American Airlines has come under fire by supporters of the Satanic Temple after a Florida woman was threatened to be removed from a plane last month, unless she changed her “Hail Satan” t-shirt.
The airline claimed that the message on her shirt was “offensive”.
RT reports: Key West resident Swati Runi Goyal was awaiting takeoff aboard a flight headed for Las Vegas on the day before Halloween – known in some regions as “Devil’s Night” – when an American Airlines crew member approached her demanding an immediate wardrobe change.
“The gentleman asked me if I understood what ‘offensive’ meant,” Goyal told the New York Post. “I said, ‘I’m a foreign-born minority woman. I know what my T-shirt means and my T-shirt is not offensive.’”
