Adam Radogna: Spirit Airlines makes flier remove ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ mask in video
A Spirit Airlines passenger on Friday, January 28, was told to remove his mask featuring the phrase 'Let’s Go Brandon FJB'. The slogan, popular among former President Donald Trump's supporters, is code for “F**k Joe Biden.”
In the viral TikTok video, Adam Radogna, who was flying from Ohio to Florida on Spirit Airlines, can be seen wearing an electronic mask on the flight is approached by a flight attendant who considered it offensive and asks Adam to instead wear a mask supplied by the airline.
The flight attendant said, “It can be offensive. So, we’re not going to go back and forth. Go ahead and put the blue one on, OK.”
“This is not America anymore,” Radogna replied on the video after the flight attendant walked away. “It’s not America anymore. They make their own rules. It’s her rule.”
“Let’s go Brandon” is a popular slogan among conservatives since NBC Sports reporter, during an interview with NASCAR driver Brandon Brown, stated that the fans in the background were saying “Let’s go Brandon” when their actual rally cry was “F**k Joe Biden.”
Radogna has accused the private airline company of violating his First Amendment rights, which halts Congress from passing laws that limit free speech. Rodgna also told that he was not asked to remove his sweatshirt which also read “Let’s Go Brandon.”
The attendant can be seen telling Radogna that political statements are banned in the flight. Radogna retaliates by arguing that a mask featuring the slogan “Black Lives Matter’ would likely be allowed in the airline.
Also when the flight attendant asks, Radogna suddenly claims that his first name is Brandon.
The viral video is viewed by thousands of people on TikTok alone. Radogna also uploaded a follow-up video, where he can be seen confronting several flight attendants of Spirit Airline after reaching the destination.

Spirit Airlines has still not issued any reply since the incident but they posted a generic message that Radogna could reach out to them over the direct message to complain to the airline.
This isn’t my flight. It’s someone else who was told their mask was offensive by one of your flight attendants and quite frankly it disgusts me. You require masks yet when someone has one on one of your woke flight attendants demands it’s covered. Pathetic. I’m offended by that— Fieldsy Sanderz (@FieldsySanderz) January 28, 2022
