Cringeworthy NJ couple hurl homophobic slurs and fly away
There’s no bad publicity…unless you’re Gene and Maddie Kelly of Essex Fells, New Jersey.
In a video that has gone viral, you see the couple being ejected from a flight before takeoff from West Palm Beach, Florida, to the tri-state area.
It’s not yet clear what led to the argument, but the couple can be heard fending for themselves as they claim they got kicked off the flight because they are supporters of former President Donald Trump.
At one point, when confronted by flight attendants, the woman speaks of ‘freedom of speech’ before calling other passengers on the flight ‘sheep’. She and her husband are also filmed calling people around them “f*ggots”.
See an excerpt from the rant below:

Neither Gene nor Maddie Kelly responded to the video.
