Delta apologizes for passenger's profanity-laden Trump rant

ATLANTA (WXIA) -- Delta Air Lines is apologizing after a flight passenger's rant regarding president-elect Trump was shared to social media.

The passenger on the Allentown, Pa.-bound flight from Atlanta is shown standing up in the aisle, shouting "Donald Trump, baby" before clapping his hands and asking if "we got some Hillary [expletive] on here?"

He then went on to say that "he's your president, every [expletive] one of you. If you don't like it, too bad."

The video was apparently taken on Nov. 22 but resurfaced days later and prompted a response from the airline itself.

There, the company who says that all teams involved agree that the man should not have been allowed to continue on the flight.

"Our responsibility for ensuring all customers feel safe and comfortable with Delta includes requiring civil behavior from everyone," a statement from Delta Air Lines reads. "The behavior we see in this video does not square with our training or culture and follow up will continue so we can better ensure our employees will know they will be fully supported to make the right decisions when these issues arise."
