Should someone be pulled off a flight for having tattoos?
Adam Pearson, an LA food stylist was asked to step off a flight as another passenger had reported his ‘suspicious-looking’ tattoos. Soon after Pearson twittered “Just pulled off delta flight, passenger said I was suspicious looking due to my tattoos @DeltaAssist not happy at all #goldmedallion fail”. This tweet kicked off an online furor of angry foodies and tattoo enthusiasts.
The question is; was this the right thing to do? Should flight attendants have listened to one prejudice passenger who judged someone purely by their own standards? Or should the passenger who complained have been asked to move instead? Who in this crazy world is in the right?
