Trump Supporter Kicked Off Plane, Mocked By Passengers (Video)

An elderly man wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat was escorted off a United Airlines flight at the Shanghai Pudong International Airport on May 21 (video below).

According to United, the senior tried to take someone else's seat while boarding the plane, which was scheduled to fly from Shanghai, China, to Newark, New Jersey, notes KNTV.

A man whose dad was on the flight said the Trump supporter wanted an upgrade to first class, but when that didn't happen, the Trump fan walked to the back of the plane and blocked people from sitting in his row, reports WNBC.

The passenger reportedly refused to move, and became disruptive after being told to leave the plane.

All the passengers had to de-plane the flight while the local police moved in, notes KNTV.

According to a United spokesman, the elderly man "eventually left the aircraft on his own accord."

Some of his fellow passengers shouted, "Lock him up!" a familiar refrain used by Trump supporters during political rallies who wanted Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton jailed.

The flight eventually took off, but had to stop at the San Francisco International Airport to get a new crew, which added hours to the already-delayed flight. The plane finally landed in Newark at 2:22 a.m. on May 21.

Just south of China, in Jakarta, Indonesia, the cops detained detained 141 men for allegedly participating in a gay sex party on May 21, reports Agence France-Presse.

"Our officers did an undercover investigation and raided the place on Sunday," senior detective Nasriadi told AFP.

According to Nasriadi, attendees had to pay an entry fee into a building that housed a sauna and a gym where there was a striptease show and a "sex party."

The alleged party organizers, as well as men suspected of being striptease dancers and prostitutes, were arrested and could get up to 10 years behind bars.

A coalition of legal aid groups, who are representing the accused, said the police would not let those who were arrested get dressed, took them to the police station for questioning and posted naked pictures of them on social media: "These arrests are a bad precedent for other gender and sexual minorities."

Nasriadi denied the picture accusation: "We work professionally."

AFP reports that there has been a crackdown on gay people in the Muslim-majority country. There was a raid earlier in May on a suspected homosexual sex party in Surabaya, where eight men were charged with violating anti-porn laws.

In the Aceh province, two men were recently sentenced to public canings for having sex, a first for homosexual activities in the conservative area.
