Southwest under fire after pilot allegedly says ‘Let’s go Brandon’ during flight

Southwest Airlines are facing criticism by social media users after one of their pilots allegedly said “Let’s Go Brandon” during a flight. 

On Saturday, Twitter was filled with intense reactions, provoked by a Southwest pilot allegedly shouting “Let’s Go Brandon” over the plane’s intercom system. The scene reportedly occurred on Friday morning on a flight from Houston to Albuquerque, as per FOX News.

Responding to the criticism, Southwest said in a statement:

“[The airline] takes pride in providing a welcoming, comfortable, and respectful environment for the millions of Customers who fly with the airline each year and behavior from any individual that is divisive or offensive will not be tolerated.

The controversial phrase “Let’s Go Brandon” went viral following race car driver Brandon Brown’s victory in a NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama.

During a post-race interview, the crowd can be heard chanting “F*ck Joe Biden.” However, the reporter interviewing Brown claims they were saying “Let’s Go Brandon” instead.
