Ted Cruz reacts to viral video of family kicked off plane “In what universe does this make any sense?”

Texas Senator Ted Cruz has reacted to a viral video of a family kicked off the plane because their 2 year old would not wear a mask.

Cruz wrote “In what universe does this make any sense??A two-year-old child? WATCH this video. This isn’t keeping anyone safe. It’s just arbitrary & nonsensical. And infuriating.”

In the video, a flight attendant asks the video to “exit the plane” as the young girl is in tears. The video has over 4.7 million views on Twitter.

United Airlines issued a statement after the video went viral and said “the health and safety of our employees and customers is our highest priority, which is why we have a multi-layered set of policies, including mandating that everyone onboard two and older wears a mask.”

They added “We are investigating this specific incident and have made contact with the family. We also refunded their tickets and returned their car seat and bags.”
