A Canadian professor went on an unhinged Twitter rant as he attempted to get a flight attendant in trouble for not wearing a mask aboard the flight he was on.
Amir Attaran, part of the University of Ottawa’s Faculties of Law and School of Epidemiology and Public Health, called out the unsuspecting flight attendant, United Airlines and the United States over coronavirus policies in a series of social media posts over the weekend.
Attaran’s first tweet posted photos of the United flight attendant without a mask, which is required for all flights out of Canada.
“Hey @United, why are you breaking the law? Masks are required on all flights out of Canada. Your flight attendant isn’t wearing one!” he tweeted as he also included government agencies and Canadian news outlets.
United Airlines, in a tweet, replied, “Hi Amir, thanks for bringing this to our attention. We’ve informed the appropriate teams for further review.”
