A Los Angeles-based food stylist says he was asked to step off a Delta Air Lines flight for questioning over one of his tattoos. Adam Pearson has the words “Atom Bomb” on his fingers.
Pearson, a frequent flier who has logged 142,000 miles this year on Delta, says he had just settled into his seat on the flight to Memphis when a flight attendant asked him to come to the front of the plane, reports the LA Times. He says his first thought was that he was getting an upgrade.
Instead, Pearson was asked to leave the plane and faced questioning by the captain and flight attendant for “suspicious behavior.” He says he was told another passenger had complained about his tattoos.
