Cody Garbrandt Kicked Off Plane After Son Wouldn’t Wear A Mask (VIDEO)

Cody Garbrandt was removed from a flight after he had issues with his son not wearing his mask properly

Cody Garbrandt Kicked Off Plane After Son Wouldn’t Wear A Mask (VIDEO)

These days we have seen plenty of issues occur with people not following mask protocols on airplanes. However Cody Garbrandt found himself in one such situation, not because of him, but due to his two year old son.

To put it mildly, Cody “No Love” Garbrandt is not the type of guy that you would want to mess with in the streets. Just in case his neck tattoo and general tough guy demeanor was not enough to already clue you into that notion.

While he has lost three of his last four in the Octagon, he returned to form with an impressive knockout win over Raphael Assuncao. Now he is in line for a title shot at 125lb, but he is still looking to earn a 135lb title shot against the likes of Jose Aldo.

Cody Garbrandt Gets “No Love” From The Flight Crew

Recently, Cody Garbrandt found himself in a bit of a difficult situation. He posted a pair of videos to his Instagram recently, that showed the type of troubles he had, while getting on an airplane.

As he explains it, he and his family were asked to leave the plane because his two year old son was having trouble keeping his mask on. He then uploaded a subsequent video that showed the pilots also failing to wear masks, despite the circulated air on an airplane.

“F—k @southwestair got kicked off because my 2 year old son wouldn’t put his mask over his face. This coward flight attendant hid his bitch ass in the bathroom,” Garbrandt wrote, before adding:

“Kicking a two year old off a plane ride but your captains aren’t wearing their masks, while we all are full capacity sharing the same air! What a joke @southwestair

Now to be fair, there is no doubt that it is important to follow mask regulations, but it is equally crucial to remember that there are more than one side to a story. That said, the video paints a perspective of Cody Garbrandt being victim to overly strict enforcers of masks.

At the end of the day, two year olds are a bit difficult to manage at times, especially when onboard an airplane. So while you may want to agree that it is important to wear your mask, Cody was likely doing the best he could; not to mention the issue with the pilots.

What do you make of these videos from Cody Garbrandt?

First, his child is not two years old, he’s nearly 3 years old. Second, it’s an FAA guideline and a Southwest airlines rule that any child two years or older must wear a mask. There is a “no exceptions“ policy in place. That same policy applies to an MMA fighter just as it applies to any other person. Third, he acted like a complete ass. Imagine how many times a day these flight crews must put up with bullshit like this. Every day they have to hear people complain about a simple yet very effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 – wearing a mask. For him to get up in their space and in their face instead of just handling this situation like an adult, is absolutely ridiculous. He could’ve apologized and attempted to adjust his child’s mask or make him wear it, but instead he decided to post shit on Instagram and throw a tantrum. It’s the hallmark of someone who is uneducated and immature. Fourth, he actually broke the law. There is a new law in place to handle “unruly passengers” on flights. It is designed to prevent the kind of things that Cody did in response to the situation. You don’t get up in the face and argue with flight crew and potentially in danger them or other passengers because you can’t follow the rules. That penalty actually carries up to a $35,000 fine and potential jail time. Smooth move Cody. Grow up.

As far as the flight crew not wearing their masks in the cockpit of the jet, they’re not required to. Pilots are tested daily and share space in a pressurized cabin separate from the rest of the plane that has its own air filtration system. Again, he looks even more ignorant with every video he posts. You would think this guy would have some empathy and compassion for mask wearing as someone who talks all the time about being there for a child who went through pediatric cancer. If he really understood that world he would know that it’s not uncommon for children younger than his son to have to wear masks just to protect themselves from dying from basic germs and colds while they are undergoing treatment. By not taking mask wearing seriously he’s putting others lives in jeopardy.
