The furious white passenger who had a splenic on his black seatmate last week on Ryanair's flight was accused of the racially charged outrage due to travel-like temper, who said in a television interview that he was with Safety is not racist.
During the interview on " Good Morning Britain ", the penitent David Mesher became the youngest human to claim he was not racist after viral videos or tweets or social media posts proved otherwise.
Among the apologetic non-racists who have recently been arrested in public demonstrations: a lawyer who cried after hearing in a restaurant they speak Spanish; a Lyft passenger going for a drunken, racist tirade on blacks; and Roseanne Barr, whose tweet had been called by former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, a monkey cost the comic actress her sitcom.
Mesher's moment came on a Ryanair flight from Barcelona to London. He tried to get to his window seat, and Delsie Gayle, a 77-year-old woman sitting next to him, did not move fast enough to avoid him, Mesher said in the interview. Mesher released a series of threats and insults, Gayle said he should not speak to him in any other language, calling the Septuagenian a "stupid ugly cow" and "an ugly black bastard."
Another passenger, David Lawrence, recorded the incident and communicated it on social media, called for Mesher to be prosecuted, and criticized the low-cost airline for not throwing it all out of the plane. After Gayle had changed his place, he drove one after another in a row to London.
The interview on Friday was for Mesher the attempt to explain his team after spending a week in Infamie.
"I probably calmed down a bit and ordered her to get up," he said on the show, adding that he "absolutely regrets" his behavior. "I am by no means a racist person and it is just a fit of rage at the time," he said.
When asked what he would say to Gayle, Mesher said, "I apologize for all the hardship you have had there and since."
Gayle reached the British media and said that she was Mesher's apology "I do not think so," she told the Independent, "You must forget and forgive, but it will be a long time before I finish what he did to me."
Gayle said she was shocked and depressed "I feel very bad," the retiree told ITV. "He paid for the vacation, and I paid mine, so why does he abuse me for my skin color?"
Also Authorities in two countries are investigating the incident after vice-mayor of Barcelona, Jaume Asens, denounced Ryanair's reaction as "unacceptable" and promised the officials of the Barcelona City Council niche prosecutors.
In following [Tweets] on Tuesday, Asens asked for the witnesses to come forward Barcelona is a welcoming and inclusive city that would not tolerate such a verbal attack.
Ryanair reported the matter to the Essex police in the UK, causing the Spanish police to join.
But many in the British public seemed reluctant to let Ryanair off the hook because he did not throw Mesher off the plane. A Ryanair petition to "apologize and pay Delsie Gayle for non-compliance with racist abuse on her flight" was signed by more than 300,000 people by Friday. The petition said that the airline did nothing to "confirm the racist incident".
"In 1955, Rosa Parks refused to hand over her seat on a bus to a white man who boycotted the Montgomery bus," the petition said. "[Sixty-three] Years later, Ryanair stands on standby, while white people demand that no black person sit next to them. That's a shame.
