among passengers escalates on the New York City-bound flight as the White passenger calls other passengers the N-word. He also calls another passenger a b—- during his racist and misogynist rant.

The flight attendants on the plane attempt to calm the passenger, who is becoming increasingly unhinged.
Eventually, a flight attendant tells the man, “I don’t care what she did. You’re being disrespectful. Shut the f— up for just two seconds.”

The airline said the man has since been banned from flying with JetBlue.
According to a report from TMZ, Kingston police in Jamaica removed the passenger in handcuffs to an audience of passengers, who were clapping and cheering as he was escorted down the terminal.
