This is the moment a white South African man and his pretty blonde girlfriend get kicked off a plane on which they are surrounded by black people who complained that he was a racist.

 

A video of the incident shows a flight attendant standing in the aisle listening to a complaint from a very eloquent black woman complaining that he was a racist.

 

She describes what she claims the man has done to the plane's captain, after which he decides that what she has said is enough to throw the man off the plane, and he orders him to leave. The man's blonde girlfriend then also stands up, and all the black passengers then start clapping and cheering.

 

Local media reported that the incident had started after an altercation between the white man and one of the black passengers who claimed he was on his way to a funeral and did not appreciate being called an "a*sehole" by the white man.

 

When the captain came to see what was going on, a well-spoken woman alleges that the white man also said "you people are all the same" and said she refused to fly with him, saying she felt unsafe.

 

She can be heard saying: "[He] called this gentleman an a*sehole and when we proceeded to say to him that’s unacceptable, he said to me: ‘You people are all the same’.

 

"Sir, you are legally obligated to keep us safe. I do not feel safe going into the air with this kind of aggression."

 

Backed up by the other passengers, she accused him of saying "I’ll bliksem you," a South African term meaning to punch or strike.

 

The couple were then ejected from the flight to Port Elizabeth on Algoa Bay in South Africa's Eastern Cape Province on board a Flysafair plane.

 

The footage was shot last week but came to light after the United Airlines incident.

 

The airline said they were waiting to see if any investigation would be launched into the incident.

 

FlySafair spokesperson Kirby Gordon praised the pilot saying he had been following Civil Aviation Safety procedures.

 

He said: "We are aware of an altercation that took place between two passengers on flight FA232 on Friday 7th April.

 

"We are awaiting approach from the authorities to provide any required information that would be required to resolve this case.

 

"It is the obligation of the Captain of an aircraft to make the final call regarding his view on any potential threats on board the aircraft.

 

"In accordance with this, we would like to commend the Captain for following Civil Aviation Safety procedures. Safety is, and will always remain our primary concern."
