ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A man kicked off a Southwest flight in St. Louis for his offensive t-shirt will now be selling offensive t-shirts.
Daniel Podolsky, 22, was the subject of a FOX 2 report on Monday night. He wore a “Broad City” t-shirt with the F-word on it to Lambert airport. Southwest airlines would not let him board the delayed flight wearing the shirt. After a 90 minute delay he was able to take his seat while wearing a jacket.
The trouble started when he took his jacket off. A representative from Southwest asked him to remove the shirt. Podolsky refused and the exchange got heated. He was asked to wear the shirt inside out. Still, he refused claiming his 1st amendment rights.
The entire incident was caught on video. The exchange went viral and has been featured on Buzzfeed, the Huffington Post, Uproxx, CNN, Vice and many more online news outlets.
Podolsky is capitalizing on his new found fame. He is now setting up shop and selling “Southwest” t-shirts. Except, they don’t say Southwest. The shirts say something much more offensive. The shirts go on sale on Thursday on Podolsky’s new website.
