A dentist who caters to celebrities in Hollywood was reportedly kicked off a flight for making an anti-Trump comment to a flight attendant.
Shawn Sadri, a 35-year-old immigrant from Iran, who practices in Los Angeles and Manhattan, was returning to New York from Hollywood after a week of performing cosmetic dental procedures for his clients attending the Oscars, the New York Daily News reported. He sat next to an unaccompanied “6- or 7-year-old boy” of Latino descent, who was crying and nervous before takeoff.
“I asked the boy, ‘Are you OK? Are you traveling alone?’” says Sadri, who has served high-profile clients such as actor Aaron Paul and athletes Jose Canseco and Gabby Douglas.
When a flight attendant came over to assess the situation, Sadri told the flight attendant jokingly that “maybe Trump is trying to deport” the boy.
“Don’t say that,” the flight attendant snapped back at him.
“Fine, you must be a Trump supporter,” he told the flight attendant. “And she said, ‘What if I am?’ So I said ‘If you are, you are, but you’re also incompetent and need to do your job. Why am I dealing with this kid?’”
