Passenger Dennis Busch, who posted part of the confrontation on TikTok, claimed that the man had been making racist and sexist comments to other passengers during the flight before beginning to record.
After the plane appears to have landed, Armstrong can be seen gesturing with the middle finger, saying ‘that’s what you think of us’, before quickly walking down the aisle to confront a flight attendant.
When the flight attendant sees Armstrong approaching him, he tells the passenger to sit down several times.
Armstrong seems to be slurring when he responds, ‘What? That? That? What are you going to get me out of this flight? I’m already here.’
He then goes on saying, ‘No! That’s what you think of us. ‘
Just seconds later, Armstrong is trapped in his seat making one last gesture with his middle finger, saying, ‘God bless America.’
Armstrong is seen grunting in his seat and chewing on his mask.
He then gets up and confronts the stewardess once more, saying ‘You can’t hold us!’
Once the doors of the plane were opened, two policemen are seen escorting him out of the plane.
He was taken to a hospital for an examination before the police summoned him for public intoxication.
Busch nicknamed Armstrong ‘Kevin’ in the video, meaning a male version of Karen – a pejorative insult to white women doing titled scenes in public.
He said Armstrong started behaving strangely when he started yelling at an Asian woman, telling her to sit down while she stood up to “deal with a back problem.”
Busch wrote in an Instagram post: “ He then told the flight attendants that the woman and the person he was with ‘didn’t belong here.
“After asking him to calm down, the man went into a total collapse of racist, sexist and belligerent comments, culminating in his arrest at the door,” Busch wrote.
“We were lucky to have such a well-trained crew that they remained calm throughout the flight!”
American Airlines thanked its crew for the way they handled the incident onboard the flight.
“We thank our team for their professionalism and our clients for their understanding,” a company spokesperson added in the statement.
