Reporter Kicked off Southwest Flight


Looks like it wasn’t a great birthday for WXLV (Winston-Salem) Reporter Asal Rezaei.

Rezaei was ready to board a Southwest flight, when she was told she could not fly.

According to a tweet posted by Rezaei, she was yanked from the flight because she “looked out of it.”

Rezaei admits that she takes medication to deal with “severe flight anxiety” and it appears that Southwest thought she was drugged up enough, not to let her board.

To top it off, it all happened on her birthday.

I’m thinking next year, you might want to take the car.

Here is her tweet about the incident:
