Man kicked off flight for wearing too many clothes

Man kicked off flight for wearing too many clothes

British Airways says Mr Williams was turned away from the flight for "rude" behaviour, according to Metro.

"My sister-in-law booked my flight because I was flat broke from being homeless in Iceland", he claims.

Speaking to MailOnline, Mr Williams said: 'If I was a young white male or a young white female I would have been treated slightly differently'.

Mr Williams, from Catford, London, whose parents originate from Cuba, Jamaica, Ireland and England said: 'The reason I say it's racial profiling - and I hate pulling the race card - is because my whole experience of life shows me that the older generations are very nationalist'.

In a video he posted online, Williams said that airline employees told him he'd be able to get on the flight if he put on all his clothes, which he did.

Continuing, Ryan said: "I asked politely if I could wear all the clothes in my case and still board". His behavior eventually led to him being pepper sprayed and removed from the airport by security.

After being taken to the police station, he then returned to the airport to catch a second flight, but was again turned away after the previous incident. He included a video of himself asking why he could not board and a staff member saying: "Do we need to call the police?"

He tweeted: "Being held at Iceland Keflavik airport because I had no baggage put all the clothes on and they still won't let me on...."

"Security were called. At this point I started to film".

He explained the full story on Twitter earlier today: "Arrived to airport in Iceland with no luggage on my booking". Williams reportedly paid a hand baggage only fare which meant he could only bring a small bag on the flight.

Ryan later tried to get an Easyjet flight home the next day, but was "offloaded" from the flight after the airline heard what had happened to him with BA.
