What did the women kicked-off from the American airlines post?
Jordan wrote in her Facebook post that she, along with her baby, was dicriminated by the plane crew. Despite her explaining the disease, the airline crew asked them to deboard the flight as they failed to present a letter from a doctor. She requested people to quiet being ignorant so that people like her don't have to explain them in future.
