On Thursday, Delta Airlines stated that it has banned retired U.S. Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill, the man who took credit for killing Osama Bin Laden, for failing to wear a mask while on a recent flight.
O’Neill, 44, posted a tweet claiming that he was banned from the airline “for posting a picture.” In a now-deleted tweet posted earlier this week, O’Neill posed for the mask-less selfie while on a Delta plane, and captioned the image, “I’m not a p***y.”
“Part of every customer’s commitment prior to traveling on Delta is the requirement to acknowledge our updated travel policies, which includes wearing a mask,” a Delta spokesman told FOX Business. “Failure to comply with our mask-wearing mandate can result in losing the ability to fly Delta in the future.”
The ex-Navy SEAL had participated in the aid on Bin Laden’s compound in 2011 and is credited with firing the shots that ultimately killed the terrorist leader. He was honorably discharged from the Navy in 2012.
