Spirit Airlines apologizes to conservative Parkland student after stewardess rant


Kyle Kashuv, a survivor of the mass shooting at a Florida high school last month, stands apart from his fellow students who are calling for more gun control, and has been ridiculed for it, as he is a Republican, and has been outspoken in his support of the Second Amendment.

Kashuv also didn’t appreciate a stewardess on his flight into Baltimore Thursday morning who was putting in a plug for the anti-gun “March for Our Lives” event, set to take place Saturday, and shot out a statement on Twitter to report what happened.

“Just landed in Baltimore on @SpiritAirlines and the stewardess felt compelled to give us all a speech about the March for Our Lives, which openly says on the petition are trying to categorically ban AR-15’s, and made everyone clap. Can anything just be non-political anymore?” Kashuv tweeted.

Just over an hour later, Spirit Airlines responded to his tweet, writing, “While we appreciate that our Team Members are individuals, we don’t believe politics should be part of the Guest experience. We are looking into the incident and apologize to any Guests offended by these comments.”

“That’s great to hear. Please keep me posted,” Kashuv tweeted back.

Kashuv was also in Washington, D.C. on March 8, where he met with First Lady Melania Trump and President Trump.

He is back in D.C. Thursday meeting with lawmakers, and attending an event for millennials. He also tweeted about Thursday the #STOPSchoolViolenceAct being added to the House spending bill.

He is a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 people were killed in a mass shooting last month.
